In this second installment of our Holiday Gift Guides, here is a selection of locally and sustainably made kitchen and tabletop products that are beautifully designed and crafted so you can go from farm to table in style.
Left: Turned wood bowls in Bay Laurel from OJA Design come in assorted sizes.
Right: Hudson Cutting Boards in walnut from Jacob May Design are available in three sizes.
Left: Get multiple cups of delicious coffee in one pour over brew with Ebb reusable coffee filters from GDS Cloth Goods. Made of 100% certified USA grown organic cotton, they’re available for a variety of brewing methods including No.2 & No.4 brewers, Hario V60, Chemex, and Kalita Wave.
Right: The Studio Mug from Heath Ceramics is the perfect mug for any morning routine. Originally designed in the 1940s by Edith Heath, the charming low handle is a testament to her unique design vision. Glazed here in matte Cranberry—a limited edition glaze from their Winter Seasonal collection.
Left: The Orkney Linen Kitchen Must-Haves set from Rough Linen includes four items: one square Bread Bag, two Tea Towels, and one Half Apron, all in their heavyweight textured Orkney linen in a choice of seven colors. Linen stays fresher because it dries quickly and is inherently anti-microbial, which is particularly useful in the kitchen.
Right: Hand-dyed Shibori Kitchen Towels from Equipe are versatile and multi-functional. They’re large enough to use as lap covering napkin or produce wrap, and pretty enough to wear as a scarf.
Left: Bring potluck favorites in the newly redesigned reusable Plat Casserole Tote from Aplat. With a wider opening, it’s easy to load in rectangle casseroles, baking sheets, and pans, spill-free. Slide your gourmet creation into the patented design to keep everything horizontal and upright while on the go. The preshrunk double-layer organic cotton canvas is sturdy enough for a cast-iron skillet, plus its machine washable.
Right: The Jack Bowl from Jered’s Pottery is part of their California Line. This bowl is big, open and generous, just like Jered’s son Jack. It’s the perfect bowl for ramen, pho, hearty stews and large salads. It’s handmade out of California clay, and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
Left: Each of the wabi-sabi inspired Glazed Yunomi Cups in porcelain from Tracey Kessler of TKID is one of a kind.
Right: Carved Stoneware Jars from Len Carella shown with and without a leather knot on top.
Left: Plates and bowls from the Sierra Line in assorted glazes by MMclay. This line was designed with a rustic farmhouse dining experience in mind. It features a playful bright orange, rust-like clay body that brings out the best of their glaze color palette. The exterior circular pattern is beautifully emphasized by orange and white highlights on the light brown stoneware.
Right: The Stag Lee Apron by Stagger Lee Goods is made with 10oz Canvas Chambray. Made to last with copper rivets at stress points, double stitched pockets, an upper box pocket with pen slot, lower four panel pocket, veg tan 6oz leather straps, and copper buttons anchoring removable straps.
Left: In the Profile Bottle Opener from Fire Road, honest materials and modern design coalesce to create a uniquely satisfying way to open a beverage. Whether you choose the cool Carrara marble or warm wood handle, both will feel incredible in your hands and look elegant on your countertop. Inspired by the classic dovetail joint, it’s the perfect modern gift that functions beautifully.
Right: The Wagner Wine Bottle Carrier from Oxgut Hose Co. is handmade from genuine retired fire hose salvaged from US fire departments. It fits both standard bottles of wine and most of the larger craft beer bottles.
Left: In the Sixie Self Watering Seed Pot from Orta, porous terracotta wicks water from the reservoir to give seedlings perfect moisture. Plants pop out for easy transplant. Reuse your seed pot for a lifetime.
Right: Coastal Blue Baskets from Woven Grey are handcrafted from a heavy 100% natural, sustainable cotton cord and sewn in a coiling method that results in a flexible textile that is stiff enough to hold its shape. Beautiful on the tabletop, the Coastal Collection is stitched in ocean blue and finished off with a touch of California gold sunshine. Generously sized in round or oval.
