A friend called me up the other day to ask me whether I would prefer food or pampering stuff for a Christmas present. Well for me food related or food gifts ARE the ultimate pamper gift. In fact one of my best and much used gifts is an American cup measuring set my SIL and BIL gave me a few years ago. I almost always give out something relating to food as gifts, whether for Christmas, birthdays or there is a new baby in town day.
Anyhow our conversation turned toward homemade edible gifts. My friend is a busy mum occupied with end of term stuff, so was looking for quick and easy ideas. Basically, she wanted to use her pantry ingredients but also wanted a couple of ideas that were slightly different. So, there’d be no danger of the recipient getting the same present from someone else. It got me thinking about easy food gifts that have gone down well with friends over the years.
So over the next week I will present five homemade edible gift ideas that are easy to whip up from your pantry staples and budget friendly to boot. From the simply warming divine gift, to yummy time saving gifts, to the lazy breakfast idea and the ‘Oh this is unusual’ one too.
With a few decorations and gift tags thrown in who is to know that you spent less than ten minutes putting these together.
So please come back and check out these ideas and don’t forget to share your top edible Christmas gift ideas with us. Especially those slightly unusual ones……
Below are some edible Christmas gift ideas:
