Spoon straws are metal straws that have a spoon bowl attached, so you can use them to both stir and sip a cocktail, ice tea or ice cream floats and shakes. Although we’ve collected them over the years at flea markets, we had no idea that we could buy new ones that were both inexpensive and great looking: a perfect summer house or dinner party gift.
Then Better Living Through Design posted about them the other day, and we ran right away to Amazon to discover a deal. You can buy 12 for 2 + $9 shipping @ $1.75 a piece OR 48 for $40 + 2.60 shipping which brings the price down to about $1.10 each. We’d buy 48 and bundle packs of 8,10, or 12 and tie them a ribbon to give as gifts. (We might include straw cleaning brush for $6.)
Anyway you slice it, these make great gift.
