Heart Stumps

Earrings, pushpins, and other small trinkets are easy to misplace. Heart Stumps, hollow birch or cherry wood tubes held closed by an elastic band, are the perfect solution. Each designed tube (especially the kokeshi dolls) looks like a knickknack on its own, but inside hides whatever treasures you want to keep together in one place. Fill the stump with candy or other goodies to give to someone as a surprise gift–the aspen and birch snowman in particular makes such a cute Christmas present!

$5–$12, available at Shop Toast, 3434 Waialae Ave. Ste. 3, open Mon., Wed., Fri. and Sat., noon–6pm, [shoptoast.com], 447-9233
