17 Easy Homemade Gifts From The Kitchen Round Up

Easy and Delicious Homemade Gifts From the Kitchen

There’s nothing like a homemade gift; especially one that’s edible. I purposely preserve extra jams and jellies each year for gift-giving. My friends and family look forward to my baskets of homemade food gifts that I give out for special occasions.17 Easy Homemade Gifts from the Kitchen Garden Therapy

An edible gift is perfect for those hard-to-shop-for people in your life, as well as those who already have everything. Making a specialty jam or syrup from herbs and fruits you harvested from your own garden makes the gift even more special. Need some inspiration? Here’s a list of homemade gifts from the kitchen that will have you set for birthdays, weddings and the holidays.

Herbs and Spices 

Other Great Gifts

    I love getting a homemade gift. Not that it’s wrong to buy something for a friend or relative but it’s sure nice to receive something made with love. It kinda says, hey, I really do care about you because I took some time on your behalf. I really like treats for my 2 dachshunds in particular, those are really appreciated! Herbs make a wonderful and inexpensive gift. Lovely post.

      Thank you Laura! I couldn’t agree more. My Boston terrier LOVES treats that are homemade. I was surprised how much, I thought he would like store-bought better, but he’s obviously smart!

    What I would love to see is some soup “mixes” in a mason jar. I’ve dehydrated zucchini, tomatoes, kale, etc. to put into jars and heat and seal. But I’m not able to find any recipes. Since I garden without chemicals, I would love to give my dehydrated treasures in soupmix form. Do you have any recipes like that to share with us? Thanks for all you already do. I love getting your idea in my inbox!
