Everybody under the sun -- from barely-able-to-walk infants to tried-it-all adults -- loves ice cream.

Shop Great Gifts or Ice Cream Lovers

Ice cream just might be the great equalizer since it's pretty much a universally loved sweet treat. Here are a few must-have gifts for ice cream lovers. Of course, we won't tell anyone if you grab a few for yourself while you're shopping too:

  • Basic ice cream starter flavors. Designed to make serving up the perfect scoop easy every time, an ice cream starter is a must-have if you're going to be making your own ice cream at home. With flavors like classic chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and cookies and cream, you can serve up favorites to your family or be the talk of the town after a dinner party.
  • Seasonal ice cream starter flavors. Ideal for the sizzling summer months, a seasonal ice cream starter can help you make delicious flavors that are perfect for finishing an al fresco meal. Look for go-to flavors like peach, mango and adult-friendly Vietnamese coffee to indulge your sweet tooth.
  • Ice cream accessories. Ice cream in a cup, cone or bowl is hard to beat, but if you want to elevate your ice cream game to the next level, you need a few new accessories in your pantry. Try our ice cream sandwich sets and grab some easy-to-use freezer storage tubs so you can keep tons of flavors on hand. It'll be like having your very own ice cream shop before summer's up!
  • Ice cream sauce. Caramel, chocolate, butterscotch and vanilla - whatever you pick, you just can't go wrong! Shop our selection of downright delicious ice cream sauces to pour over your homemade or store-bought ice cream.
  • Ice cream toppings. Are you into colorful sprinkles? Maybe marshmallow bites or chocolate sprinkles are more your speed? Whatever you like, we've got the toppings to help you put the finishing touch on your favorite ice cream flavors.

Ready to try your hand at making your own ice cream? We've got everything you need to get started today. You can also find a selection of boxed chocolates, cookies, cakes and brownies in case you want to enjoy your sweets without stepping foot in the kitchen.
