We just love this tea kettle. With a 1.25-quart capacity, it’s the perfect size for tea or coffee for one. Plus, the cast iron construction ensures that your water will stay hot long after it’s been boiled. Don’t sleep on this one — all of the colored enamel options are still available, but they won’t be for long.

These subtle gray coasters will look amazing on your coffee table or desk. The merino wool doesn’t just win style points — it’s naturally absorbent, too! Take advantage of this sale price, and pick up a couple of sets to give as holiday gifts in a few months.

High-quality candles can cost dozens of dollars. This one, with a pure soy wax base, is under $20! It’s scented with a grown-up blend of jasmine, amber, green leaves, and rose, and is poured into a sophisticated ceramic holder. Speaking of — don’t toss the candle once you’ve burned it: That holder will work as a planter or just a nice place for all of your pens.

This luxe set of bar tools normally retails for $70 due to custom mother-of-pearl handles. It’s on sale for 40 percent off, but you’ll still get the full set, including a double jigger, strainer, and bar spoon. Display these proudly on your bar cart — they may just help you get in touch with your inner mixologist this fall.

Made from reclaimed denim, these dynamic tea towels are sustainable, hard-working, and pretty. They’re decorated with subtle stitching on the border but are otherwise simple and minimalistic — perfect for a no-fuss cook that still wants their gear to look great.

Simple glass jars and bottles will never go out of style (just ask the mason jars in our pantry). This generously sized bottle holds 34 ounces of any liquid — hot or cold — and really nails the retro milk bottle vibe. It’d be perfect at a dinner party.

Snap this versatile cutting board up before the marathon holiday cooking season begins. This sturdy, elegant piece is made from maple and is way more than a cutting board. There’s a juice groove — a must for carving meat — as well as a built-in knife sharpener, and a notch for holding recipes. Brilliant design and a seriously attractive price.

Is it time to finally retire that dirty old disposable sponge? (Yes.) It’s hard to make dishwashing tools look nice, but Zone Denmark totally nailed it with this compact set. It comes with a soap holder and a brush on a tray to catch drips. We love this option for design nuts who don’t love the sight of a plastic bottle of soap on their counter. P.S. You can buy replacement heads for the brush once it gets old!

The original and best corkscrew (and for those who plan ahead, the perfect stocking stuffer). The Rabbit normally retails for $50, and fans agree it’s worth every penny. But Nordstrom’s offering it for $30. The handle is ergonomically designed and intuitive to use, so you can open any bottle of wine without breaking a sweat… or a cork.

Use this set of four differently sized bowls for food prep, food storage, and serving. Seriously, go ahead — that’s what they’re designed for. They can handle your freezer, microwave, and dishwasher, but still look nice enough to place on your dinner table. Genius.

Your pumpkin lattes and cups of hot tea deserve the very best. This rough-textured ceramic mug holds a generous 14 ounces and is photo-ready for the ‘gram. Choose from simple black or a creamy white… or pick up both for you and your partner (or best friend!), and settle in for a fall full of cozy beverages.
