$110 / $48

Always keeping a kettle going for this beautiful, matte Bright Angle ceramic teapot and matching mug.


Our favorite maple French rolling pin, a holiday cookie must have.


This hammered copper moscow mule gift set is the perfect beverage accompaniment for a special sip this season. If we’re drinking inside, might as well be copper.


A curvaceous, recycled glass decanter you might just want to keep for yourself.


For tables of any size, this gorgeous, handcrafted table runner is perfect for your next meal.

$32 / $48

Reusable placemats will always have a seat at the table. These recycled rubber mats are not your usual holiday dinnerware. Love a speckletone. They pair nicely with these round rubber coasters.

$125 / $40 / $32 

My aspirational gold grid apron. Leaning fully into this too-cute kitchen uniform from MINNA. Not to mention the matching oven mitt and pot holder? Don’t mind me, just cooking in my all gold grid everything.


Swooning over this round, cherry wood cutting board. An heirloom item for every occasion. This is a perfect gift for anyone slicing and dicing this year or next.


Everyone who eats needs a copy of Samin Nosrat’s Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Your in depth guide to cooking with flavor. Beautifully illustrated by Wendy Macnaughton.

$28 / $38

I want this triangle tea towel in moss on every surface of my home. Keeping it reasonable with just a couple. Maybe. Add in this monotone Georgia block print napkin set and you will have all your kitchen linen fantasies come true.

$30 / $12

Finally found the heirloom cloud pink napkin rings I can hold onto indefinitely. Handwoven with sisal and sweetgrass fibers, each ring is unique in design and a thoughtful addition to your linens. Try these stone washed blush napkins for a perfect match.

$28 / $24

The Aplat collection will fulfill all your sustainable storage needs. I am enamoured with this cotton, poche bag for keeping produce and grains fresh and covering all my bowls with this drawstring cotton bowl cover from here on out. Protect that precious rising dough y’all.

$195 / $50

My ultimate must have kitchen item–a cast iron skillet. This 12” FINEX pan is my everyday workhorse. A true heirloom emblem for every home cook. The chefs in your life will thank you endlessly. (The cast iron cleaning kit will also come in handy.)


The salad bowl of my dreams. Handcrafted bamboo I can fill to the brim with plantiful eats this holiday. A beautiful addition to any table.


Hand carved wooden serving spoons you will want to eat everything with. Who needs silverware?


This ice inspired porcelain cylinder I want to dive into. Perfect for showing off those hand carved serving spoons in a utensil vase.


Didn’t know I was desperately missing this denim wine tote. Surely the soon-to-be most used kitchen item we have on hand.


Dry storage and leftovers will have it made in these minimal, matte storage containers no cabinet should be without.


Now is the time to get your friends and family into fermenting. There’s never a bad time though, truly. Sandor Katz’s The Art of Fermentation is the classic guide any home cook can get started with.

$61 / $98

A rectilinear bamboo cutting board set because one can never have too many cutting boards. Small kitchen? This square Budapest chef’s board is just the right block.
