Bee House Salt Box
If you really love your foodie friends, or if you’re a fellow foodie yourself, this salt cellar is one of the most handy gifts you can give. In my years of cooking it’s become almost annoying to crack fresh salt or shake it out of the box or shaker. It’s so much easier to grab straight from a container that sits right by my stove and toss it in as I’m cooking. It also makes it easier to eye how much using AND it’s easier to scoop up a tsp or two. This salt cellar looks cute on your counter top and keeps your salt fresh and free from moisture!

NerdChef Steel Stone Pizza
This was probably one of the best things I found while researching for this post! We frequently make our own pizzas at home and we LOVE the charred fire roasted crust. Who knew all we needed was a stone pizza slab for our oven! I always mention buying a pizza oven for the backyard once we buy a home but we no longer have to wait! It’s easy to handle with the two corner holes, it’s unbreakable (literally) and also works great for making ice cream! Just use dry ice and you can make your own rolled insta-worthy ice cream at home.
