7 Homemade Food Gifts
You Can Make Today

Everyone loves to receive gifts, but there’s something special in knowing that someone took the time and effort to handmake something especially for you. This year break out your crafty side and try making one of these tasty and fun gifts!

Layering all the dry ingredients for a sweet bread in an old-fashioned milk bottle makes a lovely gift for any friend who likes to bake. This Quick Bread in a Bottle is easy to put together and tastes delicious for breakfast with a cup of coffee!

We already know that everything is cuter on a stick, so this Hot Chocolate on a Stick was an obvious win. Wrap the sticks in clear cellophane with a pretty ribbon, and gift with a mug for a cozy Christmas present.

Nutella alone makes a fabulous stocking stuffer, but for the ambitious DIY aficionado you can’t top whipping up a batch of Homemade Nutella.

Homemade preserves always taste better, so why not try making your own this year? A hand-selected basket of goodies (maybe a loaf of homemade bread and a compound butter?) with a couple jars of jam are a wonderful gift. We love this recipe for strawberry jame.

All you need is vanilla beans and vodka to make Homemade Vanilla Extract. Extra points if you make the labels yourself!

This dangerously good Homemade Irish Cream is perfect for the grown ups on your gift list.

Bake up some Apricot Granola and package it in a canning jar for a simple and healthy holiday gift!
