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.
9) Small silver serving pieces like a cake server, jelly spoons or pickle forks. They’re always needed for a fancy dinner party.
8) Tall cut glass vase for the bouquet of flowers that arrives unexpectedly.
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.
2) Printed kitchen towels from the 1950s. And these towels can be used, too.
And along with a collectible, the best thing to give the collectors on your gift list …
