Skip the cake pop maker.

Japanese Snacks Subscription Box (subscribe here)
For those who love interesting snacks that can’t be found locally, this subscription box is one of the best for international munchies.
Pretty Espresso Spoons (find them here in choice of 4 colors)
I never knew that adorable miniature spoons were missing from my life until my husband gave them to me in my stocking one Christmas. We use them for so many different things – to stir our hot beverages, to taste what we’re cooking, and we also use them to eat ice cream or our desserts when we want to feel extra fancy. These spoons come in a set of 6 in your choice of 4 gorgeous colors.
Gourmet Sea Salt Sampler (find it here)
Experimenting with different salts can be something a food lover might overlook (or at least I have… I mean, Tropical Hibiscus salt? YES!), so this is practically a sure winner.
Fancy Infused Maple Syrup Sampler (buy one for you and one for a friend)
Friends don’t let friends use anything but real maple syrup, and this sampler of infused syrups (Rye Whiskey Barrel-Aged, Cardamom, Cinnamon+Vanilla and Elderberry) will be well-received by any food lover. Use them on pancakes or waffles, stir them into hot breakfast cereals, drizzle over desserts, or make some mean sticky buns or cinnamon rolls. Comes packaged in a pretty little box perfect for gift-giving.
Try The World Subscription Box (sign up here)
Yeah, another sub box, but I love these things and love receiving them as gifts. Try the World creates themed boxes based on specific cultures and is an awesome way to introduce someone (or yourself) to some new tastes. The boxes contain an assortment of treats, snacks, and/or cooking ingredients as well as a card full of info and suggested recipes.
Popcorn Air Popper (find it here)
Trust me, I hate uni-tasker kitchen gadgets as much as the next person, but I’ll make an exception for this one. If you have a friend who loves to snack but also loves to count calories, then chances are they would love to have a hot air popper in their kitchen. This makes popcorn that is only 30 calories per 2-cup serving.
Watermelon Tap Kit (get it here)
This kit will let you turn a watermelon (or pumpkin, etc) into a fruity drink dispenser. For that friend who likes to throw perfectly-themed totally DIY parties (also the friend we kinda hate, because who has time for that??)
Donut & Cookie Warming Mug (getcha one here)
This nifty mug has a platform on top for keeping your sweet treats warm.
