5 Little Things I'm Stocking Up on at Sur la Table Today

When I first met my now-husband, I thought it was adorable to learn that he had a gift closet. Even in a small New York City apartment, he found room to stash future gifts for people. He had a mix of generic presents that could work for anyone, and specific items targeted to, say, his mom's birthday ... next May. It was so thoughtful — and also extremely practical.

I know because now we have a shared gift closet (filled with things for other people — not each other, because that would be silly). We buy things as we see them, if they speak to us for a certain person, or if we find something at a great price point that could work as a last-minute hostess gift.

Why am I telling you all this? Because you should have a gift closet, too. (Or at least a gift basket!) And Sur la Table is making it extra easy to stock up: The site is currently having a buy-two-get-one-free sale on lots of little items. With loads of end-of-summer cookouts (and the holidays!) coming up, it's worth taking a look.

Keep reading to see what I'm ordering.

  1. Olive and Coriander Dish Soap, $12.95 each ($25.90 for three): Nice dish soap makes a great housewarming gift, and I have a handful of friends who are about to close on new houses. The matching hand soap is also part of this sale.
  2. 9.5-Inch Beechwood Angled Turner, $6.50 each ($13 for three): I like to dress up simple wooden tools and gift them with a homemade treat. I'll either use a wood burner to etch a design, which I realize is little extra, or I'll dip the handle in some brightly colored paint.
  3. Assorted Twill Kitchen Towels, $15 for a pack of three ($30 for three packs): Let's be honest — there's a strong chance I'm just gonna keep these all for myself. I'm partial to the indigo ones and the black ones.
  4. Olivewood Honey Dipper, $12.95 each ($25.90 for three): Pair one of these with a nice thing of honey (and maybe even some tea) when visiting a sick friend.
  5. Fox Run 2-in-1 Kitchen Ruler & Oven Rack Push-Puller, $4.95 each ($9.90 for three): This may seem like an unnecessary tool, but I have one and I can't tell you how much I use it! It would be a cute gift paired with cookie ingredients in a Mason jar.
