I was looking for little gifts for the hubby (who never met a pork belly he didn’t like) and I found so many hilarious things, I thought I’d share. Bacon is so good. Why don’t you start by making those French Toast and Bacon cupcakes from Life is Better With Cake pictured above. I’m sure they ship well… to me.

Somebody could just hand me a package of bacon and I'd be thrilled. I don't need all this other stuff. Except for bacon salt. I totally need a case of that. ๐
You almost forgot the classic Bacon Beans: http://tinyurl.com/3yeb23r
Too funny! Love this list. How about bacon toothpicks.
My husband just cooked up 3 lbs of bacon for work in the form of: peanut butter bacon cookies and chocolate covered bacon. Tastes much better than it sounds, they went really fast. Even the non-believers were raving about them.
I actually got some of the bacon salt for my husband a few years ago as a stocking stuffer. I have to say, it's delicious – great on scrambled eggs, or popcorn!
one year i received bacon band-aids and a bacon air freshener in my stocking – you know, the ones you hang from your rear-view mirror. they were from my SIL. if you must know, we share an inside joke about bacon. they were really funny gifts!
Not a "gift" exactly, but any bacon aficionado would be delighted to be turned on to http://www.royalbaconsociety.com/
This just made me laugh. Thanks for sharing. ๐
Bacon is like duct tape, it fixes everything.
I am totally making bacon cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning and these peanut butter bacon cookies could put me over the edge. http://www.shutterbean.com/peanut-butter-bacon-cookies/

Bacon Jam!! My husband whipped up a batch for bacon loving friend. http://realnobodyslikeus.typepad.com/real_nobodys_like_us/2010/11/bacon-jam.html
bacon. and. salt. My hubby would think he had died and gone to heaven…
You mentioned somewhere that your hubby loves coffee too, so you have to track down this bacon coffee cupcake (yes really!) that a friend of mine FB'd about a couple of weeks ago. Am trying to find out where it was from, all I know is somewhere in LA. Yeah, I know, really helpful… It looked surprisingly yummy. And rolling three vices into one is always a good thing…
Oh! I forgot! KCRW's Good Food did a bacon feature recently. http://www.kcrw.com/etc/programs/gf/gf100925bacon_everything_gra You could add a Bacon Crawl treasure hunt to your list. Bacon and egg martini followed by bacon ice-cream? It's like a recipe for true love.
You're the best wife!
Ha ha, what man could resist a girl wearing bacon lip balm!
My husband, a Jew & a porkophile, got bacon scented soap from his sister last year for Chanukkah. It was from etsy & it was a clear bar with a "slice" of bacon floating in it. It was actually a little too gross for him!
Don't forget the kiddies: Google "j&d;'s bacon baby formula" and kick yourself for not starting your little one off on all that bacon goodness!
**^ By the way, that product was added on April 1st. I posted it to my facebook and had lots of concerned comments from friends who either didn't read the whole description or are just really gullible!
Bacon jam! My friend got 2 jars of it one year for Christmas and thought it was a gag gift from someone. Turns out it was meant to be a REAL gift. She didn't know what to do with the stuff so she used it to coat pills for her dog. The dog was originally spitting up the pill but since it was covered in bacon jam, she devoured it.
Made famous by The Daily Show with Jon Stewart:
This is hilarious!! ๐ I love it. Here's one. Don't know how u feel about your house Snelling like bacon ALL the time. Lol
Also, i mentioned your blog yesterday on mine, it's my fave one!! ๐
-yours truly, Goldiloks
Oh goodness! I have experienced the bacon car freshener in person. Inspite of my unnatural affinity for bacon, it was nasty!
Do you want to know my dirty little secret (that I haven't even come clean to my husband about)?? I put bacon bits on my popcorn!!! buttery bacony goodness, if I hadn't had finished the bag of bacon bits on my salad for lunch, I would totally go make myself some popcorn right now! (and I am Jewish…so I have that going for my love of bacon, too!)
A bunch of people mentioned bacon jam, which I was going to mention too! You can order a version of it here:
It's really good – my mom came to visit and ate about half my jar in one sitting, with crackers. Sigh…
I'm not sure where they got these outfits, but if you could find them they would be perfect!
I tracked down the bacon coffee muffin location: Korean food truck called Ahn Joon. Wish I wasn't on the bottom of the planet and could go try it…
My husband got Bacon Floss in his stocking one year. That is NOT the freshness you want to have before going to bed at night! It went well with the bacon and eggs band aids, and the gummy porter house, though. We have fun with our around here!
Bacon is worshiped at our home as well. I have the Bacon Salt. Not bad. If you are feeling especially generous, you can always make him a Bacon Explosion. We found the recipe at http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/28/dining/28bacon.html
Essentially, it is bacon wrapped in sausage wrapped in a beautiful basket weave of yes, more bacon. Then you smoke it. Heaven. However, probably not appropriate for as a stocking stuffer.
Now I'm hungry.

Bacon Maple Bar
Raised yeast doughnut with maple frosting and bacon on top!
@ Voodoo Doughnuts
I've heard it's quite yummy. I live so close but have yet to try it.
OK, Bacon Salt really is delicious! On an avocado = YUM. And you can get it at the grocery store! Great stocking stuffer.
