Cornstick Pan 

We love this pan so much that we wrote an ode about it. The beloved Southern staple has quite a legacy—the cornstick design has been around since the 30s. It’s a nostalgic choice for a white elephant gift and will be the prize of choice for the cast iron lovers in the room (We see you and love you!).

The holiday mini skillet is a Lodge tradition. And while it is seasoned and ready to use, most people find this skillet does its best work adding cast iron flair to your Christmas tree. Each year, we create a new limited-edition, dated design, which ups the ante on the white elephant gift trades.
