Match safes (vestas) are becoming a very popular collectible. One can find truly beautiful and artistic creations. There are affordable ones that are great to start with, or to get a loved one involved. Of course, there are match safes that are solid gold, are embellished with precious stones, and have interesting shapes and..... well, you can find something for everybody and practically every budget. I do warn you that it can become habit forming! Especially easy since they take up very little room!
