Not long ago I wrote about Trudeau water bottles. If you missed that post, and are in the market for a water bottle (also a good stocking stuffer idea, especially if you're filling up one of those big stockings!) you can find it here. Today I'm going to write about their kitchen gadgets. More specifically, I'm going to write about the fun of filling a Christmas stocking up with these little beauties.
You can get as creative as you would like, and I know some of you are very creative (trust me, I applaud you). :) My ideas was to make a kitchen-themed stocking for a good friend of mine who likes to cook. Every year we exchange small gifts, just to acknowledge that we appreciate one another. Though the gifts are small, we take extra care to ensure they are also gifts the other person will very much like. This year I'm making a themed stocking for her, and inside will be these cool kitchen items from Trudeau.
My personal favorite addition to the stockign will be the Trudeau Cookie Cutters, shaped like stars. These cutters come in different shapes and are a huge hit with the kids, great for making party favors, and they're fun to use for when you're in the mood to create a lovely treat.
Set of Five Star Cookie Cutters
Festive stars are one of the most celebrated symbols of the holidays. Ideal for cookie dough, fondant, pastries, shortbread or creating decorative fruit slices, this all-star gift pack of 5 cookie cutters are made of stainless steel with a fashionable coral color finish. The fine edges make it easy for slicing and expert decorating. Cookie cutters conveniently nest together for compact storage. SRP $11.99
The Daisy Wine Charms are sure to be welcome for those who like to pretty up their stemware or their table setting. Trudeau offers different varieties to ensure everyone on the list gets one that they will like. I think my friend will most like the International Wine Charms, so in her stocking they go!
Daisy Wine Charms
The perfect floral bouquet to add entertaining charm while easily differentiating one guest’s wine glass from another. Twelve tastefully colored blooms made of soft and durable silicone to fit any sized stemware. Simply wrap the flexible tail around the stem and press-fit flower to hold.

International Wine Charms
Easy to identify International Wine Charms are great conversation starters and a perfect sophisticated touch to at-home entertaining.

These stainless steel charmers are equipped with a soft-touch backing to protect delicate glassware. SRP $11.99
The zest grater isn't something I'd normally think to buy, but once you have one you just love it and use it all of the time. This one is great too because it has a retractable handle that makes it super easy to store. My friend is going to love this because she zests all of the time!
Perfect for adding citrus-packed flavor or a light garnish, the Trudeau Zest Grater features a retractable handle which doubles as a protective sleeve for safe and convenient storage. Blades are honed to an optimal cutting angle. The zest grater comes in a bright green/yellow color that coordinates with lemons and limes. SRP $9.99
The tie-wraps are an inside joke. My friend is insistent on keeping her wire ties on her bags instead of using knots. She has a whole drawer compartment full of twisty ties in case one of hers gets lost. I know because I pretended to misplace one once to be funny, and in return she opened her drawer and said, 'no worries.' hahaha. the joke was on me. Despite the joke, these are still very handy and fun to add to a kitchen-themed stocking.
Multi-Use Tie Wraps
Plastic tags and twist ties can present a hassle as they may be easily misplaced or ruined. Trudeau’s Multi-Use Tie Wraps are the ultimate problem-solver for sealing all types of bags and more. Flexible and reusable, these leaf shaped ties are made of temperature resistant silicone. Simply wrap around the opening of a bag and thread through the hole to ensure closure and freshness. Dishwasher safe. SRP: $6.99
Finally, no kitchen gadget-themed stocking would be complete without a spout. These are great for so many different kinds of bottles. I've got one on my vinegar bottle, and I'd like to get one for the olive oil bottle too.

This amazing Universal Dripless Spout allows a clean easy pour from any bottle! 100% dripless keeps both bottles and hands clean and oil free.
