No one can resist a delicious, thoughtful homemade gift made with love at the holidays! Whether muffins, bread or cookies, seasoning blends, or spiced nuts, gourmet goodies are always a welcome Christmas gift.

This year, show someone how much you love them with a homemade gift from your kitchen. Edible gifts are one of the best ways to share a little cheer with friends, neighbors, co-workers, and those who have helped you out over the past year.

Holiday baking and cooking have become a tradition for me. I love being in the kitchen making homemade food gifts for people that are important to me. Whether it’s the UPS delivery guy, the lawn crew, or anyone who’s done a home improvement project for me, I want to show them just how special they are to me.

Whenever I’m on the receiving end of getting a gift that someone has made, my heart tends to skip a beat just knowing that they took the time to make something for me. That’s why I’ve put together this collection of DIY Christmas gifts. From sweet to savory, spicy, and crunchy, there’s something for everyone on your list. Merry Christmas!

How Do You Wrap Food For Gift Giving?

Wrapping these foodie gift ideas is easy and fun! Whether you make a big batch of cookies or a loaf or two of bread, you’ll want to make your holiday gift special with a few festive touches. Here are a few of my favorite ways to wrap my homemade gifts:

  • cellophane bag – you can buy clear or holiday themed bags and loaded them with cookies, candied nut or muffins. Tie on a pretty ribbon and you are set!
  • reuse small bottles – I save small glass bottles and canning jars then fill them with BBQ sauce, and homemade spice blends.
  • cookie tins – most discount stores like Dollar Tree and Dollar General sell cookies tins that are great for loading up with cookies, fudge and nuts.
