It’s Thanksgiving Day, and this basically means that the holiday season has officially begun! My favorite time of the year has started! It’s the day to give thanks, and truly feel grateful for all the amazing people and things we have in our lives. As we show gratitude and appreciation for the rollercoaster that was the past year (the good parts and the bad parts both), we’ve curated a collection of unique product designs to help you get through this mega holiday. From Game of Thrones-themed cutlery to shakers inspired by the four seasons – these exciting products are all you need to take your Thanksgiving dinner to the next level. We hope you are able to amp up this special holiday with these special designs. Enjoy!
1. The Four Season Shakers
The Four Seasons shakers are quite literally perfection. Capturing four different types of seasoning, and embodying them in snow-globe-esque containers, Qualy Design’s Four Seasons shakers are just simply clever and adorable at the same time. Not only are they well designed, but the absolutely witty wordplay also makes the product even more lovable! You’ve got four shakers that embody four different seasons and hold four different seasonings. Designed for salt, pepper, dried herbs, and chili flakes, the shakers come with plants on the inside that pair well with the seasoning.
2. Curved Flatware
Our team is having a debate and we need your help – is this oddly satisfying or does it disturb your OCD? Designed by Object Rights, this curved flatware will perfectly complement the circular plates on your dinner table this Thanksgiving. I, for one, am quite intrigued by this experimental design!
3. Transformer Table
The Transformer Table comes with two expanding sides and a central leg piece that sits anywhere in the middle to support the weight at the center. Once the table’s sides are pulled apart, wooden planks are placed on the top to give the table its long surface. The Transformer Table 3.0’s wooden panels stack to turn into a separate coffee table that you can use as a secondary piece of furniture, giving you two tables in one! The Transformer Table 3.0 pairs with the Transformer Bench, which has its wooden panels stored inside its hollow center. The bench’s height allows it to fit under the table too, giving you furniture that is both expandable and stackable for ultimate control over your space. For people who like dining on higher surfaces, there’s the Transformer Counter height table, a raised dining table to suit your home’s decor.
4. Golden-Accent Marble Dinner Plates
The Golden-Accent Marble Dinner Plates are probably the most gorgeous collection of plates I’ve ever laid my eyes upon! Each plate features an exquisite marble design, which almost look like little galaxies on tableware! The plates come in four interesting color options – white, black, grey, and blue. Each one is adorned with golden accents and marbled designs of different colors. There is also a hint of gold along the rim of the plates. The Golden-Accent Marble Dinner Plates would be an exciting addition to your otherwise traditional Thanksgiving dinner table!
5. The KitchenAid Smart Oven + Connected Wall Oven
The KitchenAid Smart Oven+ Connected Wall Oven is the sidekick you need while preparing a lavish Thanksgiving dinner! The smart oven is compatible with a variety of attachments, allowing you to effortlessly engage in different styles and techniques of cooking. The wall oven attachments include a steamer, grill, and a baking stone. The KitchenAid Smart Oven harmoniously combines all these attachments to create one wholesome cooking experience. Preparing a Thanksgiving spread has never been this simple and easy!
6. Game of Spoons
Oh, Game of Thrones, whatever our take on the faults of the final season, one thing remains, we can’t ignore the series or the impact it had on our lives with hours of discussions, theories and lets not even get started on the number of inspired souvenirs I own! But all that is pushed aside with just one look at these elaborately crafted spoons, designed in collaboration between HBO and Magnum as a part of their limited-edition collection, with each design representing the houses that played a part in the show in an iconic manner. From the gleaming red and gold Lannister-worthy engraving to the stark fierceness of the northerners, each of these spoons completely defines the characteristics that made this series such an epic exercise in storytelling.
ODNY.BOX is a food storage concept with an intuitive control dial and a minimal aesthetic for users to store any type of leftover, from hot baked cookies to cold Greek yogurt. Inspired by the bulbous shape that water makes when it drops on flat surfaces, the glass lid of ODNY.BOX comes together as half of a globe and almost curls under the platform where food is kept to ensure sealed storage. The seasons have an effect not only on the food we eat but also on how that food is kept for tomorrow. During the winter months, the hot food we order or cook at home is subject to cold temperatures, while during the warmer months, perishables like produce are the first to go bad. It’s perfect for storing your Thanksgiving leftovers!
8. The Cakedozer Cake Server
The Cakedozer Cake Server makes serving those Thanksgiving pies a piece of cake! The server is quite a nifty kitchen appliance that adds a smart mechanism to an otherwise traditional serving utensil. The smart mechanism pushes the slice of cake or pie off the server, and onto your plate. The server is available in gray and yellow. It can also be used to serve pizza as well!
9. The Lékué Vegetable Ricer
The Lékué Vegetable Ricer turns florets of cauliflower or broccoli into tiny grains that can either be used as a garnish, substituted for rice, or mixed with other ingredients to form healthy, low-carb, plant-based dishes. Yes, it surely is a niche product, as much as an avocado peeler is, or a soup spoon, or a honey stick, but it does what it intends to exceptionally well, with ease, and without electricity. Just chuck chunks of cauliflower or broccoli into the ricer, close it shut, and twist the lid a couple of times, and spokes within the inner container help break the chunks down into smaller grain-like particles, which you can then steam to use as a rice substitute, or turn into a wonderful gluten-free pizza crust! You can switch to a healthier diet with this product once your Thanksgiving binge is over!
10. The Slow Dance
Designed to be an art installation you can hang on a wall or place on a mantelpiece and stare at for hours, the Slow Dance lets you mount a variety of things within its magical frame, from feathers to flowers, to even interesting looking leaves. Switch it on, and the object within the frame begins fluttering in slow motion, without any external stimulus (you should really check out the video above). The illusion relies on two core components – a precisely engineered system within the Slow Dance’s frame, and your eye’s ability to see in 24 frames per second. The engineering lies in an electromagnet that causes the feather/flower/leaf to flutter away, and LED lighting built into the frame’s inner edge that strobes/flickers at a precisely calculated rate to make that chaotic flutter seem like slow-motion choreography. It could be a perfect decor piece for your Thanksgiving dinner party!
