For the Host With the Most

Hand-carved from natural, food-grade salt in marbled shades of white to rose pink, these lined glasses are a step above your standard shot. With each sip, the glasses lend a savory flavor that’s more nuanced than ordinary table salt and is the perfect complement to fine tequila or mezcal. Best of all, salt is naturally anti-bacterial so clean-up is a snap: Just wipe the glasses clean and store in a dry location. Buy them now at Uncommon Goods.

For the Home Chef

This handy holder makes it a snap to keep necessary kitchen tools — including a tablet or cookbook — within easy reach.
