ACCESSORIES

Sbriciola Bread Cutting Board

Corral bread crumbs easily with this cutting board from Alessi. As you slice bread, crumbs fall between the slats into the tray below, which then pulls out for quick cleaning. Designed by Anna and Gian Franco Gasparini, the very same couple who designed the Milky Way Minor Cheese Knife Set. If you know someone serious about their bread and cheese, you might consider either (or both, if you’re feeling generous) as a good gift idea.

Cafino Coffee Maker

No filter bag needed for this coffee maker. The Cafino has a double stainless steel mesh sieve that fits into a heat resistant borosilicate glass cylinder. Simply place your ground coffee beans into the sieve, pour boiled water, and voilĂ , you have coffee. It’s quite similar to the metal Kone Coffee Filter used with the Chemex Coffeemaker, yet in a more familiar coffee press silhouette.

Classic Games Set

Let the games begin, or rather, que les Jeux commencent*! Dominoes, Chess, Pick-Up Sticks, and Checkers. The four classics all pack up neatly in this box that you can take on the go- the chess board is on the bottom of the box and the checker board is on the bottom of the lid. Could be a good thing to have on hand for your next road trip, or maybe just for those lazy summer days outside (of which you’ll have plenty, right?).

Eva Solo Grill Globe

Snazzy, isn’t it? While the price is significantly higher than a charcoal grill you’ll find at your local store (say, a Weber Kettle Grill for $99), it does look significantly nicer… though, I suppose it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth 460 bucks more. Yes? No?

Terracotta Planters

Maybe you’re too lazy to lug back heavy planters from your local plant nursery. Or, even worse, maybe you’ve gone there only to find that they don’t have quite the right thing. Well, it’s your lucky day, as these planters are perfect- square, plain terracotta, for pretty good prices (+$5 flat fee shipping). Note: the tallest is 22″h, so they’re not huge, but they are good sizes for medium plants.
