Do you use a bouquet garni to flavor your soups? If so, try tucking them into a tea ball instead of cheesecloth.

We came across this idea at Williams Sonoma – it's so simple and obvious, but we'd never thought to try it. Cheesecloth and muslin bags are great, but this is a good alternative. Plus, it's reusable.

We found a few other tea infusers that could work well with spices too, including a couple of heart-shaped versions. A little cheesy, sure. But it could be a cute little Valentine's Day gift for a tea or spice lover.
