Homemade Food Gift Ideas

Many people like to make special food over the holidays to give as gifts. It is usually an easy and frugal gift to give that everyone enjoys. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like to receive homemade food as a gift.

I thought today I would give you some recipes that are easy to make and that work great for gifts around the holidays. Put any of these into a holiday container or tin or even a decorative bag and they look great and are perfect for the holidays.

  1. I like all of these GREAT!!! recipes. What WONDERFUL!!! gifts. THANKS!!!

  2. Great ideas! Love the brownie mix. Yummy.

  3. Thanks for the ideas! Around here, we call that chex stuff “Puppy Chow!” 🙂

  4. MMmmmm, chocolate covered pretzels. Yum. I tried a new recipe this year for sugar & spice pecans and that’s what I think I’ll be making for gifts. I’m also thinking about whipping up some lemon curd, if the lemons on my tree get ripe in time. I thought that might make a nice gift, with some homemade biscuits or scones . . .

  5. Add some sprinkles to the chocolate on the pretzels before it hardens for fun and to pretty up the gift. We did these a few years ago for Sunday School teachers. We might have to do it again. 🙂
