Celebrate National Soup Month with These Stylish Bowls and Spoons

January is National Soup Month, so it’s the perfect time to brush up on your spoon knowledge and enjoy a bowl of hot deliciousness. It’s also the perfect time to start enjoying your soup in style! Below are some cool soup bowls and fun spoons that will make your soup dining a bit fancier.

When it comes to soup, you want a bowl that not only holds enough, but is also big enough to prevent splashing or spilling. That means you want a nice, deep bowl. Of course, soup bowls can be fancy, as well, and add a bit more joy to your overall dining experience.

Likewise, not all soup spoons are created equal. In fact, there are three types: bouillon, soup, and cream. Lighter soups only require the shallow bowl of a bouillon spoon, while the basic hearty soup is best eaten with a soup spoon. Thicker, cream-style soups need the deeper bowl of the cream soup spoon.

Check out our recs below to find the soup bowls and spoons that best suit your style and eating habits.
