Stockings are always so much fun to open on Christmas morning. Whether they’re full of candy, gadgets or even just a pair of crazy socks, sometimes it’s the little gifts that mean so much. Need some ideas? Don’t forget the kitchen! If you have a cook on your holiday list, kitchen tools, gadgets and more make great stocking stuffers. Here are a few of our favorites:


From a beautifully shaped spoon to heat-safe turners or tongs, kitchen utensils are just the right size to tuck into a stocking. Utensils come in nylon, stainless steel and wood and are perfect for everyday cooking, baking and serving.

Food preparation is easy and quick with the right kitchen tools. From a soft-grip ice cream scoop to a new garlic press, these handy tools make great stocking stuffers or last-minute gifts. Other gadgets to consider: zesters, cheese planes or meat thermometers.

Knives are indispensible in the kitchen, and a full complement of sizes and styles can bring efficiency to any food preparation task. Sealed securely in a hard plastic package, a brand new, sharp paring knife, a serrated utility knife, or a Japanese-style Santoku make great stocking-sized gifts.

They are the secret ingredients for many recipes, but did you know that spices lose potency after a few years in the pantry? Send Santa to the spice aisle at the grocery store, and give the cook a fresh array of herbs, spices and seasoning blends – or even exotics like saffron – to make cooking even more flavorful in the new year.

Gift certificates

The ultimate stocking stuffer, gift certificates let recipients have the fun and excitement of choosing their own gifts. It’s pretty much the perfect gift, every time!
