How about an actual pottery class? A lot of art studios are doing once off classes were you can make something basic and take it home.

You never know one of you might have a natural talent!

Is he religious? A small sentimental gift could be nice. Maybe a rosary/prayer bead holder, an offering dish, something like that?

Does he have favorite countries or cultures? Maybe buy a piece of pottery art (bowl, serving platter, something beautiful to set on a shelf or hang on the wall) from that country or culture?

Late to the party, but... .

I bought a bread warmer pottery bowl some years back (maybe Williams Sonoma?) and now use it when I bake bread. I get a couple of different olive oils and hard cheeses, a little seasoning, bake the bread and serve it with olive oil/cheese dipping sauce and some wine. Makes for a great appetizer. You can then reuse the pottery every time you feel like making bread.

I would enjoy that but how is it a present for my husband?

For the first time ever, I may actually have a gift idea.


When Harvey came through, I started thinking about these, a passive ceramic/clay pot water filtration system:

Reasonable minds could differ, and it's admittedly not particularly romantic or anything, but I'd think a gift like that would be pretty cool if I got it.

I think you & my husband may share a brain. While I'd be horrified & cranky if he got this for me, I think it's something he'd love.

Do you have water & electricity yet?

We never lost it, thankfully. We're close to 100 miles inland from Houston and just got side-swiped. Now, getting side-swiped in this case still meant 20 inches of rain, and our area saw some flooding, but other than a leak or two we came through okay.

Nice shaving mug and brush set. (does he shave).

Coffee mug

Beer Stine.

Pizza stone.

Clay pigeons (if he shoots, trap) You could also get him a shotgun and ammo to round it out.

Fire clay pot, if you have a court yard or back yard. (see home depot)

Go to a pottery store shop, and make a hand made invite to a trip, or dinner. or sex with you.......

Garden fountain.

Garden sundial,

My two cents......

Not just for hurricanes and other natural disasters, either. I imagine it could be used camping, hiking, or if there is a problem with the local water supply.

My Aunt is on well water and a cistern. She had to use a filter for a while due to some contamination issue they had to resolve. I have had to buy water for a few days here every time the city does water and sewage maintenance, replaces broken pipes (happens every year or so due to the winters), or is expanding due to construction. I should probably get one for us and one for my Aunt and we don't even have hurricanes, quakes, volcanos, forest fires, and only very rare tornadoes.

Oops! I didn’t explain that! You could give him the pottery and then bake the bread to go in it with a bottle of wine and some cheeses. More of an experience than a “gift” but the bowl would be the gift.
