From sweet to savory, this roundup of 25 Homemade Food Gift Ideas & Recipes will help give your gift giving a delicious, personal touch!
I’ve always liked giving homemade food gifts for the holidays–or anytime of the year! They are great for hostess gifts to when visiting friends and family. There’s just something special about that personal touch when you’ve made something yummy to share with others. We like to give them as neighbor or teacher gifts throughout the year, too.
Today, I’ve rounded up 25 Delicious Homemade Food Gifts Ideas and Recipes from some of my blogger friends. I’ve also included some of my own recipes!
Don’t be intimidated by the idea of adding one more thing to your holiday to-do list! Many of these recipes are made in less than 30 minutes or are make ahead recipes which helps reduce stress by planning.
I can’t wait to try a few of these myself. My Holiday Baking Planner printable would help with planning for some of these recipes also. Even though it says “baking”, it can really work for most any recipe. Let me know which one of these Homemade Food Gift Recipes below you’ll try first!
They are easy to make, and kids of all ages will love watching the strawberry bombs explode in a cup of hot milk.
