Rubik’s Cube Mug Needs No Solving

Rubik’s Cube Mug

Not that I would know, but taking apart a Rubik’s Cube and putting it back together again is sure to cause a certain amount of stress in the plastic parts over time. While such an activity may facilitate in the ‘solving’ of the cube, it does nothing for having it stay a cohesive whole during use. If you’re looking for a gift for compulsive ‘cube-solver’, perhaps this Rubik’s Cube Mug will do. While the mug won’t actually need any solving, at least it won’t fall apart in your hands.

Owls Ask Who Would Like Some Salt And Pepper

Grasslands Road Petals Owl Salt And Pepper Set

Collectible salt and pepper shakers have one major flaw: they aren’t grinders. Freshly ground pepper is vastly superior to the pre-ground sawdust that populates store shelves. The solution? Stick the salt and pepper shakers on the shelf and look at them while you grind whole pepper over your meal. While freshly ground pepper may taste better, it usually doesn’t come in an overly cute container. Overly cute, as in cute overload, as in: Grasslands Road Petals Owl Salt And Pepper Set. While the small salt and pepper shaker set won’t maximize the flavor of the meal, it may just be perfect for the owl fanatic on your gift list, allowing them to stare at each other throughout every meal.

Martini Glass Topples, Probably Still Falls Down

Starfrit Gourmet 7-Ounce Double Wall Martini Glass

It’s not too much to ask for a martini glass that doesn’t want to topple over. However when it comes to barware, long stemmed martini glasses are an accident waiting to happen. (Remember, these things are meant to be filled with booze!) Overcoming tradition is not always an easy thing, but if it means less spilled booze, then perhaps it’s not a bad idea to consider a new design. The Starfrit Gourmet 7-Ounce Double Wall Martini Glass provides a stable drinking experience (ahem) by replacing the long stem with a sturdy double-walled trunk. It, of course, won’t eliminate martini-related spillages, but at least it won’t want to topple over when an olive is added to the side.

Mickey Mouse Plate Doesn’t Like It

Sara Rose Disney Mickey Mouse Comic Plate Set of 6 - 11

Ah, dammit! Brussels sprouts again?!? Heh heh.

Apparently Mickey Mouse is very particular about what gets put on his dinner plate. Don’t get the mouse angry; you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. Better stick to the cheese.
