Whether you’re scrambling to find last-minute gifts or want to put a finishing touch on what’s already under the tree, stocking stuffers make for fun, thoughtful and smaller presents to open up and enjoy around Christmas.  

And what are the best types of stocking stuffers, you may ask? Ones you can eat or drink, of course. From condiments and snacks to pre-made cocktails and chocolate, here are 12 options guaranteed to earn you a spot on Santa’s coveted Nice List. 

Bols Cocktail Tubes, Various Prices

The holidays are exciting, but they’re also stressful. Bols’ pre-mixed cocktail tubes make it easy for you to sit back, relax and pour out a drink after a long day of shopping, wrapping and/or baking. All you need is a glass and some ice — that’s it. Cheers to a new year — you’ve almost made it!

Spicewalla Spices and Seasonings, Various Prices

Offering sugar, spice and everything nice, Spicewalla is the one-stop shop for all your seasoning needs. Throw a jar or two into a stocking or splurge on a themed kit so that friends, family members and prospective husbands can benefit from meals with a little bit of enhancement. 

Lebkuchen Cookies, $11.95

This gingerbread-esque spiced cookie is one of Nuremberg’s (and its world-famous Christmas market’s) finest exports. If you can’t sample them in Germany (though you really should), this glazed variety from Wicklein will be the icing on top — quite literally — of a festive holiday season. 

Pop & Bottle Coffee Concentrates, Various Prices

Whether you prefer your morning brew hot, iced or tepid (um, ew), you can craft the perfect cup with just one tablespoon of Pop & Bottle’s concentrated concoction, available in different flavors and sweetness levels. They also pair well with those festive creamers you’ve been holding off until December to try. 

Alpine Chocolate Haus Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips, $6.99-$39.99

We love giving love to smaller businesses, and Michigan-based Alpine Chocolate Haus puts out the best chocolate-covered potato chip in the country (and maybe even the world). The harmonious balance between sweet and salty is actually out of this world, so could this be the best snack in the galaxy? That’s for you to find out. (The answer is yes.) 

Lusty Monk Mustard Gift Box, $34.95

This is one of the best mustards on the market, but you’ve got to be able to handle some serious heat. Asheville-based Lusty Monk offers a variety three-pack that will zhuzh up anything from meat and pretzels to potato chips and sandwiches. But please have a glass of milk on standby — you’ll need it. 

Omsom Sauce Bundle, $55 (Orig. $58)

Not sure what to make for dinner? If you’ve got a protein, veggie and carb, all you need is a packet of Omsom to take any dish from drab to fab. And since we’re fans of the sauces from every Asian region, you’ll want to opt for the bundle so that the lucky gift recipient can try them all and decide on their own favorite. 

Bada Bean Bada Boom Broad Beans, $8.22

Sure, you can find these in many mainstream grocery stores (and airports!), but that doesn’t make them any less delicious. These energy-packed, high-protein broad bean snacks come in a rainbow of flavor options, but our all-time favorite is sriracha: sweet, salty, spicy and with enough coating to induce some serious finger-licking. 

Suntide Canned Mimosas, Various Price Points

It’s a mimosa… in a can… and we’re 100 percent here for it. Skip the investments in orange juice and champagne, and just put these on ice for a Christmas morning indulgence that will make the in-laws more tolerable. 

Gatsby Chocolate Bars and Peanut Butter Cups, Various Price Points

The holidays are not a time to count calories, but Gatsby will get you on the right track with a healthier chocolate that, frankly, doesn’t taste healthy at all. In fact, these are so dangerously delicious and addictive that you’ll likely eat them in excess and not benefit from the reduction in sugar. 

Mike’s Extra Hot Honey, $14.49

If you’ve got hot sauce in your bag (swag) like Beyoncé, consider upgrading it to hot honey. Mike’s goes well on pizza, in tea or drizzled on fried chicken, but its extra hot variety gives foods an even bigger kick. Consider it the perfect gift for those with more adventurous palates. 

Sugarwish Dog Lovers Box, from $23

Don’t forget Fido as you nosh on all of the treats above. While Sugarwish also sells cookies and  candies for humans, it’s their dog lovers box that has pet owners talking (which allows recipients to customize and select from 40 all-natural offerings).
