This post is the ninth in my series of the 12 Days of Christmas DIYs for A Well Crafted Party. Check in each day for the next 12 Days for new DIY posts. There will be LOTS of free printables to boot! (Check out yesterday’s post: “How to Shuck Oysters – A DIY Oyster Platter“)
I feel like the stocking stuffer is often overlooked… when it can be the BEST part of Christmas. I like giving people items that they’d love, but would rarely buy themselves. I am a big beliver in making sure stocking stuffers are filled with fun little items that the receiver will actually enjoy. They don’t need to be expensive. They don’t need to be important even. But, they should be thoughtful. I’ve put together a list of ideas that would make for fun stocking stuffer ideas for the Foodie or Home Entertainer in your life.
Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Your Favorite Foodie:
- Canned or bottled specialty beverages
- Teas, Coffees, Hot Chocolates, etc.

My Picks for a Foodie-Centered Stocking Stuffers:
This post was not sponsored. I did receive some product to review throughout the year and I chose to include some of those items in this gift guide. Some of the links below are affiliate links.
- Kombucha Wonder Drink: Brew of pasteurized and raw kombucha, both of which contain naturally occuring acids that can help detoxify and energize. Kombucha Wonder Drink was founded by Steve Lee, co-founder of Stash Tea and Tazo. The Kombucha is available in cans and bottles.
- Organic Hot Chocolate Mix: I got mine from Whole Foods Market. Hot Chocolate and teas are fantastic things to purchase and split among many stockings.
- Hello Breath Spray: A sweet little breath freshener with no alcohol and cute packaging!
- Nocciolata Organic Hazelnut Spread: Tasty chocolate-hazelnut spread from Italy. The spread is made from certified organic ingredients– absolutely zero palm oil. Ingredients include dark chocolate from the Antillean Islands, Italian hazelnuts (16%), brown sugar, skim milk and Bourbon vanilla extract. This would be a TREAT in any stocking.
- Hen House Linens Table Runner: House of Linens sells beautiful fabric tabletop accessories such as napkins, table cloths and runners. Table runners are fun to give to people that love to throw parties because it is an easy to store, inexpensive way to change up the table. I got the Garden Gate Ochre table runner. It is a dark gold ochre color and will look beautiful for the holidays!
- “Bite Me” Macaroon Bag: This adorable little grocery/tote bag was ordered from RedBubble. RedBubble has a ton of fabulous designs to choose from and you can have several different items made with the design you choose. Don’t need another grocery bag but need NanLawson‘s Macaroon design in your life? Perhaps it’ll be better on a T-shirt, throw pillow, or phone cover!
- Mini Tabasco Sauces– I love the idea of travel-ready condiments. These mini Tabasco Sauces make me so happy. I think these travel salts from Jacobsen Salt Co. would also be a welcome gift for any foodie!
- Cocktail Napkins – I have an entire container filled with paper goods for parties. I love having a stash of cute cocktail napkins to bring out when needed. These gold Keep Calm and have a Cocktail napkins will be a nice reminder over the crazy holiday season!
