I use a gravy boat approximately one time a year: Thanksgiving. That's it. So while a traditional gravy boat lends a classic touch to the holiday table, it feels redundant the rest of the year. That's why I usually skip the boat altogether in favor of a small, pretty pitcher that makes itself at home in my kitchen in so many ways beyond Thanksgiving: as a pitcher for milk, cream, or dessert sauces; just enough wine for one; or a vase for flowers.

Here are a few pretty pitchers for your holiday table — and beyond! — starting with this sweet striped number.

I love the slightly hippie feel of this small jug, but if the pattern isn't to your liking it comes in several other colors and finishes.

Julia Paul is turning out ceramics that feel like modern classics, and this small, handleless jug is no exception. This would be in use every day in my kitchen.

Another slightly retro-feeling creamer, with just enough capacity for the gravy needs of a small Thanksgiving dinner.

Now tell us all about your gravy solution — do you use a boat? A jug? A pitcher?
