When stacked upside-down, these bright green Saguaro glasses resemble a cactus. The set (from DOIY Design) comprises six different shapes—two cups with handles, three without and one with a rounded bottom—all of which have an eight-ounce capacity. Not only do they create the silhouette of a Saguaro when stacked, they also serve different purposes individually. Dishwasher- and freezer-safe, they’re a playful addition to any at-home meal.

Plus, every one was printed in Italy at a 100% solar-powered manufacturer.

Designed for plants that are four to five inches in diameter, Melbourne-based ceramicist Ella Reweti’s two-piece Tilde Planter is composed of a matching basin and saucer (the latter being deep enough to act as a reservoir for excess water). Reweti’s distinct corrugated vessels are made within stacked interchangeable moulds. As Reweti makes each planter by hand, there will be subtle variations in form and color—making every one of them unique.

Further, the cap comes in one size and should fit most adults.
Growing tomatoes year-round is made easier with Bloomscape’s Potted Micro Tomato Plant—which sprouts from PanAm Seed. The healthy plant arrives in nutrient-rich soil and a pot that it won’t outgrow (in one of five different colors).

Its tomatoes veer toward the smaller side but can grow a bit bigger with ideal light, water and pruning.
