Serving Trays by Urbancase

No serving trays? Good, because now you have an excuse to buy one or two of Darin Montgomery’s Serving Trays. Made from FSC certified solid domestic maple, each tray is hand finished with food safe oil/wax. Subtle curved edges provide a functional handle while also adding to the beauty of the simple design. Your tea (or snack) time just became more special.

Chamfer Serving Boards

When you need to dress up your dinner spread, you can’t go wrong with one of these Chamfer Serving Boards. The ebony marble or clear crystal glass are heavy and luxe, which means you could put cheap crackers and cheese on them and they’d still look nice (though you would never do that, would you?). The sloped edges look sharp, and have the added benefit of easy lifting from the table.

Sheepopco Popcorn Bowl

See that little side bit on this Sheepopco Popcorn Bowl? That’s what you get to eat, because the rest is mine. Or, okay, I’ll share, but let’s do the fun thing and mix something with the plain popcorn for the right sweet-and-salty pairing. That’ll make movie nights all the more fun. Two bowls are included in the pack; one standard popcorn bag will fill both.

Naturally Cooling Ceramic Wine Cooler

When you’re drinking rosé or white wine, do you really want to deal with ice and buckets? Nope. Get yourself this Ceramic Wine Cooler from Magisso and then pat yourself on the back for making chilled drinks that much easier. Soak the cooler in cold water for just a few minutes, then let the natural evaporation process keep your bottle perfectly chilled for 2 to 4 hours, no ice necessary. A glazed base prevents water rings. Smart, right? It does the trick; I own one myself and couldn’t be more pleased (unless it somehow opened the bottle of wine for me, of course).

Indigo Splatter Ceramics by Chris Earl

An indigo splattered coffee cup is just what your tea or coffee would like to live in (however briefly) before you sip/gulp/slurp it down. Los Angeles-based designer Chris Earl is the man with the blue paint brush, and he splatters indigo glaze across his hand-thrown tumblers, coffee cups and bowls with equal enthusiasm.

Jackson Pollock Table Textiles

Do you find these Jackson Pollock Table Textiles amusing? Those of us with any interest in art history may be a tiny bit offended (eating on a likeness of a Pollock painting? Gasp!), yet the pragmatic side of us must admit his art could hide a multitude of dining sins, thus making these textiles very… convenient.

Patina Bottle Opener

A beautiful bottle opener? In this case, it’s true. Cofield’s bottle openers are solid brass with three available patina finishes. A polished edge sets off the patina nicely, and somewhat gives an illusion of inset stone. Now, the hard part will be deciding which patina you prefer- do you like the Polychrome, Turquoise, or Black best? Be sure to take a look at Cofield’s Brass Clocks too, which have the same patina treatment.

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.

O Corkscrew

Simplicity at its best, designer Athanasios Babalis reimagined the corkscrew to sidestep all the extraneous design elements in favor of pure function and form. The O Corkscrew requires only a twist and pull. The bronze and stainless steel will look right at home next to all your fancy bottles of wine and holiday fare, so feel free to leave it out to make imbibing that much easier, and possibly more delightful.

15.0% Ice Cream Spoon

Before you roll your eyes at a $45 spoon, you need to know this is a very special spoon, for ice cream. It uses your body heat to cut through your frozen favorite flavor, which makes your “scooping experience” effortless. The solid aluminum spoon has a thermal conductivity of 237 W/mK (watts per meter kelvin), so you’ll be slicing through your mint chocolate chip/vanilla/rocky road with ease, like a ice-cream-eating ninja.

RBT Barware

Hmm, this set of barware from RBT is sure worth a second glance. Take a look at the collection. There’s an aerator with faceted acrylic top, a decanter made of borosilicate glass, a tabletop corkscrew (for the uncoordinated-yet-stylish amongst us?), a metal Wing Corkscrew, and more. All feature the signature black and gold color scheme, which keeps your bar area looking sharp. You’ll look like you know what you’re doing, even when you don’t.

Pebble Cheese Board and Accessories

If you go completley bonkers over cheese, you’ll look way less crazy if you eat your fromage (said with a French accent) on something as sleek as the Pebble Cheese Board. Bonus sophistication points if you use the accompanying accessories to shovel that precious Gouda and Gruyère into that mouth of yours, as the curves on the black cutting utensils are elegant and the silicone handles ensure a good grip and safe delivery. And, yes, of course, any (or all) of the pieces could be a good gift for your favorite turophile as well. Be sure to check out the Craft Salt and Pepper Cellars and Shakers by Simon Legald as well.

Duo Coffee Steeper

More coffee paraphernalia for your consideration… The Duo Coffee Steeper features two chambers to produce the the richness of immersion brewing but with a cleaner taste. Your hot water and coffee steeps in the upper chamber, then once your brew reaches the right strength, you twist the silicone center to let it flow through 2 stainless steel filters into the lower carafe. Twist it again and you’ve locked the chamber for pouring from the spout. Pretty easy, and relatively compact- it may even be a good option to bring with you on your travels, if you’re picky about your coffee.
