Once in a while, when it comes to improving our home spaces, it’s nice to put down the hammer and paint brush and just go shopping! The lot of us here at HomeJelly has recently stumbled into Dot & Bo’s virtual shop and, with a light pocketbook as inspiration, picked out our five under twenty-five favies.

The requirement?

Each item had to be a both of unique and utilitarian. Why not ask your decor and home goods to do double duty? So, without further adieu…here’s our right-from-our-computer, window shopping top fives!

#1: Go Nuts Rainbow Bowls – Set of 8, Price: $19.99 (limited sale)

Besides food, these bowls can stand in as succulent or tea light holders, stacked in your kitchen to add a collection of color, or they can be DIY’d – simply drill a hole through all the bottoms, then flip each bowl upside down, run a string and thread all eight using knots to secure and separate. You’ve got yourself a unique hanging bowls sculpture!

#2: Read to the Hand Book Holder – Price: $19.99

There really isn’t any room that doesn’t need a hook or two…why not install a couple that are as cute as these? What’s great about these droplets is that with or without a thing to hang, they still add an artistic touch to any wall, nook, or entryway.

#4: Mini Finger Food Plates/Wine Glass Toppers – Set of 4 – Price: $19.99

These aren’t only useful, they’re perfect conversation starters for your next cocktail or dinner party – we guarantee it! Additionally, we’ve thought of a flipping awesome way to use this product…flip it! Upside-down and empty, you can insert flameless tea lights under each glass, then place them on a shelf as a group. Bright.
