There is nothing better than a kitchen tool that's gorgeous and useful at the same time, and one of our favorite spots for cute-but-practical gadgets is Anthropologie. The darling lifestyle retailer stocks a wide range of whisks, rolling pins, and pie dishes that not only look great, but work well, too.
So it comes as no surprise that Anthropologie is behind this gaggle of delicate ceramic geese that doubles as a set of handy measuring cups. And while this set of four cups is currently sold out on the brand’s website, we found it on Nordstrom.
To buy: $38; nordstrom.com
Painted white and adorned with golden rims, these measuring cups aren’t just pretty statement pieces: The long necks of the geese make them incredibly convenient for scooping sugar and flour, so you won’t have to reach deep into their packaging, and your hands won’t be covered in all that powder. And since they are nesting, the cups won’t take up much counter space, so you can go ahead and show them off as much as you please.
This isn’t the only stunning animal-inspired style from Anthroplogie, either. For ocean lovers, there’s a set of blue measuring cups that resemble ceramic whales for only $32. There is even another set that is woodland-themed, and it comes with cups carved like tree trunks and a topper shaped like an adorable hedgehog.
These animal-themed measuring cups make the perfect present for a baker whose secret ingredient is whimsy. In fact, there are tons of bakeware items from Anthropologie on sale at Nordstrom right now as part of the retailer’s Half-Yearly Sale, including a stoneware pie dish painted with poppies and a cream-colored ceramic speckled mixing bowl. The number of shoppers eyeing these kitchen tools are rising by the minute, so we highly recommend getting yours before they sell out.
