Something for Everyone

One visit to Red Stick Spice Company and you’ll understand why we boast gift giving made easy! Hard-to-buy-for friend or family member? Worry no more. We’ve got just the thing to bring on the smiles.


Gift boxes are a great way to shower your loved ones with full flavor that keeps on giving. We’ve carefully curated our boxes to include a palate-pleasing combo of blends and oils. From grilling enthusiasts to the beginner cook, a gift box is sure to please.


Here’s the answer for that person who doesn’t want any more “stuff.” Give the experience of a hands-on cooking class. Our cooking classes cover a wide variety of topics including exotic spices, pastry making and classic pickling.


Show some extra-special love with the gift of a private cooking class. These classes are customized to the individual group. We’ve taught everything from soufflÈ to reversed-seared sous vide steak. Purchase a private class, and we’ll work with your recipient to set up the delicious date and details.


Shopping for someone but not sure what to give? Give them the gift of choice with an online Red Stick Spice Company eGift Card for use in our online store. The fastest, easiest way to gift a friend online. Our online eGift Cards are delivered instantly via email to your recipient and never expire.
