Giveaway: Stocking Stuffers for the Ultimate Foodie

If you’re anything like me, you’re in full-on holiday scramble mode. I don’t know how I ended up here. Every year, I intend to start purchasing Christmas gifts in August. Up until about 2007, that’s what I did. By December, I was sitting back cool, calm and collected while everyone else rushed around.

But somehow, in the last few years, life has gotten more and more intense, and I am now one of the many rushing around. I don’t exactly love it, I have to tell you!

One thing I’ve always struggled with, no matter when I start buying gifts, is stocking stuffers. With that in mind, I’ve put together my favorites in a Stocking Stuffer gift guide for the Ultimate Foodie in your life.

Small enough to easily fit into a stocking, but big enough to elicit a “Wow!”, each product is selected with your favorite foodie in mind.

From Bonne Maman preserves to beautifully crafted salt and pepper mills from Peugeot, there are some great ideas to spark your gift-giving genius.

And lucky lucky y’all, I’m giving them ALL away to ONE lucky Bluebonnets & Brownies reader!

 

Let me tell you a little about each product:

Bonne Maman Preserves are crafted in France. Golden Plum Mirabelle preserves are their newest offering, and a delicious one at that. Last month I created a savory recipe using Golden Plum Mirabelle; Golden Plum, Port, and Mushroom Pork Chops, but this succulent jam is just as at-home on a toasted English muffin. The signature gingham lid is one that any foodie knows, and would be thrilled to receive.

Peugeot, more well-known as a car company, has actually been making pepper and coffee mills for much longer; since the 1800s. They’re regarded as the best in the business when it comes to pepper mills. The incredible construction of each part means they’re considered nearly unbreakable. Each peppercorn is broken in half by the mechanisms before it is ground down, resulting in more even grinding and pepper flakes (or in this set’s case, salt too) that are just the right size. The Vendome set in chocolate is classic and refined, with a deep chocolate wood accented by solid construction acrylic. I was in love at first grind.

King Arthur Flour is mentioned often on Bluebonnets & Brownies. Their commitment to flour consistency and quality is parallel to none other, in my opinion. The same can be said for the tools and pans they sell. The Pizza Tool Kit comes with a cheese grater, pizza cutter, and cheese knife in a handy storage pouch. I love that they’re stored together, and keep easily in one spot thanks to the pouch. They’re all BPA free, and I find that the cheese grater fits perfectly in my hand.

I think it’s been well documented on B&B how much we like tea in this household. Having an Englishman in-house lends toward that tendency. We’ve found a deep love for Davidson’s Organic Tea. We like all the flavors, but the Holiday teas are simply perfect for this time of year. Full of wintery spices like clove and cinnamon, they’re exactly what you want when it’s snowing outside. That they’re organic is icing on the proverbial teacake!

Last, but certainly not least, Donsuemor Madeleines. Classier than a box of chocolates in my opinion, they pair perfectly with the tea. The sampler box provides a little taste of every delight Donsuemor has to offer (my favorite are the chocolate dipped!), and come on, who doesn’t love a light, spongy cookie with their tea?

    My parents had a liquor store, so I always loved getting minibottles in my stocking, I think my favorite was the year I got rum and made hot buttered rum to go with Christmas brunch.

  2. says

    Diamonds! ;) My husband likes to sneak the big stuff into my stocking. Great ideas and wonderful giveaway! Merry Christmas to you and your husband!

  3. Bonnie K says

    Dolls! I started collecting at a young age. One year it was a wooden doll. Another, it was a Mother Goose doll. Next, basket weave doll. Trolls. Miniature ones for my doll house. It was always a wonderful surprise.

  4. Lisa S says

    Nougat cookies! And molasses horse treats that are also edible for humans (homemade and I eat to much of them before they even get near the horses)

  5. says

    A beautiful silver swan ring holder from my mother-in-law last year. Well, now I need some rings from my husband this year. hahaha….

  6. Allison says

    Walmart giftcards are always nice because you can get almost anything you need there! And of course, chocolate, such as my favorites…m&m’s, hershey’s bars, reese’s, etc.

  7. Ken G. says

    Almond Roca! My grandparents lived near the factory so we’d get tubs of unwrapped “seconds” in our stocking. Holy crap we had it good!

  8. Cindy says

    About 20 yrs ago my wonderful husband gave me a beautiful green tourmaline ring. It is emerald cut with tiny diamonds surrounding each side. I know it was a sacrifice for him to buy for me and I’ll always appreciate him for that.

  9. Dawn DeVinney says

    Best thing I ever got was an ORANGE… My mom always put an orange in the toe of our stocking… one of my fondest Christmas memories is getting to the orange in my stocking, peeling and eating it surrounded by family and with Christmas Cheer in the air! :)

  10. Christi P. says

    One of my favorite things to get as kids was the Lifesaver Christmas book…that was back in the day when they still had Butter Rum lifesavers!!

  11. Katie says

    Touchscreen gloves. I wear them all the time and they make it so I don’t have to take my gloves off when I want to use my phone!

  12. Denise O says

    Christmas socks. Santa’s challenge every year is to find the funnest socks for each of us. The “winner” gets to clean up the kitchen after breakfast. Win-Win for me!

  13. Mike says

    My favorite stocking stuffer is a gift certificate or a paid debit card; that way I can pick out the gift I really want!

  14. Allison C says

    I always gave lifesaver storybooks to people when I was younger, but never received one. For some reason I would never buy myself one (had limited allowance $), but would be disappointed every year when I wouldn’t get one back. One year I got one and I was SOOO happy. Everyone just looked at me funny, but for some reason it really meant a lot…tasted good too.

  15. Anne says

    The best thing I ever got in my stocking was a little notebook my spouse had filled with quotes and private notes for me.

  16. Kim Catapano says

    The best stocking gift that I received was when I was little and it was a small polly pocket jeweled house compact.

  17. April says

    Actually, Santa has only visited my house once, when I was 5… and he brought me a calculator. :/ Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. Michelle says

    When I was young, my grandma used to put the more expensive shampoo that my mom wouldn’t buy for me in my stocking. :) I was thrilled!

  19. Melissa says

    My favorite gift that I found in my stocking was a set of earrings with three different pairs, every one of them a different shade of blue.

  20. Sharon says

    We don’t get too carried away with stocking gifts,usually socks or gift cards and things like that. My favorite though is lotion or bath gel from Bath and Body Works–that stuff all smells so good!

  21. Laura says

    I don’t think we got stockings but we got socks (haha) mom took us to see Santa every year at church and he passed out little bags filled with candy and an orange. Those simple days are long past but I do hope someone gives me socks this year!

  22. says

    Gosh, do you know , since I grew up no one has ever made a stocking up for me at Christmas! It is always me filling up everyone elses! I would say it may have been a pair of hoop earrings that I had for along time. It would be nice to have a stocking again… even if I am grown up! <3
    If I could choose what to put in it, it would be gold or sterling hoop earrings, natural trail mix, dark chocolate with orange or mint or toffee, gift cards, and a gift sert to a local spa for a spa lunch and a massage, mani and pedi!
