Head cases

A bit of cheery holiday foliage is always a good gift, whether it’s a blooming poinsettia or few tulip bulbs for winter planting, but the gift that says “welcome!” most of all is a succulent wreath for hanging on the door. They have some nice ones ranging from 7- to 10-inch versions … as well as a gift basket of tulips for the gardener in your life. Wreaths from $49.99; tulip basket $119.99.

When the holidays roll around, so do family members, friends and well-wishers, and you don’t wanna spend all day in the kitchen cooking. So the new Micom rice cooker from Zojirushi makes the perfect gift — even to give to yourself. It will cook and keep warm from 5.5–10 cups of rice for making everything from rice pudding to sushi to some long-grain to slap a little gravy on when you’re feeling peckish.  $192–$209.
