Awesome Gifts: Lord of the Rings Salt & Pepper Shakers

By on February 15, 2023

If there is even the remotest chance that someone in your life enjoys Lord of the Rings, then you owe it to them to indulge in a Lord of the Rings themed set of salt and pepper shakers. The sets are available at NeatoShop, and the entire fellowship appears to be flying off the shelf.

Summer is a season of erratic celebrations and gift giving (not unlike the sage of the Lord of the Rings). There are graduations, weddings, lawn parties, birthdays, and there seems to a set for almost every occasion.  It might even be the perfect gift for Father’s Day.

Of course, these terrifically-realized culinary spice cellars can do more than just remind fathers that their children do them much honor. The Gandalf and Saruman set can symbolize the conflict between just about any one, including rivaling co-workers. (And yes, You shall not PASS… the salt.)

Believe it or not, but the pairing of Frodo and Galadriel is the graduation gift to rule all graduation gifts. How better than to bind the graduate to a brilliant future?

For the more traditionally themed gift, perhaps for that upcoming summer wedding, there is the Aragon and Arwen set.

And who doesn’t like Gollum? While he (it?) may be paired with Samwise, I say you tell people that it’s really Smeagol or Deagol or Hobbit number 7, which ever you think makes the most sense.

Borimir, Gimli, and Legalos round out the offerings and, let’s face it, this is for when the one set of LOTR salt and pepper shakers just won’t do but rather you need to give the entire set. The recipient can then enjoy a different reminder of Middle-earth at each meal.

Just as every meal can use a dash of salt, every occasion can use the magnificence of the Lord of the Rings.  Bring on summer and pass the salt! Which one is your favorite?

    YOU SHALL NOT PASS…the salt and pepper until you use it.
