Opening up stockings on Christmas morning has to be one of our favourite holiday traditions – because while big presents under the tree can often steal the show, sometimes it’s the little thoughtful stocking stuffers that can mean the most. If you’re looking for the perfect stocking stuffer for the foodie on your list, read on for our top picks that are sure to make their day.
Pay Chen's Sacha-Ish Savoury Chili Condiment
There’s a good chance your foodie has seen this “it” condiment all over their social feeds this holiday season, and for good reason! This savoury chili condiment provides extra oomph to just about everything it’s drizzled on. From eggs to dumplings to sandwiches, it adds a welcome hit of spice and umami. Developed in collaboration between food expert Pay Chen and Cook with Zing, Sacha-ish is inspired by some of Pay’s favourite hot pot dipping sauces like shāchá jiàng. We have a feeling it’ll taste great drizzled over your turkey dinner, too.
Blume Reishi Hot Cacao Blend
There’s hot chocolate, and then there’s adaptogenic hot chocolate made with reishi, AKA the mushroom of immortality. If you’re unfamiliar, reishi is a popular stress-soothing adaptogen that helps you fight off the blues and improve your sleep cycle. Paired with serotonin-boosting cacao, it’s a match made in hot bevy heaven that makes for the perfect stocking stuffer.
