HotSauceDaily’s 2016 Gift Ideas


We’re doing something new this year… instead of the usual “Best Products of the Year” type post, we’re sharing with you some great gift ideas instead. In no particular order, these spicy goodies would be a great gift for those you love, or even for yourself!

Hot Sauces

Let’s start with our favorite category of gifts… Hot Sauce!

Fuego Box Hot Sauce of the Month Club

Fuego Box of the Month Club

The #1 best selling stellar “… of the month club” for hot sauces, Fuego Box brings you nothing but the best of the best each and every month.

They love hot sauce, but you don’t know what to send to your BFF or weird Uncle Tim? Fuego Box will surprise them each and every month with a selection of 3 gourmet hot sauces. And every month they will be reminded of how awesome you are.

Get one for yourself and you’ll be surprised monthly too.

Moe Mountain Hot Sauce

Moe Mountain hot sauce on tacos

Totally original. Totally tasty. Moe Mountain only makes one sauce. And it is fantastic on tacos!
Featuring apple cider vinegar, cumin and cocoa powders and the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia)… like they say – “It’s Kinda Hot”. But delicious and not scary hot. Uncle Tim will be fine.

Bootlikker Hot Sauce

Bootlikker hot sauce flask bottle

Tequila. Cayenne. Garlic. ‘Nuff said?

In a cool flask bottle, Bootlikker Hot Sauce packs some heat and flavor! Another company that is focusing on just one sauce and doing it well!

Bollito’s Tuscan Red

Bollitos Hot Sauce

This “imported pepper sauce” features Calabrian chili peppers, organic red wine vinegar and heirloom garlic. Simply delicious and flavorful!

Volcanic Peppers Taco Sauce

Volcanic Peppers Taco Sauce

Volcanic Peppers anything. It’s all good!

But their Taco Sauce is light-years above anything in the stores. Order some, when it arrives, order more before you open a bottle… you’ll need more. Fantastic!

Georgia Peach and Vidalia Onion Hot Sauce

Georgia Peach Vidalia Onion Hot Sauce

We can’t have a shopping list without our all-time favorite gifting hot sauce from Chip Hearn and

It comes with a classy red velvet topper and gold foil ribbon. And it goes great on anything.

This is the sauce that your wacky Aunt Mary would love. It’s sooo good.

BBQ Barbecue Barbeque Bar-B-Que Bar-B-Q

Any way you spell it, Americans love it! And these are items that even wacky Aunt Mary and weird Uncle Tim will love.

Kosmo’s Q Honey BBQ Sauce

Kosmos Q Honey BBQ Sauce

A great balance of sweet, spicy and just all around perfect on ribs and wings. We can’t say enough good things about this sauce!

Step 1 – order some. Step 2 – enjoy. Man! Delicious!

Big Dick’s Rubs

Big Dicks rubs

I’m just beginning to explore the line of rubs from Big Dick’s. So far… A-Maze-Ing!

Seriously, these rubs are so clean and flavorful… just get some and go crazy!

Chicken Wings

America loves chicken wings. Buffalo style, grilled or BBQ, dry rubbed, oriental… you name it.
If I could quit my day job, I would just cook wings every day. It’s amazing that there are SO MANY ways to season and sauce wings!

Wingredient Wings

Wingredients wing rub and sauce

These folks bring on some rubs and dry seasonings that you mix up to make the sauce that your wings will marinate in, cook with, and sauce over your favorite bird parts – wings.

The selection is daunting, but if you start with the basic Wingredient Mix, you will be wing won over!

The Flaming Chicken Wing Sauces

The Flaming Chicken Bayou wing sauce

One of our favorite bottled wing sauces comes from The Flaming Chicken. Tons of garlic and buttery classic wing hot sauce flavors abound. And they have an even bigger selection of flavors since we last tried the Bayou.


Bowl? Check. Chips? Check. Salsa? Yea, you got a meal. Add sour cream and it’s game time!

Born to Hula Smokehaus Salsa

Born to Hula Smokehaus Salsa

From a grandfather’s garden and grandmother’s recipe… this family tradition features Fire Roasted Tomato, Vidalia Onion, Chipotle and spices.

Smoky and delicious! A 2016 Award Winner.



From the Mother-Daughter team of Kim Ham-Lanes and Bette Ham comes this family recipe of award-winning salsa.

It’s spicy in the truest sense of the word, featuring dried onions, dried tomatoes, vinegar, water and spices. What spices? Oh, that’s the family recipe and secret.


Headin’ out on the trail? Or just making that 1 hour commute to work… Jerky is a great snack food!

Katie’s Beef Jerky

Katie's Beef Jerky

You’re one-stop shop for all kinds of great jerkys. Everything is phenomenal! Don’t miss the pineapple flavored selections.

Pork Barrel BBQ Bacon Jerky

It’s bacon. It’s jerky. It’s tender and oh so good!

SumoJerky of the Month Club

SumoJerky samples

We’re wrapping this up with another “…of the Month Club” – this time from SumoJerky.

Each month you get some delicious small-batch jerky. These folks bring it.

That’s a wrap! Please check out the above companies and tell them sent you!

Your shopping list just got this much shorter! You’re welcome. 🙂
