Homemade goodies make such thoughtful and delicious gifts! Most of us have the fondest childhood memories of special holiday treats: for Cait, it was her Grannie’s rum balls (Cait‘s mom still makes a batch for her every year) and Annie‘s Great-Grandmother’s ginger cookies and chocolate truffles have become legendary.
We’ve collected some of our favorite food gift ideas for you–and they don’t take hours and hours in the kitchen, either. Here are the easy recipes for famous ginger cookies, sinfully fabulous rum balls, totally divine chocolate truffles, and the healthful and addictive Savory Almonds that Cait fell in love with at a local restaurant, plus a few ideas for easy-to-throw-together gift baskets. These are some great ways to spice up the holidays and have a lot of fun in the process!
