In recent years dinnerware preferences have swayed from perfectly matched sets to eclectic mish-mashed collections. These days plenty of people stack their kitchen cabinets with a variety of one-off ceramic bowls and plates, each a bit more imperfect and handmade than the last. And thank god, because no one really gets excited about giving a set of plain white china for the holidays, right?
If you’re after a few ceramic gifts, good old hand-thrown mugs are always welcome. But there’s also plenty more out there: speckled platters and little garlic pots, pinched-edge plates, modernist teapots, or a sleek tortilla warmer. Read on for a few of our favorite thoughtful and unique ceramic gifts.
One striking serving dish can make a whole table. I’ve had my eye on these three bowls for a while: The graphic dish would go well with any set of off-white plates, making it a versatile gift choice. The second option, by British ceramicist Emma Cerasulo, is a more specific choice—the dramatic deep green speckle is inspired by the landscape in Puglia, Italy. The third, a flat-bottomed platter by Beau Rush, is maybe the most fun of the group—get it for your favorite arty aunt or your grooviest friend.

Every caffeine-reliant person has a favorite mug. Mine is from East Fork, the Asheville, North Carolina, ceramics studio known for sturdy speckled hand-thrown dishes. If you want to go beyond a mug, why not consider a teapot (in either a kooky blue swirl or a subdued tan), a honey pot, or a little clay tumbler that’s just the right size for a cappuccino.
