Hand-cut Snowflake Marshmallows (pictured above; $8) make pretty, whimsical toppers for mugs of hot chocolate — perfect for those who have zero chance of real flurries in their Christmas forecast and for those who’ll need to warm up with some cocoa after a day of sledding.

Warming up post-sledding, binge-watching TV in pajamas … there are so many winter activities that would be improved by cocktails made in a Hammered Mini Cocktail Shaker ($16).

Not only are Kate Weiser’s luxe layered candy bars some of the best you’ll ever eat, but her artful decoration with edible paints has gorgeous results. The seasonal Holiday Candy Bar ($6) layers peppermint bark with cocoa cookie crunch, dark chocolate ganache and peppermint marshmallow.

Revlon’s Parfumerie Nail Enamels are scented with foodie-friendly aromas like Chocolate Truffle, Bordeaux, Apricot Nectar and Orange Blossom (pictured).

Upgrade your favorite foodie’s s’mores game with an Artisan S’mores Kit ($20), available in nostalgic flavors like snickerdoodle, dulce de leche and peppermint.

Who wouldn’t want their home to smell like gingerbread, snickerdoodle or iced pumpkin cookies without even having to turn on their oven? Cookie Cutter Candles ($14) make that olfactory dream a reality with the simple lighting of a wick.

Snowglobe Sugar Cookies ($6) decorated by Portland, Oregon-based stationers Quill & Fox are pretty as a picture.

This Copper Party Cup ($16) is a more substantial, grown-up version of the classic party cup from beer pong days of yore.

Tradition says that the first holiday reveler to spot the Pickle Ornament ($7) on the tree Christmas morning will get rewarded with an extra gift or good luck in the year to come.
