Hanging glass terrariums

Around Chinese New Year, it's customary to hang bright and cheerful paper lanterns. Although you certainly can go that route, we think these hanging glass terrariums (cb2.com, $7) are an inspired take on a classic tradition. They're a stunning blend of modern and classic that your friends and family are sure to admire.

In China, the cherry blossom is the first flower to bloom in spring and is therefore considered a symbol of new beginnings. So why not start your mornings with a nice cup of tea from this blue cherry blossom yixing tea set (teavana.com, $45)? It's made of yixing clay and will actually absorb the flavour of your favourite tea. And if you aren't much of a tea drinker, it still makes for a lovely piece of decor.
