    Mocktail Club

    I've tired almost every flavor of Mocktail Club's drinks and I am super happy to have them as a staple in my home. I have plenty of drinkers and non-drinkers in my life and these are a simple go-to to make sure everyone gets a nice, adult drink.

    Promising review: "The shipping was fast and these have an awesome taste. I've tried tons of kombucha but often hate how much space the bottles take up in my fridge — enter Qula! What a great idea to have kombucha whenever I want without a bunch of glass bottle waste! These are delicious and convenient." —vics

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    10. A 10-pack box of Steeped California blend coffee with a brewing method that'll be exactly like tea, meaning it'll be loved by anyone who prefers a "no muss no fuss" system when it comes to making their morning cuppa.

    Coffee inside tea bag beside mug

    Every bag of Steeped coffee is hand roasted in small batches that are "ethically sourced directly from farmers" and they require no machine...just a coffee mug! BTW, the filter is non-GMO, fully compostable, and made with reusable materials.

    Get it from Steeped for $15+ (available in two sizes).

    11. A box of cocktail flavored Jelly Belly candies — a stocking surprise that's gonna delight adults who feel like they could use a drink by 9 am after getting through another frantic Christmas Eve. These aren't alcoholic, but they're probably gonna appreciate the placebo affect.

    Box with five assorted jelly candies

    BTW, this includes pina colada, peach bellini, pomegranate cosmo, mojito and strawberry daiquiri Jelly Bellies.

    Promising review: "These are delicious! The box they came in was beautiful and had each flavor in their own compartment and the list of flavors inside the lid of the box. The Mojito (my favorite) has a lime flavor with a hint of mint. There's no alcohol but these are great as a treat for yourself or to give as a gift!" —Mrs. H

    Get them from Amazon for $8.90.

    12. A bag of Rachael Ray's Soup Bones for dogs who have been soup-er good all year long. No coal for Fido this year!

    Pack of dog treats

    Promising review: "I have a very picky dog who also like to snack all day. I gave her one of the chicken flavored soup bones today.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.13 (available in two flavors).

    13. A box of Liquid Death (a ferociously funny sparkling water) to help keep them hydrated when you're pretty sure they've been living off of eggnog all week long.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed,

    I received THREE separate boxes of Liquid Death for my birthday this year because I talk about this stuff so often, whether people want to listen or not. This is marketing genius, I'm a sucker for fun packaging, and the water is...TO DIE FOR. I also have...lots of their merch. Lots of it.

    Get a 12-pack from Liquid Death for $15.99.

    14. A Kickbar sampler pack — a new treat for anyone who has every coffee machine and bean around, and yet they still only want coffee for Christmas.

    Three Kickbar packets on top of coffee beans

    The pack includes 12 Kickbars in cocoa, latte, and coffee. Some bars can be eaten plain and others are intended to heat up and drink, like a suuuper thick hot chocolate. The melty kind is really and truly one of my favorite treats. Caffeinated candy (that's also vegan, dairy, gluten, and nut free!) shouldn't taste this good but, trust me, it DOES.

    Promising review: "These are absolutely delicious!! I LOVE the new cocoa flavor. It's perfect for busy mornings or an afternoon pick me up. I 10/10 recommend this to everyone I know!" —Adrienne

    Get it from Kickbar for $17.

    Small packages of dried edamame

    Promising review: "These are pretty much the perfect snack. High, HIGH protein (20 grams per package), low fat, low sodium, HIGH fiber (about 80% of a day's recommended, IIRC), and they taste great. What more could you want? They're pretty dry. Have some water handy." —Rockinghorse Winner

    Get them from Amazon for $12.91.

    16. A set of four gingerbread house mug buddies — a charming and deliciously ~homey~ gift perfect for your most festive friends.

    Uncommon Goods

    The only question is ~witch~ one should you keep for yourself??

    Get them from Uncommon Goods for $20.

    17. A pack of four RED dark chocolate bars (made with no added sugar) to gift to folks who've gotta watch their sugar intake, but still want a sweet treat over the holidays.

    Person laying on grass eating chocolate

    I have a bowl of candy in my apartment and there is always, alllways, a bar or two of RED chocolates. I like having a sugar-free treat around for times when I want a chocolate fix without a sugar slump later. These definitely do the trick!

    Promising review: "This is amazing chocolate! We LOVE RED chocolates at our house! If you have not tried them then you are really missing out! It pairs amazingly well with wine! If you must quarantine then you NEED RED chocolates!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

    18. A pack of eight blooming lollipops — they can literally plant the sticks in the ground and grow flowers after finishing up each spiffy sucker.

    Several small suckers with herbs around them
    Uncommon Goods

    How does the planting work? The lollipop sticks have seeds inside! Once the receiver finishes their treat, they can plant the sticks horizontally and cover them in soil, give them some sun and water, and watch their plants grow! Each set includes unique flavor combinations that grow different plants: sage/marshmallow (grows sage), lavender/lemongrass (grows lavender), peach/marigold (grows marigold), strawberry/basil (grows basil), champagne/rose (grows rosetta cosmo), rosemary/mint (grows mint), lemon/thyme (grows thyme), and vanilla/hibiscus (grows baby blue eyes).

    Promising review: "I like to garden and my grand-nephews like coming to the garden and picking plants they like. These lollipops are a great way to get them started planting, watering, and watching!" —Lori

    Get them from Uncommon Goods for $20.

    19. A tea tin for fans of The Mandalorian who eat, drink, and breathe Baby Yoda.

    Tin with round tea bags and baby Yoda from The Mandalorian on case

    Excuse me, Grogu. BTW, this has a whopping 36 tea bags inside.

    Get it from BoxLunch for $15.90.

    20. A box of Verb energy bars that'll be a hit with people who need a pick-me-up but aren't into coffee. These have as much caffeine as an espresso — without the post-coffee slump and/or jitters.

    The Verb Energy bars in the salted peanut butter, vanilla late, coconut chai, and lemon raspberry flavors

    Wish you could have a salted peanut butter, maple blueberry, lemon raspberry, coconut chai, cocoa, vanilla latte...that's chewable? Here ya go! You can even try them for free (just pay $3.95 for shipping) and see what you think!

    Promising review: "I struggled for a long time to find something to fuel me before my early morning workout. I'm up early, roll out of bed and work out before the day gets away from me. Thankfully a friend recommended Verb bars! They are perfect for me! Love the bars, this company, and their customer service." —Leah

    Get a box from Verb Energy for $22+ (available in multiple flavors and bundles).

    21. A mix of six holiday Oreo cookies with some festive chocolate "frosting" that even Scrooge would love to see in his stocking.

    Get them from Simply Chocolate for $22.99.

    22. A bag of Wilde chips, made from chicken — a powerhouse protein present for carnivorous kids and adults who aren't too ~chicken~ to try a rather unique treat.,

    I. Love. These. Chips. I have several bags of these, all different flavors, in my apartment right now because I can't ever be without them. The texture is exactly what you'd expect from a classic potato chip, without the grease or feeling gross after. These chicken chips are wild, and one of my new favorite snack discoveries. Check out all the available flavors aaaand then get them all.

    Get a bag of six from Wilde for $29.99 (or subscribe and save for $26.99).

    23. A pack of mints that'll help add a breath of fresh air to your family dinner when Aunt Meredith decides it's time to start talking politics the minute she's finished her pot roast.

    Three square mint tins with small pill-sized mints on table around them

    Each pack comes with 45 mints.

    Promising review: "It is so difficult to find mints without artificial sugars in them these days. Those artificial sugars cause my husband to get migraine headaches almost immediately. Not so with these mints! His feedback on them is that they have long-lasting results, don't give him headaches, and have a very enjoyable flavor. Thank you for these!" —Frenzied Mom

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99 (available in four flavors).

    24. A 12-pack of crunchy cheese bars for anyone who insists that cheese could be the only food group and we'd all be just fine. After trying one of these you may even think they're right.

    Promising review: "I gave these away as Christmas gifts (a personalized mug with goodies inside and this was one of the goodies). Everyone loved it and wanted to buy more for themselves. I will definitely get this again. It does not take very long to dissolve in a hot drink." —Sheree Collins

    Get it from Amazon for $22.

    26. A 10-box pack of Pocky — this is the kind of stocking surprise that'll make anyone wanna ~stick~ with you forever.

    Pocky stick box

    Promising review: "I love Pocky. Not only are they a delicious snack, but they're small and lite (assuming you don't eat whole boxes by yourself). They make great stocking stuffers for Christmas, as well as small gifts or hors d'oeuvres for special occasions like parties and whatnot!" —Aether

    27. A four-flavor pack of sparkling juice you can give to the people who always make you feel ~bubbly~ inside with happiness.

    This pack includes blackberry, clementine, apple, and grapefruit.

    Promising review: "I love these sparking juices! They're the perfect size to keep plenty icy cold in the fridge. The juices taste great too. We LOVE the berry, but the tangerine and the grapefruit are also superb. The apple taste like, well, apple, so you can't go wrong. These have natural flavors and no lousy artificial sweeteners OR sugar — just the natural fruit sugars. What a great way to refresh! Strongly recommended." —TheBigGuy

    29. A peppermint chow package that'll be so fun to snack on your boo just might say, "We were pepper-mint to be" after a handful of this delicious gift.

    Banana chips inside mason jar

    Promising review: "I don't often take the time to write reviews but these snacks are worth the effort. I can't get enough! When you have a restricted diet it's easy to feel deprived when it comes to snacks or treats. These 'chips' are so crunchy and delicious I don't feel like I'm missing a thing. What a great idea to disguise banana chips as a savory snack!!" —VLow

    Get them from Amazon for $24.72.

    I've tried all three of these (I'm a sucker for maple syrup) and can confidently say I'd stuff these in any stocking.

    Promising review: "I always thought syrup was just syrup. Nope! Maple Craft is the best tasting maple syrup you will ever try. And don't just use it on pancakes. My favorite indulgence is with vanilla ice!" —Marty

    Get them from Uncommon Goods for $29.

    32. A bag of brown sugar candied bacon that'll be the savory-meets-sweet treat they were too naughty to ask Santa for. Luckily, they have you.


    Promising review: "This product is amazing! I have tried other brand names and they've got nothing like this! The smell alone is really good. I took a nice piece and let it settle in my mouth. There's a nice mix of brown sugar and bacon. The meat itself was nice and tender, NOT DRY like other brands. I like my jerky a bit juicy and this one is by far the. It's the best bacon jerky I have ever tried! I super recommend this and will be buying more for gifts!" —Jezrael

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    33. And finally, a pack of Christmas suckers for those of us who think a stocking ~sucks~ without candy inside.
