Foodie Stocking Stuffers for Christmas

Foodie Stocking Stuffers for Christmas

Surprise the food enthusiasts on your list with thoughtful stocking stuffers!

Of course, it’s easy for Santa to know what you’re friends and family want most for Christmas. But if your loved ones are also foodies, we just so happen to be experts on filling their Christmas with joy!

Some of the best gifts come in small packages. That’s why we at Abbot Kinney First Fridays are crazy about stocking stuffers! These little treats are a great way to demonstrate thoughtfulness this Christmas.

First on the list: Spices! Checkout a nearby spice shop for specialty spices and seasonings that will bring life and an extra kick to any meal. For those who love to cook, this will be an appreciated gift.


Second on the list: A gift card to their favorite restaurant! This may initially seem less than sentimental. However, if you happen to know what they would enjoy most, this may be a perfect gift! This could even initiate a “date night” for a special someone recipient.

AKFF foodie scene ideas

Third on the list: A subscription to a meal kit delivery service! These are great options for those who are looking to branch out with their cooking; and by no means are they reserved for lazy cooks. They are great resources for new flavors and cooking techniques and full of great recipe ideas!
