Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Your Favorite Foodie (All Under $15!)


These fun finds may be small, but they’ll receive big smiles from the gastrophiles on your gift-giving list.

Clockwise from left:

King of the Jams

Royal blenheim apricots are considered by many to be one of the more delicious varietals, thanks to their deep, rich flavor. Made in Berkeley, this jam is amazing in tarts, glazes or just slathered on a piece of buttered toast. Royal Blenheim Apricot Jam ($12 at Rare Device)

Rock and Roll

Know someone who loves garlic, but not the pungent smell that lingers on your fingers after chopping it? This little tool is the perfect solution. Plus, it’s much easier to clean than a traditional garlic press. Rocker the Garlic Crusher ($15 at A + R Store)

Crack Open a Cold One

There is something so satisfying about using a wall-mounted bottle opener. “Open Here” Bottle Opener ($12 at Annie’s Blue Ribbon General Store)

For the Bad Boys and Girls

Got someone who has been very naughty on your list this year? Stick some coal in their stocking! This cinnamon candy coal from Hammond’s Candies is deceptively delicious. Plus, it turns your mouth blue so everyone will know what was nice and who was not. Cinnamon Coal ($4 at Hammond’s Candies)

A Dash Will Do You!

These tiny measuring spoons take the confusion out of baking (really–what qualifies as a “dash,” after all?). Just a Pinch Measuring Spoon ($5 at Fishs Eddy)

The Magic Paste

We discovered this amazing paste this year. The combination of tomato, garlic, anchovy, olives, balsamic vinegar, mushrooms and more adds an incredible depth of flavor to pastas, soups and stews. Taste No. 5 Umami Paste ($6 at Dean & Deluca)
