I’ve gotten some inquiries about some of the homemade gifts I’ve given over the last few years. For me, making gifts (edible or otherwise) satisfies my creative urges AND my inner engineer. A lot of folks are either completely disinterested in the domestic arts or don’t have the time for cooking/baking/soapmaking/etc. Hence homemade goodies as gifts.

Here are a few options.

Gifts in Jars

I have LOTS of recipes designed for jar gifting… If you have a specific request, I can probably make a jar gift out of it. Wet or perishable ingredients are generally not included in the jar, but you can sometimes include some of the additional ingredients alongside the jar as part of your gift. (examples: can of tomatoes for chili)

Sweets

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
M&M Cookies
Raisin Crunch Cookies
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Funnel Cake mix

Soups

Alphabet Soup
Vegetarian Black Bean Chili

Other edible gifts

Caramel Popcorn
Cinnamon Candy Popcorn
Baked/Decorated Cookies, cakes (particularly time-consuming, fancy cookies)
Quick Breads (pumpkin, zucchini, banana)
chocolate covered pretzels
Russian Tea mix (could go in a jar, I suppose)

Soap, etc

moulded bar soap
sugar scrubs
salt scrubs
bath salts
