And for Dessert: Philippe Starck-Shaped Cookies

Okay, to be fair, they’re Philippe Starck kettle-shaped cookies.

For our last-second Design Wonk Holiday Gift Guide, we recommend Alessi’s stainless steel Progiotti cookie cutter set. In addition to darling gingerbread men and various iconic cookware, the shapes include Starck’s ill-fated 199o Hot Bertaa Miniature Kettle, a design so flawed in its lack of water-boiling abilities that it got yanked off the market by 1997. Commemorative sugar cookies would do well for any Christmas spread.
