Cookies, Jams, Pâtés, and Other Edible Food Gifts for the Holidays
Instead of wasting time and money on thoughtless, expensive gifts that will be used once and tossed into the closet with other forgotten gifts of Christmas past, give the gift of food.
We all need to eat, which is why edible food gifts are perfect for anyone, and carry the added bonus of showing you spent time — which is worth more than money — preparing something you know they would love.
To customize your gifts, use seasonal flavors, like cranberry, gingerbread, citrus, and more. Make your cookies, cakes, and jams stand out with creative wrapping or personalized jars. Finally, bake, can, or cook in larger batches and portion out the goods for multiple gifts at a time.
