While traditional snow globes include wintry items like snowmen, Christmas characters, or cityscapes, you can also get scenes for the warmer weather. Lately we've been in love with this trendy line of summery snow globes from West Elm that feature fun, tropical items.

Unlike usual snow globes, these colorful globes come with glitter. You can choose between a flamingo, rainbow, gold armadillo, love birds, or a miniature popsicle. A quick shake creates a flurry of glitter that's oddly soothing to watch.

Not to be outdone in kitschy houseware, Firebox also has their own version of a flamingo snow globe that's in all pink.
