5. Four Seasons Shakers

Change with the seasons with these creative transparent shakers. The four different icons feature two different hole sizes — smaller ones for salt and pepper, and larger for herbs of your choice. When the herbs are sitting on the bottom, the plants appeared to be rooted (I.e. in the “snow”-like look of salt, or the soil-like appearance of ground pepper).

6. Nostalgic Shakers

These painted tin-plated shakers have large holes atop for easy salt and pepper distribution, and their bright design add a quirky, retro-inspired twist to your typical table setting.

7. Christmas Tree Shakers

It’s never too early to start planning your Christmas presents. These shakers make a great addition to any Christmas table, with a bit of snow littering one of the trees to distinguish it as the one carrying salt.

8. Salt ‘n Pepa

Throwback to this classic girl group and their infamous song with these tongue-in-cheek shakers. A great Yankee swap gift, or present for that friend with a sense of humor, it may instigate an impromptu sing-a-long whenever you get them out.
