Non-Clutter Gift Guide: Unusual Consumables

gingerbread dog house

Looking to give gifts that won't become clutter for someone else? Consider experience gifts or consumables. I just wrote about experience gifts at Unclutterer, so let’s look at some consumables, from stocking stuffers to more substantial gifts. I listed some great consumables over at Core77, but here are some more that didn’t make it into that post.

The Solvang Bakery has your normal gingerbread houses — but also gingerbread dog houses, and some houses decorated for Hanukkah. Just remember that gingerbread houses don't stay tasty for too long. [via Santa Ynez Valley Wine Country Blog]

Simply Gum is gum made with only six ingredients, and none of the artificial flavors, preservatives or synthetics included in other gums. It’s available in six flavors. [via Uncrate]

If you want a whole lot of tempting food ideas, head on over to Mouth, which is dedicated to indie food. This chai pumpkin jam is just one of a huge number of choices.

Of course, not all consumables are food products. This lip balm from Rosebud Perfume Co. got raves from someone on MetaFilter.

This mulling spices soap comes from The Vagabond Tabby, which says its products are “crap free, guaranteed.”

There are even interesting toothpastes, such as these from Urtekram. There are three other choices from this company, too.
