Get Your Gravy On

Bring your gravy to the Thanksgiving table in style.

We hosted Thanksgiving a few years ago and forgot that we didn't have a gravy boat until the guests we're all sitting at the table staring at a mountain of mashed potatoes. Don't let this happen to you.

Here's our suggestions for gravy boats for every budget and style:

Sterling Bling: Tiffany Late Victorian gravy boat for $1,750(!!). Break the bank on this instant heirloom in sterling silver.

Affordable Classic: Martha Stewart at Macy's sells this clean classic gravy boat for $7.99.

Five more ideas after the jump ...

Hot Time: The Frieling Stainless Insulated Sauce/Gravy Boat looks better than the other insulated options we've seen and Epicurious recommends it, but the reviews on Amazon aren't so hot. Can someone recommend an insulated gravy boat that doesn't dribble?

Fly: This bird-shaped boat is from Lenox and is on sale over at Etsy for just $5.00.

Sensuous Mid-Century: Crate & Barrel reissued this 1952 classic from Eva Zeisel. The Classic Century Sauce Boat is $47.95.
Pewter Stunner: So much character in this pewter gravy boat. Looks like something that might have been in use for over a hundred years. $185 might be beyond your budget, but consider this a sculpture for the table.

Easy Going: This Simplicity Sauceboat from Target was a clear favorite. It is $17.99 and includes the ladle. We like this one because it will match with whatever dinnerware you already have.
