Holiday Gift Guide: 10 Stocking Stuffers, 2017 Edition

December 17, 2017

Our credo on stocking stuffers: They should be useful, beautiful, and (relatively) affordable. Here are 10 options under $30.

brass scoop gift
Above: A Brass Short Spoon, made by hand in India, can be used as a coffee or tea scoop; $14 from Alder & Co.
fish knife best made
Above: Striking the perfect balance between whimsy and practicality, this stainless steel Fish Knife is made in the Czech Republic and hangs from a red lanyard; $22 at Best Made Co.
delfonics mechanical pencil
Above: I received a wooden mechanical Delfonics Pencil last year as a stocking stuffer and it’s become my writing tool of choice; $10 from Need Supply Co.
east fork pottery mini ceramic bowl
Above: Everyone has something that needs tucking into a bowl, be it edible or otherwise; this Extra Small Potter’s Bowl from East Fork Pottery is a mere three inches wide and 1.5 inches tall; $18.
abeego wax paper food storage wrap
Above: Encourage eco-friendly living by giving Abeego Beeswax Food Wrap; it’s made in Canada of beeswax and cotton cloth and lasts a year or more. A mixed pack of three sizes is $18 at Mur Lifestyle.
shed pantry spices herbs dried
Above: To the cook, give a few pantry herbs and spices from Shed in Healdsburg, California. Among the myriad options are Beet Powder, Charred Eggplant Powder, and Padron Pepper Powder (which makes a regular appearance in my own cooking); prices range from $6 to $15 for individual jars (Shed also offers gift sets).
davines hand cream 2
Above: I discovered Davines Italian toiletries while writing Monday’s story on the new Made hotel in NYC, which stocks the brand in guest rooms; after a quick search I learned the label’s OI Hand Balm has an almost perfect Amazon rating; $20.
zippo brass lighter
Above: It’s a standard Zippo lighter in an elegant shell: The Armor Lighter is housed in tumbled brass and, like all Zippo lighters, is made in Pennsylvania; $27 at Canoe.
true botanicals hydrating mist mini
Above: For the beauty product dilettante, try a stocking-sized Hydrating Mist from Marin, California–based True Botanicals (the spray is a personal favorite); $22.
edible gardens candle collection 2
Above: A collaboration between our friends at Le Feu De L’eau and Edible Gardens LA: a petite Cardamom Votive candle is ideally sized, with a crowd-pleasing scent; $20 at the Primary Essentials.
match waterproof holder stainless
Above: Modeled after a 1900 patent, this Match Safe has a waterproof core and nickel-plated striking surface on the outside; $10 from Schoolhouse Electric.
