GIFT GUIDE // Holiday Gift Guide: Keith Kreeger










Keith Kreeger, at least according to his Instagram, is seemingly always either eating delicious food or making beautiful things on which to put delicious food. An immensely talented potter, Keith is a neighbor of ours at Canopy studios, and we’re so glad that we’ve made his acquaintance. You can see more about his studio in this video. We can’t wait for our chance to dine with him, but in the meantime, we’re excited about his selection of gifts for the table!

Gifts for The Table

1. Charcuterie from ContigoWe’ll start local in Austin and grab some incredible food to get the party started.  My friends at Contigo have put a brilliant Charcuterie package together for the holidays.  Order now and you’ll be able to pick it up and serve it when your friends and family come over.

2. Wood Tray from StinsonNeed something to serve Contigo’s pate on?   Stinson Studios in Canada make some of the most beautiful turned bowls I’ve ever seen.  They also have these beautiful paté boards for your holiday party.

3. Pierced Bowl from Kristen KeifferI love these new baskets by Kristen Kieffer.  Perfect for fruit or some fresh baked bread.  There are a few to choose from on Kristen’s etsy site but you should hurry over because she makes one of a kind pieces that don’t last too long in her shop.

4. Cheese Markers from Beehive KitchenwareSandra and Jim are two of my favorite people to hang with when I go up to NY for the market.  Someone gave my wife and I Beehive Kitchenware’s “Heart Measuring Spoons” when we got engaged and they have so many great designs.  I suggest you grab some of those “Bird Cheese Markers” this year.

5. Cake Stand from DBO HomeLooking for the perfect something to hold that beautiful cake you’re serving? Dana Brandwein Oates is a designer and maker in Sharon, CT.  Here designs can be found at West Elm, ABC Home, Anthropologie and more great shops around the country.  These new Cake Stands are available from her dbO WARE collection and they’re available in 3 sizes.

6. Dome from Travis SandovalWant to showcase cheese, dessert treats  or just about anything else you’re serving at the holiday party?  Travis Sandoval is based just outside of San Francisco and is an amazing craftsman.  These beautiful and colorful serving pieces are crying out to hold delicious bites.

You’ll be the toast of the town for your next dinner party—-all thanks to Keith! The holidays are good for many things, and filling fancy dishes with food is definitely one of them.
