I'm currently on the lookout for different presents for Niece's upcoming bridal shower in early March. This Amazon special caught my eye: a graceful little glass pot and a selection of tea 'flowers', all packed in a bamboo box, for $12.50. That's 62% off -- Wow! (Order two, and you get free shipping.)
