It's amazing how difficult it can be to come up with appropriate stocking stuffers for everyone on your Christmas list. Big gifts come fairly easily. Coming up with enough little trinkets to fill a stocking, however, can be a real challenge--especially if you're looking for stocking stuffer ideas for men!  Jerky stocking stuffers are a great way to add a little special something to your loved ones' stockings this Christmas. 

Small batch bags are the perfect size. These 2.5 oz bags of beef jerky will add the perfect touch to any stocking. Even better, they come in a four-pack, making them perfect for all the special people in your life. The enticing, smoky flavor of the Jack Links bags will be sure to stand out in this year's stocking.

Savory Sugar River Beef Sticks will fill up quite a bit of a stocking. Even better, you can repackage them in appropriate sizes for several different stocking stuffers. Sugar River Beef Sticks are a favorite snacking treat for many individuals, especially when combined with all of the holiday cheese offerings.

Go a little bit healthier with Sweet Teriyaki Turkey Jerky. 3.25 oz of turkey jerky takes up plenty of space in the stocking and packs an even bigger flavor punch! Sweet Teriyaki Turkey Jerky also comes in a multi-pack, making it ideal for individuals who have several stockings to fill. 

If you've been struggling to find the perfect stocking stuffers for all the men in your life, look no further!

Watches, baubles, neck ties, widgets and beads are nice but we can only use so many of them. So after a while, they’re no fun to give or receive. Thankfully, there are still products out there that feed the soul. Cheese and sausage gift baskets are among them. They have the ability to transform Scrooges into giddy children and casual acquaintances into good friends. But that’s providing the cheese and sausage gift baskets have what it takes to delight recipients’ taste buds.

Carnivores Rejoice!

For unabashed carnivores, there is nothing better than a sturdy basket full of premium meats. So we’ve designed our Sausage Champion baskets with them in mind. Each offering boasts a full eight pounds of high quality proteins divided up into a myriad of well seasoned options, including Cajun sausages. And those savory, delicious sausages are not alone. They’re joined by gourmet condiments, crackers, mints and a shiny, sharp cleaver. Thus, it’s a true sausage rush for the pork and beef faithful.

Viva Variety!

For those who live by the creed “the more the better”, Gourmet Deli Classic Treasures baskets are unequivocally the perfect fit. They have two pounds less meat than the sausage gift baskets but feature a number of other, hunger satisfying additions. There is pumpkin butter, pickles, pirouline cookies, assorted condiments and wasabi peas. Recipients will also find dips, olives, chocolates, crackers, pickled beans and close to 50 ounces of cheese in each basket.

Now that’s just scratching the waxy top of the cheese wheel my friends! There are indubitably more cheese and sausage gift baskets to choose from. Plus, we can work with customers to build custom baskets for the most cantankerous, persnickety people they know.  To learn more and find the perfect cheese and sausage gift baskets, please contact us today.

Tis the night before Christmas…

and after the stockings are filled, you can whip up a delicious, easy strata recipe because—face it—once Christmas morning gets rolling, you don’t have time to fuss in the kitchen.

The wonderful thing about a strata dish (really a savory bread pudding) is that you are supposed to make it the night before. Perfect!

Then in the morning, while the stockings are being looted, you pop the dish into the oven and set the timer for one hour. Just think—you’ll be able to feed the hungry hoards before the living room disappears under a pile of rustling gift wrap. Santa’s got nothing on you!

The really important thing is that you don’t wait to get these key ingredients from Deli Direct so you’ll have them on hand when Christmas Eve rolls around:



  • 12 oz. take-your-pick from our flavored cheeses. Cut into cubes.
  • 10 – 12 slices of white bread. Remove crusts and cube.
  • 8 oz. of your pig-of-choice: either kielbasa, or Canadian style bacon. Cut into small pieces.
  • 1 4 oz. can mushrooms, drained
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • ¼ teaspoon each of salt, pepper and dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon of Deli Direct’s Hearty Cheddar Bacon Dip seasoning mix


  1. Grease a 13 X 9 inch baking dish. Put half of the bread cubes in baking dish, then cover with cheese cubes, meat and mushrooms. Put the rest of the bread on top.
  2. Mix seasonings with eggs and milk. Pour over bread mixture, coating all the cubes. Refrigerate, covered, overnight (or at least 4 hours).
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serves 8.

Go ahead and take Christmas morning breakfast off of your to-be-worried-about list. Contact us to order your strata supplies today!
