Balance Salt and Pepper Set
You've probably seen a zen garden before, whether in full size or small for your desk, they are all about calming the mind and sharpening focus. Similar to a zen garden are balancing stones that are stacked to create a similar effect, it takes time and it relaxes and helps you focus. Why are we going there? Easy, this is inspired by stacking stones, except they are made to easily stack, taking the balancing act out of the equation. 3 stone shaped containers, the top white one is for salt, the middle dark gray one is for pepper and the bottom one is for a dipping sauce like soy. It's already beautiful as it is, but the fact that the stones have a different surface treatment, one is glazed and glossy, one is untreated and matt – is just another lovely feature to make this salt and pepper set even more special.

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.
