Center the subject
Even it is a simple product shot, adding a human touch always made it more alive, and higher appeals for consumers, at least this is what I usually do, or will recommend my client to do.
For example, this is a shot for a lacquered wood bowl, an otherwise common handicraft object, although it does have something extra in its design, but however, the product was design to be use, at least to be appreciated by human. Shot with a Canon 1Ds III with EF 100/2.8L IS Macro, of course the focus is the product, and here to avoid the actual human, a lovely Russian model by the way, to cannibalize the product in scale, or the beautiful model to share the focus of the beauty of product, the face of the model was cropped, and her pose centered around the product, to allow it to stand out.
