By Wednesday, December 02, 2009 ,

My very talented friend Katie is owner and curator of Recently, she's been blogging about great holiday gift ideas in easy-on-the-wallet price ranges. She inspired me to put together a list of my own ... with a decided slant toward kitchen and dining accoutrement. So, here's a sampling of things that would make your kitchen or dining room a special spot.

1951 Argentina Seltzer Bottle from Three Potato Four — one of my favorite websites! Would look fabulous on a bar table.

1934 dining chair from Sundance catalog — eight would be great!

Porcelain Mason Jar by Pigeon Toe Ceramics at Reform School — another favorite site.

Rancho Gordo heirloom beans — a must for the foodie in your life.

Handcrafted Dotted Bowls from Orange Lola — this stack looks just about right … for ice cream, soup, dips, lemons …

Diamond pillow cover from Stitch in Dye — perfect backrest for the 1934 dining chair? Yes!

Fair Trade Burlap Buckets by Maya*Made — I want one of these for tossing dirty towels and cloth napkins into before they head to the wash!

Wisconsin Artisan Cheeses and Companions gift box from Fromagination — yum! One of my favorite local shops … ships everywhere!

Yummy, yummy, yummy! Tea towel from Mr. PS etsy shop — so fun!

Milk jug from Keith Brymer Jones @ Horne

Piggy Lunch Bag from Hero Bags — Must. Have. This.

Spouted bowls from Gleena’s etsy shop — elegant and useful.

Happy shopping, -s!

  1. Sarah! What a beautiful assortment. These things are sooooo you. I've loved those chairs for so long. I wish I had more spots for chairs in my house, there's just too many styles I want with not enough "butts" to go 'round. That pillow and seltzer bottle are also going on my list.
