A Cruet Set for your Favorite Wine Lover

These cruets are cleverly disguised as upsidedown wine glasses.  A perfect gift for the wine lover or foodie in your life.

The set is 7 3/4 inches tall and includes a filling funnel and cleaning brush.  These would be a clever accompaniment to any dinner featuring wine.  If you are doing a wine and cheese party, quality seasoned olive oil served in these, with some crusty bread would make a wonderful addition.

The cruet set is currently available at The Well Dressed Home for $34.95

iSi Stainless Steel Pro Tongs are the perfect gift for any avid cook, or BBQ enthusiast.  I own several pairs of tongs, and these are by far the best in quality and design.  I would suggest the 12″ length for general usage.  The tongs  have 3 locking positions: closed, narrow and wide.  Designed with function in mind.  Their are 3 different edges, so that all types of  food can be handled well without damage.
