Edible gift inspiration
Sauces and Condiments: homemade condiments and sauces are a lovely touch to any meal, especially during barbecue season. That’s why a homemade chutney can make a wonderful gift. Packaged in a pretty jar, with any serving suggestions or best before instructions included with the gift. Just be sure to sterilise the jar before adding your condiment.
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.
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. Why not wrap your sweets in cellophane and finish off with a bow. In the lead up to Christmas why not try making rums balls or delicious white Christmas, but remember to make extra for yourself to enjoy.
