This holiday season when gifts may be a little more frugal than in the past there is no better way to show your appreciation of a friend or family member than with a gift from the kitchen without breaking the bank. Also, you can avoid all those lines!
Some peppermint marshmallows compliments of Martha Stewart will surely add some holiday flair to the recipients hot cocoa.
And a trio of pound cakes looks adorable in these cute paper boxes.
Even if you don't have time to spare with preparing goodies in your own kitchen even store bought sweets take on a new light when in ribbon adorned brown paper packages.
Or bottle your favorite savory or sweet topping in a simple glass container or mason jar finished off with some ribbon or yarn. You can find a delicious recipe for coconut Dulce de Leche here.
Even simple metal containers can look festive when lined with pretty paper and full of sugared cranberries.
Do you make any of your gifts in the kitchen?
