Tiffany Monkey Straw
Straws are generally consigned to the realm of a very few drinks, such as root beer floats and milkshakes, and it is difficult to imagine sipping a milkshake out of the Monkey Straw from Tiffany & Co. The straw is 7.25-in. long and is made of sterling silver. A sinuous vine spirals along the length of the piece and there is the small figure of a monkey attached near the top. It could be used for actual drinking, but it might make a better gift at a baby shower, along with all the other cute but impractical objects given out at that type of gathering. Price: $155.
