GIR silicone lids, Product of GIR, $7.95 - $19.95
GIR is short for "get it right" and, boy, this company has done just that! The GIR silicone lid is a well-designed and innovative product that is also good looking — a hard trio to come by!
These silicone lids take the place of any kind of tin foil or wrap and create a perfect seal to keep items fresh. Put it in the oven, microwave, or fridge — it works for hot or cold and also keeps those fridge odors out. And it’s re-usable so it’s eco-friendly!

Chef's towel, Snowehome.com, $25
It sounds simple, but thanks to its clever tie on the corner and oversize dimensions (bigger than a typical hand towel), it can do double duty as an apron with the added plus that it softens over time.

Gourmet pigs in a blanket, Brooklynpiggies.com, $24
It all started in 1976, when Missy Koo witnessed a horde of party goers surround her mother as she served pigs in a blanket. Their response was overwhelming and no other food served that evening was met with quite the same enthusiasm.
Missy partnered with Stacy Cole to tackle a simple goal: Take America's favorite hors d'oeuvre and make it better — way better!
They developed four different varieties: original, spicy, chicken and veggie and wrapped them in a light and flaky puff pastry.
