Stocking Stuffer Ideas

I love silly little gifts.  Stocking stuffers are best when they are goofy but they should be practical too.  Here are a few fun stocking stuffer ideas.

Cocktail Bitters

Perfect for cocktail lovers.  The more unusual the better. Challenge the bartender in your family to find a use for chocolate bitters.  Yum!

Truffle Oil or Truffle Salt

You can never have too much truffle!

Smoked Paprika

Adds a hint of smokey flavor to just about anything.  Smoked paprika is the “secret” ingredient in many of my recipes.


At around $20 for a gram, the cooks on your list will be very appreciative of a gift of saffron!

Wine Stoppers

I love these wine plungers – I bought a couple and I might keep them for myself.

Salt and Pepper Shakers

I call mine Mr. Pepper Pants.  Salt and pepper shakers take a lot of abuse in my kitchen so I can never have too many.

Ultimately, stocking stuffers should be those fun little treats you feel guilty buying for yourself.  Happy Holidays!
