Tru Bee Bourbon Barrel Aged Honey ($12)

Give the gift of a season full of hot toddies. This Tennessee honey is made in bourbon-soaked oak barrels, and though it doesn't actually contain any alcohol, it's practically begging for the addition of a pour.

Guardians Porcelain Jars ($65 each)

Everyone needs a miniature dragon or elephant to keep one's Christmas cookies safe and sound. The small porcelain animals add subtle flair (and useful handles) to these versatile storage jars.

La Bella Jar Label Bands ($16 for a set of three)

Make home pickling a breeze for your DIY-loving friend with a set of reusable, elegant jar labels. No more ambiguous brown liquid camping out in the back of the refrigerator, and the stretchy bands are practically one size fits all.

Dave's Mocha All Natural Coffee Syrup ($12)

There are few things in life that aren't enhanced by the addition of chocolate, and that includes this thick, cold-brew condiment. Perk up a bowl of vanilla ice cream, mix an espresso martini or go with our preferred method: straight off the spoon.

Sherry, Champagne and BBQ Ketchups ($20 for the set)

Add these gourmet condiments to your ketchup short list. Sure, the gift is "for a friend," but you'll be more than willing to help out with any french fry taste tests as long as this trio of sauces is involved.

YIELD Honey Canvas Apron ($185)

Cooking can get messy. Don't let your friend get grease all over a new Christmas sweater by outfitting your pal in this comfortable (and durable) apron.
