Stocking Stuffers for Your Favorite Foodie

Stocking Stuffers for Your Favorite FoodieFor some of us, receiving a stocking with delicious food items is the perfect Santa gift. We have put together our top picks for those special items that just might make someone’s Christmas that much more exciting.

Sweets
Lake Champlain Organic Coins
in Dark Chocolate and  Dark Chocolate Peppermint Crunch. This gift box is filled with delicious 57% cocoa content dark chocolate coins. Each coin is wrapped in green foil and embossed with the Lake Champlain logo. It’s a perfect stocking stuffer and a sweetly thoughtful Christmas gift. The box is so pretty it doesn’t even need to be wrapped.

Hammond’s Hand-Made Peppermint Candy Canes have been a holiday tradition since 1920. Old-fashioned deliciousness. Hand crooked—the real thing! Made with real sugar and natural flavors.

We love Butternut Mountain Farms because of the quality of their maple syrup. Their Grade A amber maple syrup has a rich maple flavor. It blends well with other flavors in your dishes and is wonderful on pancakes and waffles. It comes in two lovely glass bottles.

L’Abeille Occitane Meil de Chataugbuer (Pure Chestnut-Tree Honey) or Miel D’Oranger (Pure Orange Blossom Honey) French Honey because it is hard to believe that honey could taste that good!

With Jamnation Jams, authentic French cooking meets fresh California fruit in the best possible combinations of flavors. Their jam is intensely flavorful. Jamnation’s amazing spreads include Apricot Up in the Morning (blanched apricot jam with almond essence) and Berry Mature (bluetta blueberry with elderflower essence).

Seasoning
Esprit du Sel Island of Ré Fleur de Sel
Natural & Hand-Harvested Salt. Literally, the Flower of Salt, Esprit du Sel’s fleur de sel is made from the finest white salt skimmed from the thin surface layer of the salt pans in summer, and known as the crème de la crème of French sea salt

Whole Spice Co. of Napa Valley grinds and blends their own spices as needed, so they are always fresh when you purchase them. And, fresh spices make all the difference in any dish. We recommend their Asado Seasoning for a rub on meat and poultry. And, also their Jerk Seasoning, a pungent and very aromatic spice rub that is associated with Jamaican-style barbecuing.

India Tree Pepper Rainbow Premium Peppercorns is a colorful mix of Tellicherry, Malaysian Cream Label white, Madagascar green, and pink peppercorns from the island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean. It makes an especially festive display in a pepper mill at the table. Use it exactly as you would black pepper.

India Tree Traditional Mulling Spices bring warmth, aroma, and the good cheer of mulled cider into your home. These mulling spices are an aromatic mix of only the finest allspice, cloves, orange peel, and cinnamon.

Flavorings
Tomato Paste in a Tube from San Marzano because San Marzano tomatoes, and the tomato paste that is made from them, are almost universally considered to be the best-tasting tomatoes in the world. You get concentrated tomato flavor just from one squeeze.

Wineforest Wild Foods Dried Porcini Mushrooms Porcini Powder, Porcini Salt, Fennel Salt, and Fennel Pollen Rub. Wineforest Wild Foods maintains a love and respect for the forest ecosystem from which the mushrooms grow. These Northern California based foragers sell to top chefs in the Bay Area and beyond.

Booze
We carry quite a selection of individual bottles of alcohol. Everything from Bulleit Bourbon to De Saronno, Grande Marnier to Glenlivet, Bombay to Tanqueray Gin, and  Schmirnoff Vodka to Bailey’s Irish Cream. Grab a few bottles, or select them to go with a print-out of a favorite cocktail from our blog, The Cocktail Post.

You could also use these ideas to put together a fantastic, custom gift basket for that foodie who has (almost) everything!
