The best foodie stocking fillers is here. I’ve searched high and low to find the best ideas and tastiest treats to suit all the possible stocking fillers, whether it’s for your kids, your favourite vegan, that gluten-free friend or just a little secret Santa present for a colleague at work.
As with my ultimate foodie gift box guide, this best stocking filler for foodies covers some healthy bits and some not so healthy, but Christmas is all about giving, good times and lifetime memories, (not calorie counting or nutritional labels).
Let’s get started with the best foodie stocking fillers…
Pistachio ProvenanceIf you thought all pistachios taste the same (I did), think again. These award-winning pistachios are something else. Sourced directly from artisan farmers, there are grown and harvested in the sun filled family orchards in Greece. They are then dry roasted to a secret recipe that includes a hint of sea salt and citrus. I also love the unique box which has a slider divider separating actual pistachios and empty shells. This little box of pistachio goodness will make any ‘nutter’ very happy. You can check them out here.
Avocado Crackers from BocadosWe all know that one massive avocado lover (me, me, me!) so these Bocados avocado crackers are perfect as they are baked crackers made with avocado. It’s a whole new take on avocados which are known to be packed with good fats. By replacing animal fat, the crackers have a softer texture, helped by the avocado oil they also put in them.The crackers come in three different flavours: Avocado Original, Avocado Chilli and Avocado Black Pepper. They are brilliant with mashed avocado, hummus or on their own! You can check them all out here.
Raw Chocolates from ChocolateehaThese raw chocolate bars are the best chocolate experience without comprise. Made with raw, Peruvian cacao, these are luxurious treats as the ingredients have been chosen with the utmost care and healthy well-being in mind.There are 5 different flavours and each one is better than the other. Think Almonds and Raisins with 72% dark rich chocolate, as well as Goji Berry flavour which is loaded with vitamin C and other nutrients. Each bar costs £2.50 but you can get all 5 for £10 and even better than that, you can get 20% OFF using coupon code XMAS20 which expires on 20/12/17. Check them all out here.
The Santa Special from Rolla GranolaThe perfect gift for granola addicts or those who love a good breakfast packed with Christmas flavours. You’ll find candied orange peel, cranberries, apples, cinnamon and cloves, and it’s packed full of nuts too.It is gluten-free, comes in a nice golden pouch and is available only for a limited period, so make sure you get your bag in time here.
Beautiful Bauble filled with chocolates from MydorableThese handmade French chocolates hide inside a beautiful Christmas bauble and I think this is the perfect stocking filler for a friend or loved one. Everything is handmade in France with different flavours and treats representing both different regions and traditions of France. They have small artisans working for them with only high-quality ingredients and no palm oil. Most of their products are gluten-free and there are a few vegan options too.

They use premium ingredients such as coconut sugar (which has lower GI) and blackstrap molasses (which contains nutrients and vitamins).They come in 2 different sizes and flavours making them perfect for big or small stockings. Spicy sarinade is thick and smokey with a kick of coffee and chipotle chilli to tingle your taste buds. It’s sweet, sticky and moreish.

Bird Wild Coffee
Bird & Wild is shade grown and bird friendly organic coffee. They are on a mission to help protect migrating birds, support the RSPB, and give you a great tasting Fairtrade Organic coffee one cup at a time!They only roasts seasonal coffee and while working in partnership with the RSPB, 6% sales is donated to the RSPB to help give nature a home, as well as being Certified Fairtrade and Organic. My favourite, the Espresso Blend, is balanced cocoa and fruity tanginess with a dark creamy body which is ideal for espresso and milky drinks. Please note, that coffee bought from the Bird & Wild website is straight from the roastery whereas, Bird & Wild coffees bought on Amazon are supplied from Amazon’s UK warehouse, so always buy directly from their website!
Decadent Decaff Coffee Company
One of the best decaff coffee I have ever tasted. Their mission is to introduce the finest decafs from across the world, gently decaffeinated and slow roasted in small batches creating decaf perfection in a cup.Usually the decaff process is quite expensive, so often companies use the cheapest grades of coffees to lower the prices. Decadent decaff is the opposite taking pride in what they do while removing caffeine in a gentle 100% water process that is free of chemicals. They have 5 different strengths ranging from Costa Rican blend, Colombian blend to Indonesian or Ethiopian blend. You can check them all out in here.
The Red Beetle Travelling Food
If you have a foodie in your life who is passionate about Italian food, The Red Beetle Travelling Food Company is THE best choice. You have to try their organic Hazelnut Spread. Made of 100% organic Hazelnuts, this nut butter takes my nut butter obsession to the next level.I would also recommend the Altalanga Organic Toasted Hazelnuts, their organic cold pressed chocolate which is gluten free and vegan or Altalanga Organic Toasted Hazelnuts which are part of their vegan Christmas hamper. You can check it all out in here.
