Kawaii in the Kitchen: Cute Containers and More
When it comes to finding gifts for our fellow editors, we usually opt for the funny rather than the cute. For instance, I’ve been thinking about getting Laure her very own Wuggie; and Abby’s been threatening to give us all Pattinson panties for Hanukkah. But maybe this year we’ll break tradition: ModCloth has some cute offerings in their shop right now that may be worth a look…
If you’re in need of containers and don’t really like the flimsy plastic kind, check out the Pear-y Cute Bento Boxes. Love the retro graphics–very reminiscent of vintage Pyrex containers. Though if you’re looking for just one container, the Piggy Canister thoughtfully comes with its own scooper, ideal for sugar or tea. Or if you just want something to tote your lunch in, the Rice is Right Bento Box comes with 3 bowls that fit inside perfectly to keep your food separated.
Dishwashing may be a bore, but you can dress up the sink area with a kitschy soap pump, like this Red Delicious Apple Soap Pump. They’ve also got other fruits available as well–but I’m rather partial to the Apple myself.
For tea and coffee drinkers, there’s Spot O’ Coffee French press with two matching mugs–perfect for entertaining a friend. In fact, it’s so cute that it looks like it belongs in a Fischer Price toy kitchen set. And for those afternoons of solo tea-drinking, the Better to Brew With You teacup comes with its own strainer and lid.
Now, if none of this tickles your fancy, remember: There is always the Wuggie; but you’ll have to ask Abby about those Pattinson panties because frankly, I’m too scared to know where she even found those.
