I’m in search of a little gifty for a foodie friend, and remembered this cool way to keep herbs fresh. Thought I’d dig it out of the archives…

Smart, clean-looking design. This ceramic pot from Sagaform allows for the handsome presentation and preservation of fresh herbs. Insert a bunch of basil or chives in the enlarged opening, and keep them hydrated by pouring water into the corner hole.

The broad base ensures that all those little stalks have access to water, while allowing air to circulate so herbs keep from becoming limp and waterlogged. Easily separated for cleaning. Fresh basil — nothing better!
