These bud vases make good presents for gardeners and flower arrangers. They have glass inserts to take a little water, so they can hold small fresh flowers. A simple arrangement of small flowers can look every bit as good as a full-size display.
I think they look good with some stalks of feathery dried grasses too. Some people use them for incense sticks.
Made from attractive hardwood species, they also look good just displayed on a shelf.
