Edible gifts in jars and beautifully packaged treats are always welcome at Christmas. It’s a more personal, and cost-effective way of giving and showing friends and family you care. Check out this quick guide on what you can make for gifting.
Sauces and Condiments: homemade condiments and sauces are a lovely touch to any meal. That’s why a thoughtfully chosen homemade condiment or sauce makes for a wonderful gift. Packaged in a pretty jar, the receiver can then keep the delicious sauce in their fridge to enjoy for days or weeks. If your sauce or condiment has any serving instructions be sure to include this on the jar.
Flavoured oils and spice rubs: homemade spice mixes and oils are the perfect gift for any passionate home cook and foodie in your life. They are very quick to pull together and so versatile. Choose different oils, spices and flavours you like and package them up in gorgeous jars and bottles, ready to gift.
Flavoured alcohol and cordial: If you decide to brew or gift your own drinkable concoctions, be sure to sterilise the bottles. Again, stylish bottles make your gift effortlessly beautiful and you can also wrap some ribbon around the top for an extra festive touch.
Cookies, sweets and chocolates: who doesn’t love delicious rum balls, gingerbread cookies or shortbread. They are a Christmas necessity and also make gorgeous gifts. As a bonus, lots of these recipes can be made and frozen in the weeks ahead. Don’t forget to make extra for yourself!
