3. Viking Glass Covered Dishes

Also from MidModMen+friends are these vibrantly colored dishes that double as artwork. Available in bluenique, persimmon, and amber, these dishes were made in the 1960s with Viking glass. Use them as serving bowls or simply show them off as beautiful decor. Either way, they won’t disappoint.

4. Holiday Potica

If you want to give someone the taste of home baked goodies without actually going through the laborious process, Holiday Potica (po-TEE-tsa) is the gift for you. This European sweet bread is hand-rolled, made of paper-thin dough, and layered with a filling of pecan, poppy seed almond, walnut, walnut apple, or walnut raisin.

5. Illuminidol Betty White Candle

Know a die-hard Betty White fan? Okay, so we all do. Well, get them this Illuminidol Betty White prayer candle so they can finally show their love and devotion to this Golden Girls star through a religious medium. Other popular celebrities and athletes are available (though I don’t know who you’d rather pray to than Betty White).
