“Lagoon” Mug

A special occasion calls for something stylish (read: not kitschy), like this wheel-thrown aquamarine statement piece made by Boston potter Christina Kosinski.

$32, Loyal Supply Co.

Organic Tea

We recommend the nutty Nepali Black Gold or the slightly marine-scented Sencha Green from Portsmouth outlet White Heron, but you can’t go wrong with any of its 60-plus organic teas and chai.

$8, American Provisions.


Upgrade an English muffin with these eclectic New Haven, Vermont, honey preserves (blackberry-prune-lemon-basil jam, anyone?) from Renee Erickson protégé V Smiley.

$13, American Provisions.


Belmont baker Adel Donegan turned her love of teatime—not to mention a clutch of family recipes—into the Vintage Tea and Cake Company, which churns out fluffy cranberry, currant, and cheddar-and-chive scones.

$5.50, Bee’s Knees Supply Co.

Cold Brew

Northeastern grad Olin Nelson ditched the 9-to-5 grind to launch Commonwealth Coffee Co., a cold-brew brand that focuses on oaked, hopped, and even maple-syrup-infused single-origin blends.

$5, Formaggio Kitchen.

Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup

Take a cue from Moody’s Delicatessen chef Joshua Smith, who uses Crown Maple’s tree-to-table maple syrup in cocktails, as a glaze, and slathered with abandon over chicken and waffles.

$30, Moody’s Delicatessen & Provisions.

“Bogart” Tray

Make any dish pop with this brass-and-black-walnut board from the serious craftsmen at the Wooden Palate, based in Los Angeles. After all, presentation is key.

$425, Farm & Fable.

Salmon Bacon

Prepare to forsake the standard-issue swine strips after trying Boston Smoked Fish Co.’s luscious Atlantic-salmon-belly bacon, which you can crisp up in a pan or nosh on straight from the package.

$8.50, Boston Public Market.
