Alyssa's Healthy Oatmeal Bites are vegan and gluten free oatmeal bites made with dried fruit. A unique treat for anyone, DLM has to restock the product every day. "We can't keep these on the shelf," Issenmann said.

Alyssa’s, the company that makes them, really took off when Mark Cuban from the television show “Shark Tank,” invested in them.

A 6 oz package is $5.99.

The replica of the classic Swiss Army knife, made by Victorinox, comes in packages of five for $12.99 or a single bar can be purchased at the register for $2.49.

These cookies, made by Lambertz, were so popular last year Issenmann said he tripled the order this year.

Great for parties, the box contains a European assortment of seven classic cookies.

The box is too big to fit into a Christmas stocking but  is perfect for parties.

Just shy of two pounds, the yard sells for $16.99
