The holidays represent different things for different people, but for many, they provide a ton of opportunities to entertain. In the month between Thanksgiving and New Year's, from family gatherings, friendly dinner parties, and office holiday bashes, we spend a lot of time eating and drinking.

If you want to buy someone a gift that you'll get to take advantage of next year, then consider these Moscardino Sporks from the MoMA design store. You can use the scoop and fork ends, so they're perfect both for spearing meats and cheeses and for spooning salsa and dip onto your plate.

Worried about splurging on flatware that just gets thrown away? Not to worry: according to the MoMA Web site, the Moscardino Sporks are "an example of the recent trend towards the inclusion of environmental responsibility as an important element of contemporary design. They are made of a 100 percent biodegradable corn-based plastic." They're also hand-washable, so they can be used over and over.

The Sporks are available in packs of 25 for $24.00. If you're planning a bigger party, you'd better buy a second set. After all, more is merrier, right?
