What is it about the Anthropologie kitchen wares that make us what to chuck every plate, rag, and teaspoon we've got and start from scratch? Everything from the drinking cups to the aprons is so charming. While few of us can afford to buy whole store sections at one time (and for those of you who can, we're all really jealous), a fancy treat here and there never hurt. The Izmir Measuring Cups ($32) are beautifully hand-painted, useful, and dishwasher safe. They would be a great gift for someone just starting out on their own or as a refined update to your old plastic Ikea numbers.
