My Top 5 Holiday Gift Recommendations

As a little bonus (I don’t normally post on Saturdays except for the occasional Snapshot post), I wanted to give you my top FIVE favorite things to give neighbors or teachers or friends or coworkers or whoever during the holiday season. Unique and delicious, these homemade treat gifts are sure to please and are kind of above and beyond the usual cookies and candies that get passed around (although those are delicious, too!). Click on the picture to go to the recipe.

Hot Chocolate Truffles
{Package these in a cute mug or tin with instructions on how to make the hot chocolate! They are unique and completely decadent.}

Cookie Dough Tins
{Who wouldn’t want cookie dough waiting in their freezer to be baked at a moment’s notice or craving?}

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
{This is the best homemade hot chocolate mix I’ve made and is adorable packaged with a mug or in a decorative bag.}

Giant Cinnamon Rolls
{I love giving these giant cinnamon rolls out as gifts. I package them on a cardboard round wrapped in cellophane or plastic wrap with a ribbon and they are always a hit. I like to include a note that the cinnamon rolls can be gently reheated in a warm oven or microwave.}

Butter Toffee Popcorn
{Every time I make this popcorn as a gift, I get asked for the recipe – it is so delicious and irresistible and there are a 100 ways you could package this. Think: colorful cardboard boxes from a craft store, decorative bags, tins, etc.}

Happy Gift Giving!
