Still wondering what to gift the foodie on your list? All you need is quality ingredients and your own creative spark to craft DIY gifts that deliver warmth and flavor this holiday season! Read on for a few of our favorite ideas.
If you know someone who loves to bake sweet treats—minus all the measuring—a recipe-in-a-jar is a great gift to give! Simply measure out all the dry ingredients that go into your favorite cookie or brownie recipe (think flour, sugar, oats, cocoa, candy mix-ins, etc.), layer them carefully into a jar, and add a lid plus a decorative ribbon and gift tag to bring it all together! It’s a sweet, homemade gift that is sure to warm up the recipient’s home with holiday flavors they’re sure to love.
Hot cocoa to go
In a similar fashion, you can craft a delicious hot-cocoa-to-go gift for the person on your list who loves warm, cozy nights and familiar flavors. Pick out a fun mug and add a gift bag of hot cocoa mix, marshmallows and a candy cane for good measure—and voila! You’ve got a ready-made treat that anyone on your list will truly savor on a cool night.
Farmers market finds
Cool winter weather calls for farmers market fun here in the Sunshine State! If you’re a regular at your local farmers market, you have an up-close eye on the best flavors and hidden gem treats, so why not curate a farmers market goodie basket for someone you love? Pick out a beautiful basket and add gifts like flowers, homemade butter, baked goods and whatever else you may find at the farmers market. The custom-curated nature of this gift is sure to stand out and make for a truly luxurious, personalized surprise.
Framed recipe keepsake
If you have a friend or family member who is always asking for your recipe—whether it’s for chocolate chip cookies or a savory spaghetti sauce—give it to them in a special way this holiday season! Detail the recipe notes on a handwritten card, then frame it for the ultimate personalized present. You can even opt for a shadow box approach, using a glass case to house both the recipe and other three-dimensional additions like miniature ornaments, glitter or stickers for festive flair.
Holiday housewarming essentials
For the person in your life who’s recently moved into a new home of their own—or who could simply use some help with stocking up on the essentials—a kit of must-have spices, beautiful new wine glasses, a spoon rest, double boiler or other foodie odds and ends are all sure to make a splash and serve the “giftee” well through years of kitchen fun!
There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned wine-and-cheese night! Put together the makings of a perfect one by assembling a basket of gourmet meats and cheeses, as well as additional treats like grapes or a bottle of wine, to help your recipient enjoy a truly elegant night in.
