PAIR IT WITH SOME PHILOSOPHER’S SCONES

We wish afternoon tea were a thing in America (we’re also still pining for the subjunctive, as you may have noticed). We’ve tried to initiate teatime on more than one occasion, but we’re just not organized enough. When 3 or 4 p.m. rolls around, we’re flagging. We need caffeine, but we’re too tired to break out the fancy china along with clotted cream and scones. We’re more of a soda and a bag of chips lot around here, unfortunately.

Of course, if we had something fancy to serve it with, some reason to take a break (excuse us for using the word “break” there), we might be more likely to do it up proper. Take this Harry Potter tea set, for instance. The teapot and sugar bowl are both emblazoned with the Hogwarts logo. And each of your four guests will jockey to get to the cart first to ensure their preferred choice of house teacup is still left. (The saucers are house agnostic, fortunately.) It’s best if you invite one guest from each house, but that’s not a requirement. Just be aware that if you invite four Slytherins, things could get ugly.

Minecraft Light-Up Enchanted Apple

Consider yourself lucky that you don’t have to craft an Enchanted Apple yourself. It used to take 648 Gold Nuggets just to make one of these, but now you just have to be fortunate enough to come across one. That’s a lot of patience for Absorption IV, Regeneration II, Resistance, and a Fire Resistance buff. But it’s worth it for the ability to take a stroll through some lava.  

Star Wars Empire Panini Press

Search your feelings, you know it to be true… you’ve always wanted your food to be on the dark side, haven’t you? We have. And now that we have this panini press, we’re never going back to the Jedi temple. We guess we’re just not strong enough to resist the deliciousness.
