The witty shapes and playful colors say Jonathan Adler, but the 3-for-$24 price tag says Ikea. These ceramic bud vases with groovy multicolored stripes are the real thing, though. Like Prozac for flowers, they're so cheerful that even wilting blooms will have a reason to live. And at this price, you can give both flowers and the vases to put them in (and have enough left over to buy a set for yourself).
$24 at Gracious Home, 1992 Broadway, at 67th St., 212-231-7800, gracioushome.com.
