Recently I have found myself needing to buy new salt and pepper shakers. I think our Registered Dietitian would be very concerned if she saw what we are currently using--you know that giant container of salt you buy at the store to refill your salt shaker? Yeah, we're using that. Let's just say we've had more than one salty accident.

Festive salt and pepper shakers are an easy way to spice up your kitchen and spark one of those conversations that every host loves to have ("Oh my gosh, these are so adorable! Where'd you get them?").

Here are some of the cutest and most creative salt and pepper shakers I've found. Don't tell my roommates, but the Cow Jumping Over the Moon shakers might just appear in our kitchen next week.
