Rivsalt Himalayan Salt & Grater

Gah! It’s a cute Himalayan Salt & Grater set, which is pretty damn adorable. I can see how an overachieving host might want to get one for each guest, but one is more than enough to pass around a table for a special sense of occasion. The grater rests in a beechwood stand, a perfect little companion piece to give the salt a home.

Round Silicone Lids

These silicone lids will make leftovers a snap. Just stick them on any sheet, pan, or bowl, and you’re done- no separate container necessary. That’s music to anyone’s ears, but especially to those of us with a slight case of lazybones around the holidays. They also keep food hot (a small one for your coffee, perhaps?), or can stand in as the top of a saucepan. Get them for yourself, or as a ‘happy holidays’ sort of host/hostess gift. Also available in a rectangular shape.

Duo Server

How to keep your cheese visually separated from your baguette and/or crackers? By reminding your family/guests that the cheese stays on the marble circle dammit(!). But you’re not obsessive compulsive, so you wouldn’t say something like that, and you surely wouldn’t mind a few crumbs encroaching upon your beloved cheese… riiight? Especially when the pairing of a solid walnut cutting board looks so nice against a white or dark marble circle. The parts can be separated and used individually (marble=trivet!).
