1. A wall-mountable mixer attachment organizer, because your fave stand mixer attachments are sooo helpful, but also so bulky that they pose a very unique storage struggle.
This Texas-based small business stocks lots of helpful kitchen products, including plenty of other accessories for your prized KitchenAid mixer.
Promising review: "The second handy item from this seller that I’m loving! For years now, my mixer heads have taken up valuable space in my cabinet and when you have limited space, you look for solutions. This gadget is now installed under a cabinet out of the way. I think it actually looks like a bit of kitchen sculpture. A clever solution to keep clutter at bay!" —esmosmom
Get it from 3DHomeSolution on Etsy for $12 (available in three colors and with your choice of Command strips or wood screws for mounting). You can also get a version that just holds a single attachment here.
2. A truly amazing 3D-printed floating coffee sculpture that's the monument your morning caffeine fix deserves in its honor, since you pretty much couldn't function without it. Also, this piece will give your kitchen a Disney World-level of whimsy, which is always a plus.
This Atlanta-based small business stocks so many super creative 3D-printed home goods!
Promising review: "Absolutely in love with my floating coffee mug sculpture. I made a display to show it off. Topic of discussion at my house" —Sheila
3. A precious little glass cup with a whimsical animal face that will reveal itself even more clearly when you add your favorite beverage. The narwhal in particular has me squealing from cuteness.
4. A beyond clever hanging stemware rack, because the only thing better than a chandelier is a chandelier consisting of wineglasses. It'll also save a ton of space in your cabinets and on your shelves!
5. A Golden Girls clean/dirty dishwasher magnet that'll have all your housemates saying ~thank you for being a friend~ for sparing them the eternal struggle of whether or not it's okay for them to put their gross cereal bowl in the machine.
6. An heirloom-worthy cutting board custom engraved with a favorite family recipe, so you'll never forget the secret ingredient to your great-grandma's Bolognese again.
Promising review: "I surprised my mom and three siblings with cutting boards and purchased one for myself. The service was excellent and communication outstanding. They keep you informed every step of the way. I was practically in tears. It’s so beautiful! Pictures don’t do justice to this beautiful piece!" —nieciep53
7. A standout apron with a roomy front pocket that's so pretty, I wouldn't be surprised if it earned you your own cooking show. So what if you can barely boil water? You'll *look* like a top chef in this.
It's from a Black woman-owned shop specializing in fabric home goods in African-inspired prints.
Promising review: "This apron is absolutely beautiful! I searched for weeks to find an apron to replace my old one and this one looks even better in person. Well worth the money." —makeba lavan
8. A super useful washable, reusable, cotton-blend towel made to do (and excel at) one very specific job. Namely, absorb all the grease from your bacon with less waste than just using a paper towel.
Just use it to blot bacon like you would a normal paper towel, then soak it in hot water and degreasing dish soap and toss it in the washer to be used again. This genius creation is from a woman-owned, Colorado-based shop that makes fabric alternatives to all sorts of disposable household products and donates 1% of proceeds to Climate Emergency Fund.
Promising review: "OK, I'm really impressed! I thought it might be inconvenient compared with paper, but I am sooo amazed! It soaked up the bacon and left it perfect (no paper bits). Super easy to wash with a bit of dish soap by hand and toss it in the dishwasher. I'm telling all my friends! Excellent shop, highly recommend!" —Julie
9. An Instagram-worthy set of Monstera-shaped recycled felt trivets for anything you don't want to ~leaf~ directly on your precious table.
10. A ~fantastically~ funny unicorn horn for your KitchenAid mixer that should win every design award known to man (and mythological equine), because it's pretty much the only thing that could make your favorite kitchen gadget better.
11. An iconic Schitt's Creek quote dish towel ideal for wiping up spilled meadow harvest smoothies (probably best you didn't drink it) or bits of cheese you forgot to fold in.
12. A special "bib" for your splashy faucet, because *everyone* drips water at least a bit when they wash their hands or dishes — you're not doing it wrong. Especially if you live in an NYC apartment with a very strange water pressure-to-sink-basin ratio like I do.
It's from an Oregon-based small business, and you can also message the seller for a custom design.
Promising review: "LOVE these splash catchers! They save me from having to chase the puddles that form around the base of our faucet before they start creeping over the counter. So reasonably priced, made well with neatly finished edges, and packaged with gift-ready care. Highly recommended!" —Alina
13. A vintage cheese knife hand-stamped with a sweet and punny phrase that would make an adorable (and only slightly ~cheesy~) gift to a loved one or just to your own cheese board collection.
This Pennsylvania-based shop can customize any order!
Promising review "These are the cutest cheese knives ever! Bought these as an engagement gift for a friend who is always bringing the cheese boards to every get together. I love the vintage look and they even came with instructions on how to properly take care of them. Highly recommend these!!!" —Jessica Lauser
16. A genius butter dish and grip set that'll put your butter knife out of business. Just pop the stick straight onto the grip and spread away for hassle-free pan greasing.
It's dishwasher safe and from a Miami-based small business!
Promising review: "Absolutely perfect. It holds a whole stick of butter and the butter stays in place — unlike some of the other products on the market that are supposed to serve the same purpose." —Michelle
17. A custom wooden sign to make your kitchen feel like an old-school diner and remind everyone who makes the best meals in town.
This Escanaba, Michigan-based shop makes lots of cool wooden signs!
Promising review: "The personal touch my kitchen needed to make a big statement!! I love it! Light enough to place on kitchen door with sticky tape." —Eliamar Nguyen
18. A set of sweet floral teaspoons that'll take you back to your childhood tea parties every time you dreamily stir in your sugar.
This Georgia-based small business stocks lots of cute goodies, from flatware to gifts to beauty products to accessories.
Promising review: "These spooons are absolutely delightful. They're small and dainty, but they weigh quite a lot, so they seem very durable. They're so cute! Thank you!" —Clara Clara
19. A handy dandy measurement conversion magnet, because keeping these basics conveniently in sight is muchhhh better than having to Google them every five minutes.
This Denver-based shop also sells magnetic charts for other useful adulting info, like laundry direction symbols!
Promising review: "Lovely hand written note came with the magnet. Magnet is exactly as described and a handy addition to my kitchen!" —Carla
20. A beautiful and classic embossed rolling pin so you can form pretty patterns on all your cookie creations. Because everything is better in floral print, and why should desserts be any exception?
This Poland-based shop makes so many cool embossed rolling pins featuring all kinds of patterns and shapes!
Promising review: "Perfect — the rolling pin is exactly as described and even comes with a recipe! I would recommend this item; my friend is going to love it." —Ageela Imamdin
21. An ~inconceivably~ hilarious decal for your Instant Pot to warn your family members what's coming. Unlike revenge, it'll be a dish best served hot.
22. A super eye-catching rough stone soap dispenser that'll look oh-so-posh against your marble countertops for a kitchen aesthetic that totally rocks.
Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this!! So unique and instantly upgrades my bathroom counter! Chose sodalite for its properties and it looks beautiful as well. It holds a very small amount of soap. Such a unique product and I hope to buy more for my other bathrooms!!" —ksohpank
23. A set of instantly downloadable fruit and veggie art prints to inject your walls with a healthy dose of vitamin C ("C" for "cute," that is).
25. A handy dandy stone and aluminum dish brush and sponge holder to let your cleaning must-haves drip dry in a way that actually looks — *gasp* — stylish. Now that's something you wont take for ~granite~.
This shop is based in New Hampshire and specializes in handmade kitchen and home goods made with natural stones.
Promising review: "A perfect fit behind the sink! I am slowly getting rid unnecessary plastics in my household and I wanted something that would keep the wooden brushes and sponges propped up so they're not sitting in their own drippy water. Not only is this SUPER functional, it is beautiful as well." —Jamy Rygula
