The 12 Days of Teamas: Day 8

Dutch people are unmistakably Dutch.

As is this playful tea pot ($120) from Dutch designer Esther Derkx. Images of gymnasts, dancers and pinup girls- who perhaps indicate how you'll feel after four cups of tea, or after moving to Holland- are artfully screen-printed onto salvaged vintage teapots. That makes it ideal for any preachy, eco-conscious friends on your gift list.

Get one of these and you'll want to belt out "hit me with your best pot," but quietly, quietly- you don't want to give away what's all wrapped up in that box.
