If shmancy-looking jewelry and trinket boxes aren't your speed, try a Colored Striped Lacquer Box ($24-39) instead. The boxes come in small and large sizes and five different modern colors for easy decor coordination. It doesn't take a lot of outside-the-box thinking to come up with alternative uses for them, either. Make one your, erm, loooove box, store odds and ends, or add bunches of homemade cookies, tie with a bow, and gift to a friend.
