Kovels' Antiques and Collectibles Holiday Gift Suggestions

Every year, antiques and collectibles experts Ralph and Terry Kovel jot down gift ideas specially selected for the collectors on your holiday shopping list. Here’s the Kovels’ 2006 “Top 10” gift list. Check it out to find the perfect gift for collectors—or anyone else—on your holiday list.
10) Glass candlesticks, single or pairs, clear or in mixed colors. Candlesticks dress up a table, help out in a power outage (use candles) and can decorate a mantel for the holidays. Glass Candlesticks
9) Small silver serving pieces like a cake server, jelly spoons or pickle forks. They’re always needed for a fancy dinner party. Silver Serving pieces
8) Tall cut glass vase for the bouquet of flowers that arrives unexpectedly. Cut glass
7) A set of 6 or 8 salad-size plates that can be used for hors d’oeuvres. Look for sets with designs that would appeal to your friend—perhaps flowers or horses.

6) A vintage link bracelet—then add a vintage charm each year.

5) Bookends for a friend who has books stacked in every corner. Since the 1930s, iron, brass, bronze and pottery bookends have been made in every imaginable shape.


4) Covered glass compotes, clear or milk glass. Fill with candy or guest soaps or flower bulbs to be forced.

3) An antique iron trivet to use under hot casseroles or to hang on the wall.
