Nuts.com has just about any type of nut you can think of and so much more! Nut flours, nut butters, dried fruits, and an extensive selection of candies. But what’s really helpful is they let you completely customize a tray of nuts and other goodies like dried fruit (organic options too), and candies, so you can really tailor your gift to individual tastes. That’s genius!
For those looking for party favors or themed gifts, they list their candy options by color.

Pink Himalayan Salt Glasses from The Spice Lab
Be advised–your shot will become saltier the longer it sits inside the glass–so cheers! Simply wipe the glasses dry between each use to avoid a salty brine from forming. Do we need to say it: do not put these glasses in the dishwasher.
Himalayan salt comes from a low-lying region positioned in the first foothills of the Himalayas, over an area of approximately 200 square miles, in the northwest corner of Pakistan. The deposits of salt from ancient oceans are found 1,200 to 2,000 feet below the surface. Carefully mined, this is the highest quality and the purest salt in the world.
Uncommon Goods Himalayan Salt Shot Glass Features:
- Holds 1.2 ounces
- Stands 3″ tall
- Perfect for tequila
- Crafted from Himalayan salt
- Do not place in dishwasher
- Wipe dry after each use. Salt is naturally anti-bacterial.

Povitica, a traditional Croation, walnut-filled bread
Povitica (po-vuh-teet-sa) also known as Potica (po-teet-sa) is a traditional Croatian dessert bread, rolled into layers (think of a Babka–only richer) and traditionally filled with a paste of walnuts and honey–though there are many other fillings used as well.
If you already know that, chances are it’s because you are lucky enough to have a Povitica baker in the family, and if so, you are highly opinionated as to what it should look and taste like. Our family has been blessed with two excellent Povitica bakers who can be cajoled into making at least one at Christmas. But if a Povitica craving hits between major holidays, you can order from one of the following bakeries. It won’t be like what your grandmother or mom makes (nothing ever is!), but it’ll come near to hitting the spot.
Update 2018: Since writing this post, there are even fewer places to buy a povitica online. We once listed four options, now there are only two that we are aware of. You can still depend on Strawberry Hill Bakery, and now the Vermont Country Store sells povitica too.
