Bring summer bonfires indoors with this small tabletop fireplace. It runs on isopropyl rubbing alcohol (the same kind in your first-aid kit!), so there’s no need to spend money on hard-to-find fancy fuels or fillers, said TODAY contributor and food expert Alejandra Ramos. It's easy to transport, and the minimalist design will look great anywhere in the house. Place it on your dinner table for an eye-catching centerpiece or on the coffee table as you cuddle up with a book and a glass of wine.
