Believe it or not, there's a reason a watering can is a better way to tend to your plants than the pitcher you borrowed from the kitchen. The long spout—which points up on Eva Solo's Aquastar for easier storage—produces a calm, even flow that can be directed exactly where the water's needed. And they hold a lot more H2O (in this case, two liters), so you don't need to keep running back to the spigot.

Besides, who says everything in your home can't be a well-designed object of beauty? The Aquastar looks like it could just as easily double as a carafe on your dining table, and at just north of $40, you just might want to use it as a conversation piece and a watering can.
