This is the kind of present that you think you will never use, and then it turns out to be the best thing anyone has ever given you. Introducing the Ice Orb ($16). It's a round ice cube tray that you can chill Champagne in, fill the removable inner container with dip, or use as an ice bucket. Even though it's small, it will hold up to 51 ice cubes for easy party access. We thought that we had come up with an ingenious idea when we dropped our ice cream pint down into it, but then we saw on the website that you could use it for homemade ice cream...ah well, we love it regardless.
