Because everyday dinners don’t have to be boring.

Although we’re delighted to have the option of outdoor dining back, it’s a simple fact that most of us eat most of our meals within our own four walls (especially if you’re working from home). 

So it’s nice to find ways to freshen things up, whether that’s a new serving dish, something to brighten up the table, or new glasses. Here are 30 options, all under €30.

Tableware 

kitchen buys under €30
Glass carafe, €9.99, H&M

From a gorgeous carafe to serve cold drinks to a cake server that will make an afternoon pick-me-up feel like an occasion, never underestimate the delight that using beautiful things every day can bring.  

Table linen and accessories

Corn Leaf placemat, €7, Industry & Co

Even paying just a little attention to the setup of your table will instantly elevate your meal. Add texture with woven placemats, or enjoy the tactility of fabric napkins.

Glassware

Wine glass, €7.99, H&M

Why settle for humdrum drinking vessels?

Practical but pretty

There’s so many everyday items we use in our kitchen that serve a functional purpose, but add no aesthetic value. These options show that this doesn’t have to be the case.
