10 Ways to Stuff a Stocking Right

A few favourite things we’d be pretty pumped to pull out of an oversized red and green sock. No clementines, please.

1 Naughty and nice folks deserve a drink of Java Blend's Lump of Coal Holiday Blend. This mix of beans from Guatemala, Ethiopia and Sumatra compliments all things rich but won't break the bank. Java Blend Coffee Roasters, 6027 North Street, $13/pound

2 The Marshmallow Fun Company's (totally a thing) Marshmallow Stryker can shoot mini-mallows up to 20 feet. Sweet, sweet revenge has never been more attainable. Sweet Janes, 5431 Doyle Street, $24.99

3 It doesn't get any butter than Bicyclette Publishing's The TIBS Guide To Desserts, an all-access pass into Two If By Sea's baker Tara MacDonald's recipe book. Bookmark, 5686 Spring Garden Road, $20

4 Give the apple of your eye a hand-printed, vintage-inspired tee from Lost Cod Clothing Co. Lost Cod pop-up shop at Uncommon Grounds, 1030 South Park Street, $17-$26

8 Blow your Archie-loving friend's mind with this apocalyptic take on the Riverdale gang, Afterlife with Archie from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla.
