If you're looking for gifts that are both functional and beautiful, head straight to Glassery. Their inventory of durable tempered glass and porcelain bottles, jars, and containers would look great in any kitchen.
Glass shakers come in two sizes. They have an ingenious little dispensing mechanism that is much more elegant than the traditional speckled holes.
Colored spice jars on the left, perfect for distinguishing ingredients. Weck canning jars in two sizes on the right.
The Weck jars are perfect for storing Thanksgiving leftovers, canning, or for fashioning your own DIY food gifts, such as Cortido (El Salvadorian Sauerkraut). It's delicious.
The glass flask and tea strainer might be my favorite item though. I bought one for myself a week or so ago, and am now convinced that it will be a staple item in my gift-giving this year. It's well designed, practical, easy to use and clean, and won't break the bank at $15 apiece.
