Why toss your pretty colored pencils in a craft box or desk drawer? The 36 Pencil Bowl ($59) from Shapeways helps you create a gorgeous tabletop piece out of your pencils. We like that we'll be able to see exactly what shade we're reaching for when we draw (and by draw, we mean help our nieces color in their Dora activity book). When we're not using our colored pencils, we can stash stuff in the bowl, like a few pieces of fruit or our keys and bus card. Who knew a multitasker could look so cool?
