For the final last-minute gift: mini Maldon Salts. These are cute little stocking-stuffers; think of them as snuff boxes for the gastro crowd (figurative inhalation only, please). Lovely to take on picnics (umn, when the ground’s less cold) or to keep on your person for those under-salted emergencies. I originally bought this because of its cuteness, but that I’ve used it at all was a surprise to me. I’m sure they’re available in various places, but I purchased mine at The Spice Trader (877 Queen Street West, Toronto) for $1.25.
