Stocking Stuffers: Ideas From Your Local Herb and Spice Shop

by Old Town Spice Shop on December 17, 2018

Can you believe that Christmas is next week? If that fills you with a slight sense of dread, rather than jubilation, you might still be working through your holiday gift list. It’s okay. We totally get it. Here at Old Town Spice Shop, your local herb and spice shop, we understand that there’s a lot to do during the holiday season and gift-buying is just one of many tasks.

We also know what’s likely at the very bottom of your gift list: stocking stuffers. The “Oh, I’ll just grab those while I’m out” mentality often results in stocking stuffers being a last-minute scramble. We can help. We have the best, most unique, tasty, and aromatic stocking stuffers that you could ever desire. Check it out:

Blends and Seasonings

One of the most fun things about our spices is blending them together to make new and delicious flavor combinations. There are different blends for every type of cuisine—from Italian, to pho, to cajun, to popcorn seasonings and dip mixes. We do our best to create our blends right in the store, making them as fresh as possible. And our blends and seasonings all come in cute bags or bottles – perfect for stocking stuffers!  

Brewhouse Sauces

We’re not your typical herb and spice shop. We offer an array of hot sauces, mustards, and easy-to-make marinades and dressings for sale online and in our spice store in Fort Collins, CO. Some of our favorites include our Brewhouse Sauces. These are unique hot sauces, mustards, and BBQ sauces, like Jack Slade’s Revenge, crafted using bock from Gilded Goat Brewing, a recent gold medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival, or our unique Noco Beer Jelly, which makes the perfect beer lover’s gift. Any of our tasty sauces would make a delicious and lovely addition to your pile of stocking stuffers.

Hopped Up Coffee

We love a steaming hot cup of coffee here at Old Town Spice Shop; that and a tasty local brew, so we decided to combine the two! Our unique line of Hopped Up Coffee is a single-origin coffee, blended with Cascade hops and various malted barleys to add the texture and sweetness of different beer styles. A bag of Hopped Up Coffee is the perfect stocking stuffer! Not only is the bag the perfect size, but you can pull it out, open it up, and enjoy a hot cup of joe while you finish opening presents. Now that sounds like a win-win to us.

These are just a few stocking stuffer ideas.
