There are so many reasons to take the time to make an edible gift…
- They’re always appreciated, particularly when you take the time to consider what the lucky recipient likes
- They’re typically inexpensive to make
- They’re personal. Nothing says ‘I care’ more than something homemade
- You can usually bang out several gifts in one afternoon
- And last but not least, they keep you out of the mall
Here are 12 easy and delicious gifts of food, with something for everyone. Whether your recipient has a sweet tooth, is a gourmet cook or a health enthusiast, you’re sure to find something they’ll love receiving!
(If you have no interest in making anything homemade, please skip to the bottom of this post for an important update regarding email updates)
I had a lot of fun curating these homemade goodies for you, so I think I’ll continue on and come up with some more I think you might like, maybe adding some some non-food items as well. But I can’t let you leave without letting you know about what I consider to be one of the best homemade edible gifts ever, especially if you have to send it to your recipient. They keep for weeks, are not delicate (important when mailing!) and perfect for the chocolate lover in your life! I’m talking about my world famous biscotti :).

Tomorrow I’ll be heading out to put together some wreaths for a fundraiser with a couple of friends and I’ll be sure to take some pictures and share them with you. This is the third year we’ll be doing this. The first year we made some wreaths which you can see here, and last year we worked on centerpieces which you can see here.

If you subscribe to my posts via email, you might have noticed you received two updates today. You also might have noticed you received an update for the first time today, even though you subscribed a while ago. I’ve mentioned in the past how much trouble I had been having with Feedburner, and I finally moved over to MadMimi (and I’m sooooo glad I did!). For reasons I don’t quite understand, it’s recommended that I not delete my Feedburner account, but rather delete the html source code for Feedburner. Well, I’ll tell you the same thing I told MadMimi…there’s no way I’m messing with code! So…if you don’t want to receive two email updates, just ‘unsubscribe’ from Feedburner. Don’t make a mistake and unsubscribe from MadMimi though! You’ll know which is which because it should say ‘Powered by MadMimi’ on the bottom of the email.
