The holidays are here. The relatives are here. The snacks are out. And all those grubby fingers are touching everything! But lo and behold for the germaphobe there is a way to turn that frown upside down.
The Snack Spout for Nut & Candy Jars is an ingenious little gadget that turns an ordinary store-bought jar of nuts into a dispenser. Just screw on the gizmo and flip it over. Candy and nuts rain down into waiting hands with a simple turn of the knob. Now if they could just make one for the holiday dinner table!

The hottest gift of the holiday season is usually a toy, right? Well, the youngest ones need to have a say too — even if they haven’t learned to speak yet.
By all rights, the Tortilla Baby Swaddle Blanket should be the most popular gift of the year. It’s a round baby blanket made to look like a flour tortilla. Yes, it’s made for babies, but really it’s suitable for kids of all ages. Quite possibly the cutest thing ever.
Okay, everybody get ready to say ‘awww’ now…

It’s always hoot o’clock somewhere. Wine flies when you’re having fun. A bird in the hand is worth two wines in the glass. Isn’t that how all those sayings go? Oh well, who cares? It’s Friday!
Check out this Owl Clock Wine Stopper. The little guy sits atop your bottle of wine and keeps track of the proceedings with his working clock. Don’t worry, though, if things get too feisty, he can always turn his head (270 degrees) away.

Hands down, the most important spices are salt and pepper. When used properly, salt and pepper always deserve a round of applause. In fact, any chef not using salt and pepper should not only be given a wag of the finger, but also a slap on the wrist — and then be taken away in handcuffs. Good thing a handful of salt and pepper is never far away.
You gotta hand it to these Handy Salt and Pepper Mills, they really come in handy around the kitchen. Before, during and after cooking a meal, these handsome salt and pepper grinders handle the seasoning task handily. Available as a lefty or a righty, the hands look like an artist’s articulated model, but with the important distinction these hands are handing over the spices. Pretty neat. I’d sure like to shake the hand of the person who thought of this.
And yes, they are handmade.

First there was chicken in a can, and now we have chicken in a candle. What a time to be alive.
Kentucky-centric site Kentucky for Kentucky has these fried chicken candles up for sale. Made in small batches by Kathy Werking, the Scents of the Commonwealth candle (something called Ale 8 being the other scent) is made from a “mouth-watering recipe.”
If you’re lickin’ your fingers hoping to click on through and pick one up one of these $22 fried chicken scented candles, sadly the first batch is sold out. Looks like the Colonel has some competition.
Via Oh Gizmo!

They say no two snowflakes are alike. Never is that more true than when the snowflake is made of meat.
Okay, the Porcelain Snowflake Ornament of cured meats in Mercado Municipal, Sao Paulo Brazil might not actually be made of meat, but it sure looks good enough to eat (don’t eat it).
And if the above snowflake of meat doesn’t look appetizing, perhaps these DELI PROSCIUTTO, PROVOLONE, SALAMI & PARMIGGIANO ORNAMENTS will strike your fancy.
Sure beats hanging leftover turkey from the tree.
