For most, the closing of a year marks the turning over of a new leaf. For others, it’s the same crap, just a different 365 days. Cover all your flippant friends’ bases with these vice-encouraging goods.
Verre Rouge Wine Glass, $59
Knock one back in style with hollow Pyrex sippers that fill to the base. Each handblown, surprisingly sturdy goblet gives the impression of floating liquid.
Cocaine and Heroin Shakers, $125
Artist David Shrigley’s bone china sprinklers bend reality and redefine “high design.” Dust some of the good stuff (salt and pepper, obv) on food in need of a quick fix.
Gold Biscuit Canister, $72
Diets be damned: A gilded jar begs to be stocked to the brim with tempting treats (not included). The porcelain container is so distracting you’ll be hard-pressed to remember who stole the cookies.
Silver Playing Cards, $12
We’re willing to take a gamble that you-know-who will appreciate the sleek look, smooth feel, and quirky character of some showy cards. Is that what makes us love them? You betcha.
Naked Girls Teapot, $56
Some people just aren’t turned on until they’ve had their caffeine. This hand-painted porcelain beauty will do the trick and then some, thanks to a scandalous display of skinny-dippers.
