Really want to wow an art lover? Designer Alvar Aalto is known for his free form vases, and this one is actually on display at the MoMA. Fortunately, it's also sold at the MoMA Design Store, which means you can give a loved one a museum-worthy work of art that sure beats the usual framed poster. The vase's green shade lends the piece a nostalgic feel, but its unusual wavy shape keeps it from looking like it came from your grandmother's house. The item comes in small and large sizes, so it can fit in the tiniest studio—and with a tiny budget.
