Holidays are all about caring, sharing and having fun with friends and family. And the other thing that is even more fun is buying gifts for your loved ones. And though we buy presents for the kids to fulfill their wishes, there is nothing more fulfilling than making your own gifts. Adding that personal touch is what makes gift exchange meaningful and memorable.
Being a foodie, it’s traditional for me to bake some extra-special treats and add them to the holiday gift fare. One of my favorites is the Sweet & Spiced Nuts in a Jar – it looks fancy and sophisticated, and the personalized gift tag makes it extra-special.
Another homemade gift that is a favorite amongst all the kids in our family is the Hot Cocoa Mix In a Jar. Line up all the ingredients for making hot chocolate in a beautiful glass jar. Add a recipe tag to go with it, and you’ll be winning compliments from all the tiny tots on your gift list.
Homemade Fudge is another great option. Here is a really simple but fool-proof 5-Minute Fudge Recipe which is perfect for the holiday season. Everyone loves chocolate, and what better gift could you give other than a box full of delicious creamy fudge!
If you are looking for a Cookie recipe that has Christmas written all over it, then try these beautiful Holiday Table Light Cookies. Made with sugar cookie dough, shaped like Holiday lights, and adorned with cream frosting and delicious M&M’s, these would be a perfect gift for the holiday season!
Last, but not the least, here are my Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies, which have been my personal favorites for a long time. They are neither too chewy, nor too crisp – the chocolate in the recipe keeps them moist and pretty, and firm enough to be packaged into a nice box and shipped to your loved ones. These cookies are just like eating Nutella in a cookie form! And Kahlua Hazelnut liqueur enhances its flavor just right, perfect for celebrations.
