There's no such thing as buyer's remorse when that pretty thing you splashed out on is also downright practical. Take these utilitarian ceramic jars from Ben Fiess, for instance. Not only are they utterly pleasing on the eye (and available in so many colourways that you might go into an indecision-induced panic), they also break apart to reveal a storage container, a strainer, a lid and a cap. Store your lunch at work, a button collection, use as a really ridiculously good-looking thermos or just pop it on your mantel. The choice is yours (sorry, more decisions).
The clever designer is based out of Minnesota, but you can nab a jar for yourself from Third Drawer Down's online store.
