1.

A splurge-worthy salt and pepper shaker set – you might think it should belong in a modern art museum rather than on your kitchen counter.


amazon.com

Promising review: “These are worth the extra money. I’ve wanted these salt and pepper shakers for a long time, and I finally splurged on them. They are easy to use and have multiple options for grinding size. The texture is smooth and almost velvety. They feel nice when holding them and clean easily.” —Olive12345

2.

A floral pot holder to help your cooking really ~bloom~. And if it doesn’t, at least your potholder will still look good.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are beautiful potholders that are flexible and not bulky. These standard size items are my preferred choice, as they are not bulky and they provide the necessary protection for handling hot pots. They also look great in my kitchen!” —Tsan

Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.99.

3.

A marble rolling pin that comes with a wood cradle to keep it in place when you’re not using it.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this rolling pin. It makes rolling a crust so much easier, and since the marble stays cold, the dough doesn’t tend to overheat from being worked. Also, the weight of the pin means that I don’t have to exert much force to use it.” —megomole

Get it from Amazon for $21.01.

4.

A pitcher to prove that keeping water cold doesn’t have to be a boring, serious job for clear pitchers only. Any (pitcher) can do it.

A set of beechwood measuring spoons you’ll find are a ~hoot~ when you take them out to cook with.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are not only great, but they also have a beautiful design and a very natural feeling because they’re made of wood.

They’re too beautiful to even put in a drawer.” —KC

A set of pasta bowls because we all know that it really is all about the pasta.


Walmart

Urban Outfitters

Promising review: “You can’t beat this set for the price. They do require some extra care and we’ve managed a few scrapes and dings in the nonstick coating, but so far nothing that makes them unusable. The paint has proven to be surprisingly durable, and I love the color. (I got the teal set). I’ve had these around six months, and so far no major complaints.” —Shadow

Get it from Amazon for $119.99 (available in seven colors).

18.

Some bamboo utensils that’ll be a bright spot in your kitchen. After all, you’re allowed to have items that are just nice to look at (although these are also, of course, incredibly useful).

A wine decanter – you’ll feel like you’re dining at a five-star restaurant every time you use it. Also, it will make that cheap bottle you bought seem not as cheap.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is one very cool decanter. It not only does the job, but it looks good doing it! We were served in a similar decanter at a 5-star restaurant in Argentina, and I started looking for one on our return. Great value for the price. And a great way to impress friends while enjoying a great bottle of wine. Like all similar decanters, it’s a bit hard to clean, so you will need both flexible soft brushes and a decanter stand. I highly recommend this decanter.” —Rodan

Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

24.

An insulated travel mug that the barista will probably compliment you on when you bring it to your favorite coffee shop.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love these mugs so much that I’ve bought two of them. They keep hot drinks very hot for several hours (in fact, it’s easy to burn yourself if you’re expecting your drink to have cooled down at all). The colors are beautiful (I have the peach and navy ones), and I always get compliments when I use them. The only complaint I have is that if you’re holding it by the handle, you have to do so in your left hand because of the way the lid screws on. That’s only a minor inconvenience, and I love it so much that I still give it 5 stars.” —Dkx

Get it from Amazon for $17.93+ (available in seven styoles).

25.

A set of plastic tumblers to make it ~suc~ less when one of your party guests accidentally spills a drink – at least with these cuties, you won’t get glass all over the ground.


Amazon

Promising review: “My guests loved these! They are very durable, and the design is so pretty. They’re a much higher quality than I expected for the price.” —Marianne Powers

Get a set of eight from Amazon for $3.74 (available in eight styles).

26.

A utensil holder with a sleek and modern look that won’t clash with whatever else you have going on design-wise.


Amazon

Promising review: “I absolutely love this utensil holder. It’s large, very sturdy, and definitely beautiful to look at. It’s so elegant and simple, completely worth it.” —AmazonBuyer

Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in five styles).

27.

A flower trivet mat meant to protect your tabletop from hot dishes while also acting as super cute wall decor when you’re not using it.


Amazon

Promising review: “I simply love these trivets. I used them as a decoration on my kitchen wall. When needed, I just place them on the table for my hot dishes. They clean in a breeze and the color is great. The price is so reasonable that if I didn’t need them, I still would have bought them. You will not be disappointed with this item.” —redhead

Get a set of three from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 11 colors).

28.

A set of storage tins you can use to store coffee, tea, or any other treats you want to keep close but not stare at all the time.

A serving utensil set to impress all your dinner guests with. They might even think you got these from some high-end store.


Amazon

Promising review: “I LOVE THESE SOOOOOO MUCH! They feel great in your hand and look gorgeous on the table. I’m endlessly complimented on this set. I hand-wash to keep the finish looking new, but the manufacturer says dishwasher (NO LEMON/CITRUS SOAP!) is safe. I use these as my everyday flatware. I’ve had Knork for about 6-months of heavy use, and they look great.” —AliOlyOxenFree

Get it from Amazon for $56.29 (available in copper and matte black).

30.

A butter dish because once you start keeping your butter room temperature, ~holy cow~ will your world change. No more struggling to butter toast ever again.


Amazon

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

31.

And a set of kitchen knives I’m pretty sure were designed to make you actually want to chop vegetable because that’s probably one of the worst parts about cooking (in my opinion, at least).


Anthropologie

Get the set of three from Anthropologie for $28.
