Ever say, “OMG, he’s cute, I just want to eat him up!” Now you can. Snowman Cake Pops from Gourmet Gift Baskets are as adorable in their group of six as they are delicious, with both vanilla and chocolate cake covered in a delicious white chocolate shell.
For someone who’s been naughty
Naughty Treats from IT'SUGAR include some very saucy gingerbread men, racy candy bars, and other items that blend naughty and nice into the perfect gift for anyone in your life who has a sense of humor and a pulse. These are LOL funny — and of course, for the SNL fans out there, receiving an actual box of Shweddy Balls will just make their entire holiday bright.

For the hostess
The Popcorn Factory’s Polar Pals Tin & Tower is brimming with adorable treats — six tiers worth of chocolate ornaments, holiday taffy, milk chocolate caramels, crunchy tree cookies, and sugar-coated pretzels. Best of all, this gift includes adorable chocolate-covered Rice Crispie treats shaped like Santa, one of his reindeer (probably Dasher), Frosty, and a penguin. and a giant plush candy cane ornament. Capping off the list is a North Pole-themed, two-gallon, three-flavor popcorn tin.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus, like our favorite grandparents, both come bearing sweets and gifts from Mrs. Fields. Bearing an array of sweets, the merriest of misters and missuses are all decked out with felt, fleece, and knit details. Hidden inside are 42 bite-sized cookies, 24 brownie bites, four frosted cookies, and 10 chocolate-covered Mrs. Fields dough bites.

For the ice cream fanatic
Mochidoki has debuted new holiday flavors: cinnamon eggnog dusted in nutmeg spice and spicy chocolate, a sweet-and-spicy combination of classic chocolate ice cream blended with chipotle pepper. They also offer gluten-free options and are Kosher-certified, and we know they’re not in any festive shapes, but there is nothing not-cute about mochi, so we’ll allow it.

For your own Cookie Monster
You probably won’t get much of a spin out of this adorable Dreidel, Dreidel Hanukkah Cookies Gift Set made by Eleni’s Cookies and shipped nationwide from FoodyDirect. But, you know, that’s not really the point. If you’d like to eat most of the cookie dough before you bake cookies for Santa, nab this Cookie Dough Holiday Gift Pack.

For your friend on the go
At the end of each Hot Chocolate Baton from Dean & DeLuca is just enough Belgian milk, dark, or caramel-flavored chocolate to make one perfect cup of hot cocoa. Simply stir into a cup of hot milk and allow the chocolate to melt. The result is the creamiest, most scrumptious hot chocolate around. Watching the eager face of the stirrer is probably cuter than the actually baton, in which case, you may want to nab a set of these adorable nutcracker cookies instead.

For the four-legged friend
Lastly, who can forget Fido? This holiday Dog Treat Wreath from PETA will make your furry friend flip out, and the proceeds go to one of the best causes around.
