10 Gifts for Peanut Butter Lovers
From tasty candies to specially designed scrapers.
Creamy and sweet-savory, peanut butter is one of life’s simple pleasures—and if you know someone who loves it just as much as we do, there are plenty of tools and treats available that would make great gifts. Think scrapers specially designed to get every last bit of peanut butter out of the jar, mixers to combat separation, and of course, peanut butter and chocolate candies. Read on to find out where you can get them. (And maybe keep a few for yourself, too.)

Peanut Butter Mixer
If you keep natural peanut butter in your fridge (whether storebought or homemade), this mixer will help you re-combine the ingredients whenever they separate. Just attach it to the top of a jar like you would a lid, and turn the handle.

Anyone who regularly eats peanut butter knows the frustration of trying to scrape clean the jar—inevitably, a little bit ends up wasted. That’s where the PBspoon comes in. It’s a cross between a spoon and a spatula, designed with a pointed tip to get into “hard-to-reach ridges,” a flat edge for scraping, an angled back for spreading, and, a rounded part so you can scoop it right into your mouth.

Scoop and Spread
In a similar vein to the PBspoon, this tool has a spreader on one end and a flexible silicone scoop on the other, ideal for spreads like peanut butter. As an added bonus, it’s heat-resistant, so you can use it in hot pots and pans, too.
To make your own peanut butter, grab a cookie sheet and roast the nuts in the oven. This particular model was our favorite out of several that we tested.

Once the nuts are roasted, throw them in a food processor or high-speed blender. If you’re going with the former, this was the best-reviewed model we found on Amazon.
Hamilton Beach 8-Cup Compact Food Processor, $40 at amazon.com
Mini Muffin Cups
Don’t be put off by the “muffin” component of these cups—you can also use them to make your own bite-sized peanut butter cups. It’ll save you a trip to the store.
