    Get it from Amazon for $29+ (available in four colors).

    6. A set of colorful jewelry trays so unique you'll want to display them around your home and not just in your room.


    Promising review: "I purchased these trays for food displays. They are thin and pretty small but everything looked great on them! They definitely can’t handle anything incredibly heavy so in the future I’d use them as decorative trays for utensils/napkins or cheese platters but you can’t beat the price. I love the colors." —melissa houghtalin

    Promising review: "I love Umbra products—they always have a good modern designs. This looks more expensive than you’d expect. It’s a matte gold, which I always think ups the sophistication. It’s on the smaller side and perfect for a bedside table or corner of a vanity. The top holds several small items and the bottom can hold several bangles."—Dr A.
