Something Fishy for 2013

All my favorite sushi in plush form.

How cute are these?

I couldn’t resist snapping a quick pic of a holiday gift that my husband’s nephew, Chris, gave us.

Think of them as the ultimate sustainable sushi that’s also calorie-free and needs no refrigeration.

These plush, actual nigiri-sized plush sushi (along with a gyoza for good measure) were hand-sewn by Chris’ friend, Jell, who sells them on Etsy for $40 for a six-piece set.

Now, this is one sushi assortment I can enjoy for years and years to come.

How about you? Did you get any memorable food-related gifts for the holidays? Do tell.

Share and Enjoy

    These are so adorable! What a fun gift! We didn’t really exchange gifts this year. The only food related gift I got was from my friend Nancy Baggett who sent me her cookbook Simply Sensational Cookies which I love!

    Happy New Year and all the best for 2013!!

    Rae: Enjoy your tea prize. Hmmm, maybe some Thomas Keller Nutter Butters would be good with that? Can’t wait to see what you bake from the new cookbook.
