Homemade food gifts are a fantastic way to share your love for cooking with friends and family. Each of these recipes are easy to make, and will give a special homemade touch to your gift giving this year.
Giving homemade food gifts is a special way to let the people in your life know how much they are appreciated. Not only are they delicious, they are also inexpensive to make and easy to wrap! Use canning jars to hold homemade snack mixes and dry ingredients for cakes and cookies. Tie curled ribbon around the jars, giving a festive touch to them.
These are some of my favorite homemade food gifts to give during the holidays:
This trail mix is healthy and delicious, and as you can see, fun for kids to make! My son is such a cutie in this picture, isn’t he? 😉
Nothing says ‘I love you’ better than a warm loaf of homemade bread! Wrap this cheddar dill bread up in festive plastic wrap, along with a jar of herb butter.
Pumpkin butter is absolutely delicious on warm cinnamon toast or a toasted bagel. This recipe can be made in a slow cooker, saving you more time to decorate the tree.
Each fall, my boys and I go out to pick fresh apples. Using them to create loaves of Honeycrisp apple bread fills the kitchen with love, as well as a delicious aroma!
Sweet and spicy snack mix is another favorite quick, easy homemade food gift that I make. The mix is very easy to customize, so have fun with it, using a variety of nuts, cereals, and pretzels.
I hope you try the recipes for these easy homemade food gifts!
