For those of you planning on filling stockings this holiday season, allow me to make a suggestion: Pack those oversized socks with delicious bottles, jars, cans, and packages of goodness. (Trust me, you and your loved ones with have a very merry holiday if you heed my advice.) And, if you’re here, chances are you agree with us that the best stocking stuffers are edible. So, when we found out that Brightland recently launched a few of their best-selling pantry essentials in mini sizes that you can buy solo for the exact purpose of stuffing a stocking, well, our dreams basically came true.

While the fan-favorite olive oil specialists do have a few extremely giftable bundles of mini bottles, this is the first time you can order them for purchase a la carte. Available in three of Brightland’s most iconic bottles — Ardor, Parasol, and Alive — each of these stuffers is 1.4 ounces, which is the perfect gift size, regardless of the season. They’re also extremely portable if you, like me, plan on sticking one of these minis in your purse. So, now that you are privy to the news, take out your Santa hat and turn your loved ones’ wishes into reality. (By the way, no one’s stopping you from putting these in your own stocking!)

Making its debut in 2019, Ardor is easily one of Brightland’s most popular flavors today. The bottle of fiery-tinted olive oil is blended with red chili peppers, jalapeño peppers, chipotle peppers, and paprika for a smoky, spicy blend that makes for a punch of flavor whether you’re dipping pizza into it, adding it to pasta sauce, or drizzling it over grilled veggies. Grown on a small California family farm, the early-harvest Frantoio olives from which the oil is made are pressed no more than 90 minutes post-harvest for the very freshest product. Perfect for the spice-lover in your life, this bottle will not disappoint.

A zesty zing of acid is more your speed you say? Well you’re in luck. Brightland is offering their bright, citrus-forward champagne vinegar in stocking-stuffer size. Made with a blend of doubly fermented California Chardonnay grapes and California-grown oranges, the bottle can serve as an ample substitute for practically any vinegar you have in you cabinet. In fact, we’d venture as fas as to say that using this slightly effervescent, tart, and sweet blend will one-up whatever acidic component you’re currently using in salad dressings, sauces, drinks, and more.

Alive might be the most versatile bottle on Brightland’s site — smooth, round, and fresh, this olive oil makes a great base for salad dressing, hummus, and marinades, but also does a great job when sprinkled over pasta, on bread, or into an olive oil cake glaze. It’s pressed from CA-grown, early-harvest Arbequina and Arbosana olives, whose crisp, grassy, and buttery notes come together in this bottle of true liquid gold. It’s an absolute must in any kitchen (or stocking!).

You can mix and match the bottles as you add them to your cart or you can stock up on a bunch of your tried-and-true favorites. We think you’ll agree that curating thoughtful stocking stuffers is now virtually effortless!
