Edible Homemade Christmas Gift Guide


Where the FREAK did the time go?? How are we already at the end of 2015?! And, more importantly, HOW ARE WE ALREADY JUST A WEEK FROM CHRISTMAS?!?!

I’m craaazzzy about Christmas; it is by far my favorite time of year. I count down to the holiday season every year, often not waiting for the summer to end before I start putting on my Christmas jams…

But I really do not understand how Christmas crept up on me this year!!! Oh ma goodness. I’m not ready…

Not to worry though, because I have a bunch of homemade edible Christmas gifts that I can give to anyone I forgot to shop for or didn’t know what to get. And these homemade gifts are just as thoughtful, special, and unique as they are delicious!

Make these edible gifts for the special people in your life, but be sure to make extras for yourself!
