Foodie Stocking Stuffers: cookie stamps and ice cream sandwich makers!

Do you have family traditions for stocking stuffers? I tend to find stocking stuffers a bit of a challenge some years. It can be hard to find small items that are affordable and also tailored to the gift recipient’s tastes. Although I do love receiving the standard boxes of candy, hand lotions, lottery tickets, and the like, it is also great to receive something I can put to good use in my kitchen! Personalized gifts are always the greatest (click here to view Uncommon Goods’ selection of personalized gifts)!

When it comes to stocking stuffer options for the foodies in your life, there are so many options to consider! There are gadgets and gizmos galore that can be a great gift for a food loving friend or family member, and I have two fantastic ones to share with you today from Uncommon Goods.

Uncommon Goods I Love You cookie stamp

First: a cookie stamp! It’s the perfect size to fit inside a stocking, and it is adorable to boot! To make stamped cookies (I made a batch of peanut butter ones), you simply roll your cookie dough into balls the size of a golf ball, flatten them by hand slightly on your cookie sheet, then press the stamp into the center. Voila! A previously simple cookie is now made 100% more adorable with a simple tool. “I love you” is one of the options, as well as “eat me” and “homemade” – a set of three could be an amazing gift package! The stamp base is made from silicone and can be removed from the handle to wash, which is definitely a great feature.

Since we’re on the topic of cookies, how about another gadget that will turn your finished baked treats into a frozen delight? These mini ice cream sandwich makers are seriously adorable, and I know there are a couple of women in my family that would get a kick out of finding these in their Christmas stockings. The pack comes with three sandwich makers: a circle, a heart, and a star. The process of assembling the cookie sandwiches is pretty simple: you stamp through a cookie with the maker, pull the plunger out about an inch to allow room for ice cream, scoop the ice cream of your choice into the well, and then stamp another cookie on top! When you push the plunger out, you are left with a precious little ice cream sandwich – 2-3 bites at the most! So, that means you can eat more than one, right???

I really like that Uncommon Goods features unique designs and hand crafted gifts. When you look through their site, you are certain to find something completely special. I can’t tell you how many things I have bookmarked as gift ideas….things I have never seen in a retail store! It is amazing to know that HALF of what they sell on the site is made by hand, and one third of their goods incorporate recycled or upcycled materials. Pretty cool, right?

  • Thank you so much for recommending this website! Although I didn’t purchase the items you mentioned, I found an absolutely adorable state-themed tea towel that I know my sister-in-law will love, and I’m eyeing a few things for either future gifts or myself, haha. Happy holidays! 🙂

  • So glad I haven’t started Christmas shopping yet! This site has adorable stuff. My mom loves to bake so I finally have a starting place. Thanks for the heads up!
