BlackCreek Mercantile Cutting Board Oil
Last year you gave your favorite couple that gorgeous monogrammed cutting board for their first holiday season together. This year, give them something to make sure that gift stands the test of time (we have a hunch they haven’t bought this for themselves yet—it’s the kind of thing you need, but never want to buy). A touch of lemon-scented mineral oil is the secret to keeping overworked acacia cutting boards, bamboo-handled knives, marble accents, or even unfinished wood furniture in perfect condition. Now, if only someone else could do the maintenance work. Also available in a rosemary scent.
To buy: $42, amazon.com.
