  • Stocking Stuffers

    I know Mark mentioned a few gifts in today's blog post, but does anyone have any other ideas for stocking stuffer type gifts? (i.e., affordable, yet highly desirable and useful)

    First couple categories to come to mind are (fittingly, seeing as how they're from the post):

    -- cookbooks
    -- other kitchen supplies (besides a knife and fermentation vessel)
    -- snack foods (besides the Tanka bars)
    -- herb supplies (think dried thyme, etc.)
    -- clothing (Injinji socks for VFF)
    -- other books in general

    I'm intrigued by the snack food aspect. I mean, of course there are options for dark chocolate and jerky, dried fruits, etc., but anything else?

    Instead of a knife go for a meat cleaver. Very handy if you are going to buy cheap slabs of meat.

    Fishing gear.

    Sharpening stone for keeping your kitchen knives sharp and effective.

    Camping gear.

      i think just about anything for pantry could be great. high quality olive oil or coconut oil. heck, our fermented CLO costs $84 per bottle, which would be an *awesome* gift to get in an on-going way.

        For those interested in 'going native':
        --books on foraging, tracking, trapping, hunting, animal behavior
        --topographic maps of favorite forage and hunting regions
        --Swiss Army knife

        For those interested in cooking 'the old way':
        --guide to building alternative cooking devices, such as solar ovens, hot boxes, and mud ovens
        --instructions in using the aforementioned cooking devices

        For the athletes:
        --lifting gloves
        --fitness clothing---tee shirts, socks, ace bandage or 'stretchy' braces
        --water containers for the trail or running path

        For me:
        --a kindle pre-loaded with Taubs, Wolf, Mark's books, etc,

          Uh, how big of a stocking do you greedy people hang up? Unless it's a small mass-market paperback, I don't see how you can fit a cook-book in a stocking. Or a kindle.

              no need to be rude. Some people use the term "stocking stuffer" loosely.

              also I think the kindle was a joke.

                Elwyne: The kindle wasn't a joke. I gave up hoping for a pony a long time ago. Its the well loaded kindle that I want now. If need be I will hang a super large industrial size panty hose--both legs--to get one.

                      Well we celebrate the solstice instead of Christmas and then my brother couldn't get away from work next week so he came home this week instead so we did our holiday last night. I got 3 new spatulas, all different styles! and 2 garlic presses. One works REALLY well and the other one not so much so that worked out alright! Plus a couple tins of some tasty tasty pu-erh tea. Yum! Happy solstice to me!

                          HA! I was gonna say .... uh, I don't periquin was joking about the kindle!

                          Likely too late by now, but how about an MDA/Grok shirt? I know there are more colors besides black now.
