Golden Rule Spirits Canned Cocktails ($20 for four)

The canned-cocktail scene is out of control, which is why we are thankful for this deliciously simple 3.4-ounce margarita and old-fashioned from Golden Rule. They slap like real cocktails, boast a high-octane alcohol-by-volume rating, and contain fewer than five ingredients.

Kati von Lehman Rose Coffee Mug ($32)

This hand-thrown mug is so bespoke that the maker can’t confirm exactly how many fluid ounces each one holds. That wonderfully imperfect handmade geometry, coupled with the matte rose finish, creates a mug as beautiful as it is comforting.

This 10-by-5.5-inch nontoxic enameled cast-iron pot handily replaces eight single-use cooking devices (a stockpot, a Dutch oven, a saucepot, a roasting rack, a steamer, a strainer, a braiser, and a spoon rest) and does a better job than each of them. Give the best gift of all: declutter the kitchen of the chef on your list.

Gray Whale Gin ($40)

Unexpected ingredients like kombu and almonds give this gin an umami kick. We loved this remarkably balanced drink so much on the rocks that we didn’t bother mixing it with tonic. Once empty, the bottle made an attractive impromptu vase on the kitchen sill.

Aplós partnered with James Beard honoree and master mixologist Lynnette Marrero to create a non-alcoholic spirit that delivers nuanced flavors with yuzu, rosemary, basil, cucumber, and dandelion. Perhaps the best part is that it provides a slight head buzz that leaves you with none of the ill effects of drinking booze: Its 20 milligrams of broad-spectrum hemp delivers a light lift without the heavier high of its THC counterparts.

Wonder Valley Olive Oil ($36)

A beautifully thought-out meal can be quickly ruined at the last step if finished with bland olive oil. Thankfully, Wonder Valley created this peppery and herbaceous olive oil from sustainably grown young olives. It livens up everything from simple greens thrown into a bowl to a soup cooked for days.

These Are The Days Heirloom Wheat Pancake Mix ($15)

Pancake mix is the perfect adventure companion. It’s high in activity-fueling carbohydrates, a breeze to transport, wildly easy to make, and objectively delicious. Unfortunately, many of these mixes are an over-processed gut bomb. In contrast, all of the grains in this heirloom wheat pancake mix are 100 percent stone ground, so they retain all of their nutritional value and the mix stands out for its depth of flavor.

Shaquanda Will Feed You Hot Pepper Sauce ($10)

We’d wager one bottle of this delicious hot pepper sauce that you won’t find a savory food its spice won’t elevate. It is a true put-on-everything sauce thanks to a completely balanced mix of ingredients: hot chili peppers, onions, ginger, lemon juice, horseradish, turmeric, mustard, and apple cider vinegar.

CamelBak 25-ounce Wine Bottle ($30)

The slowed-down pace of camping makes it the perfect setting to enjoy your best bottles of wine. Do those bottles justice by decanting them in this vacuum-sealed 750-mil container. It will keep them at their ideal temperature, regardless of the weather, and is much less likely to fall over thanks to its grippy silicone base.
