There are many sources for buying live pepper plants. The easiest way is to head to Lowes or Home Depot and pick out a common pepper variety.

If we’re honest, hot sauces take up most of the room in our fridge. Receiving a new hot sauce is like winning a mini-lottery. With so many options, it’s a constant temptation that we have to (try to) control.

Heatonist is a Brooklyn based company that specializes in delicious craft hot sauces. They have pre-selected 3-packs, single bottles, or subscription boxes available. We’ve ordered on more than one occasion, so we can assure you, they’re good! If you’re looking for the perfect spicy gift, look no further.

With the Hot Ones subscription box, spicy food lovers will get 3 brand new, often exclusive hot sauces to enjoy each month. The subscription can be delayed and managed easily each month, or you can just gift a single box for one month.

9. Spicy Food Lover’s Cookbook

When I hear “sweet chili glazed” anything, my mouth starts watering. Follow it with “bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin” and I might need to excuse myself. Spicy food fanatics are always looking for new recipes to try out at home. This cookbook has a great variety of spicy dishes. Buy it here.

10. AeroGarden With Pepper Seed Pods
