Keyaki Wood Tea Cups

I wonder how well wood conducts heat? I’m tempted to buy these; they look so comfortable to hold, plus, they seem more natural than the ceramic mugs we’re all used to.

“Keyaki wood is a Japanese elm and has been much prized for centuries by Japanese woodworkers for the dramatic and beautiful grain. Each teacup is carved from a single block of wood and has a unique pattern. They are light and wonderful to hold in the hand. Set of 4.”

Swivel Liqueur Glasses

Whether you want or need more play or pleasure when having your drink of choice, these glasses would surely add to rather than detract from the experience. Seems like it could be a good gift as well…

“The shape of the glass enhances the aromatic effects and deep color of the Liqueur, as well as its sensual movement. It makes for a highly playful and pleasurable experience that should not be passed up.”

Fair Share Fountain

Just saw this over at C&M, quite the thing to add some flair to your champagne toast, huh?

“6 champagne glasses, each one a bit smaller than the other, hand made out of Pyrex and each one has a tiny lip so that the champagne will flow over into the next smaller glass and all 6 together hold the content of one standard bottle!”

Pick Your Nose Cups

These cups have certainly been making the rounds on the blog circuit, yet I still find them funny. Might be the perfect thing to take along to a holiday party…

“Each of these photo- realistic paper cups comes emblazoned with a new nose. When you tip your head to take a drink ‘voila’ you get an instant nose job, and a chuckle from the crowd.”

24 12-oz. cups in each pack, evenly divided between male and female

Deception (Cup and Saucer) by chillichilly

This is a rather unique cup and saucer set- I like how the handle looks like part of a pair of scissors, and the fake shadow is interesting as well…

“what you see is not what you get. this cup and saucer set challenges our perception of what is right and false. the deceiving shadow forged on the saucer resonates the beauty and well-proportioned shape of the coffee cup.”

InsideOut Martini Glass, Set of 2

The InsideOut Martini Glasses are available for presale- so now’s the time to put your name down in preparation for all your holiday entertaining (or gift-giving).

“..it creates a wonderful presentation and is a lot better to hold than balancing an overly wide glass filled to the rim on a thin stem…Besides the visual beauty, there is another extremely convincing argument: your drink simply doesn’t warm as fast as it would in a normal martini glass…”

I like these- the two styles manage to compliment each other and make the regular ol’ drinking glass a little more interesting.

“Each glass is decorated with a vintage style goblet design, they’re the modern glasses with a vintage flair. Glasses measure 3″ in diameter and 6″ tall.”

Kotori Sake Serving Set

This set has such nice form; the handle of the pitcher lends a subtle modern feel. It would be an excellent housewarming/wedding gift…

“Like its namesake ‘kotori’ is Japanese for ‘small bird’ this sprightly porcelain sake pitcher stands watch over five small cups. The set, designed by Finland’s Tomi Pelkonen, rests on a thick oak serving tray. SFMOMA exclusive.”
