I love Medaglia D'oro coffee cans. I love the colors and the style. To make an instant table decoration or lovely gift, simply take a small poinsettia and put it, nursery pot and all, into a coffee can. If your plant sits too low in the can, put something in the bottom to raise it up. You can use inverted, plastic storage containers, or I often use a couple of Potrisers.
I bought this small poinsettia at a local nursery and it was actually cheaper there, than in a local big box store. If I have a choice I will always try to buy my plants at a nursery. Not only is the plant selection better, the chances that you'll take home a healthy, robust plant are vastly increased.
How to pick and care for your poinsettia.
