1. Match Gravy Boat ($200)
Going for extra gravy never looked so refined. This handcrafted Italian pewter serving vessel is always a pleasure to pass. It's also available in a 16-ounce size, for twice as much of the good stuff. Buy it at Match.
2. Hudson Cutting Board ($140)
This handsome black-walnut cutting board looks just as good piled with hors d'oeuvres as it does hanging from a wall on its leather loop. Thin cork feet keep the board from trapping moisture underneath. Buy it at Jacob May.

5. Staub Ceramic Pumpkin Cocotte ($25)
Present your guests with single-serving potpies or fruit crisps baked in these adorable miniature pots, which are safe to put in the oven and dishwasher. There is also a larger version in cast iron. Buy it at Amazon.
