Practical yet unique gifts always make a good choice - especially around the busy holiday season - which is why we love this fat tray, serving tray and container combo by Alessi. Designer Koskinen Harri created this bamboo wood box, which boasts a lid that doubles as a serving tray. Inside you'll find an organized storage space for plates, cutlery, napkins, or whatever you're serving your guests. The interior divider can be moved to accommodate larger plates, or to make room for all your serving essentials. Tea time has never been so easy, with your assortment of tea, cups, saucers and spoons, jam, sugar and milk, all in one easy spot. The lid-tray is light and resistant to typical tea time debauchery (spilled milk is really nothing to cry over with this durable finish). If tea time doesn't roll around often enough to make good use of this gift, try this tray / container for snacks, desserts, coffee or cocktails. Retail price is $146. Get the fat tray, tray / container at Alessi.

Put your pastry desserts on a deserving pedestal, with the Great White 3-tier pastry stand by Pottery Barn. This dessert server makes a great gift for those who love to host and bake alike. This tiered stand is executed in durable porcelain and finished in pure white glaze. Three large levels let you arrange your desserts for all to see, sample and swoon over. At the center, a broad, round stem done in chrome anchors the piece while allowing you to pass it easily around the table. In a completely different way but just as beautifully, use the plate to display flowers, candles, seashells, the options are endless. The design is simple, which bodes well for two reasons: it won't overshadow your display, and it works beautifully with your existing dinnerware or as part of a complete Great White Collection.
