Gift Guide: Pigging Out

 An Enchanting Pair of Porkers


A pig product of some kind has become de rigeur for my gift guide.  Goldpig480(2)

(In year one it was the gilt piglet bank, above, from Moss in New York. The late, much-lamented shop was as much museum as store.)

Although this year’s offering is not quite so grand, I can’t resist such an endearing pair of pigs. Filled with salt, pepper or sugar, they sit on your table adding an instant touch of whimsy.

I’ve found half a dozen on-line sources (including Ebay), ranging from $30 to $17 a pair; this Wisconsin shop is the least expensive of the lot.  If you have a friend who loves pigs – and who doesn’t?- this would make a perfect present.
