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

    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 pot holder will still look good.


    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 three from Amazon for $13.99.

    5. A stoneware bowl with two bamboo salad hands that'll make you want to eat more salads for dinner just so this doesn't have to stay tucked away in your cabinet.


    Promising review: "This is a gorgeous bowl. It's a very good size for family size salad or soup. I washed in dishwasher, and the colors are still vibrant. It's a good weight for bowl as it is not too heavy or light." —janelle

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    6. A set of stemless goblets – you'll be blushing to send your friends a "Wine and movie night at my place?" text so these glasses can be the center of attention.

    TJ Maxx

    Get a set of four from TJ Maxx for $19.99.

    7. A set of unbreakable plates made of wheat straw (so they're degradable and eco-friendly).


    Plus, they're dishwasher and microwave safe!

    Promising review: "Overall, these are fantastic plates! These are the best faux plastic plates I've purchased. There was no funky smell, and they have held up time and time again in the dishwasher and microwave. They are also incredible easy to hand wash. The plates are virtually non-stick. Melted cheese couldn't even bond to these little BPA free beasts. Great price. Great product. Great purchase." —Alison and or Grant Meyer

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $18.29.

    8. A set of beechwood measuring spoons you'll find are a ~hoot~ every time you take them out to cook with.


    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. Believe it or not, these would make a great gift to someone who enjoys a more natural approach when cooking. I have them hanging up in the kitchen. They're too beautiful to even put in a drawer." —KC

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in five different designs).

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


    Promising review: "I love these bowls. They're not just for pasta. They are great for salad or soup as well. They're the perfect size! I bought four but am thinking of ordering four more. The inside is floral and the outside is dots. Together it looks lovely. —Teacherstonack

    Get a set of four from Walmart for $23.52.

    10. A stainless steel knife set you'll love a bunch because they're out of this world compared to your current boring knives. No matter what your style is, you have to admit these knives are sharp.

    Promising review (for cosmos): "This is a great set of knives! The graphics are top notch, and the performance is also surprisingly good. They're made of quality steel with a great edge that appears will hold up to honing and sharpening. The handles are ok—doubt they're full tang, but I'm very satisfied for the price point. They definitely draw the eye!!"— Colin Beech

    Get the roses set from Amazon for $24.97 or the cosmos set from Amazon for $49.95.

    11. A cake stand to take your baking masterpiece up a notch.

    13. A two-in-one strainer and bowl set that's incredibly functional – all you have to do is tip the bowl to get the water out.


    Promising review: "This is a really handy colander set once I figured out how to use it. Unfortunately, there were no instructions or papers with it. Just tilting the bottom bowl will enable the water to drain out nicely. We use it all the time." —TJ

    Get it from Amazon for $8.59 (available in pink and green).

    14. A silverware set to make you feel like you're tasting the rainbow when you eat...without, you know, actually eating the rainbow.


    Promising review: "Wow. I am amazed by this flat ware. At first, I thought after a few times in the dishwasher the color would come off or look different. Not the case. It looks really good, super different and elegant and modern at the same time. They are pretty heavy and good to hold. I get compliments all the time when I have friends over for dinner. I love it!!! I would highly recommend." —Eva

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $37.99.

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


    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 $12.12+ (available in five sizes).

    21. A glass storage container to make bringing your lunch to work a little more exciting. Say goodbye to your sad desk lunch!

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


    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 $26.99.

    23. A set of plastic tumblers to make it ~suc~ less when your party guests accidentally spill a drink because at least with these cuties you won't get glass all over the ground.


    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 $10.99.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $9.93 (available in lavender, navy, and teal).

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $9.89+ (available in cat and panda).

    26. 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.


    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 seven colors).

    27. A chip and dip plate with a separate area specifically for the dip so you can get the right chip to dip ratio every time. Trust me, this is important.


    The plate is dishwasher safe.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $28.

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


    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

They're very sturdy and attractive. I've washed the little ones daily in the dishwasher for over a year now, and they still are bright and shiny with no sign of wear. They're are worth the money!" —Tori Kelley, Ph.D.
