as a recovering alcoholic it would be nice to see a host/hostess gift guide not related to alcohol... and within a reasonable price range.

I displayed it on my wall for a couple of years but had to sell it for financial reasons. I dream of it almost every day. here's a pic~

that's how flatware is stored in restaurants. You'd need removable compartments so they could be cleaned easily and to not care about your forks getting banged up.

Yes, the color palette is nice. That bookcase looks strange there, the table is too small and the chairs look like they belong in a school lunchroom. Very nice looking room at first glance though.
