Forget socks, selection packs and smellies, edible Christmas presents are the ideal way to add a personal touch to gifts. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get the kids involved in cooking-up foodie treats for friends and family this holiday season.
Even if your edible creation doesn’t look perfect – as long as it’s packaged up nicely and tastes good, you’ll be in for brownie points. Dig around for glass jars and bottles, corks, card, ribbon and coloured paper to wrap up these handmade treats.
So whether you’re making edible homemade gifts for that favourite teacher, the grandparents or school gate friends, turn your kitchen into a present production line and get baking with these yummy yuletide gift ideas.
Baked cookies make for a tasty personalised gift, but why not give someone special the ingredients to make their own cookies? Layering all the ingredients in a jar is so easy, and it looks beautiful when tied with some ribbon and a personalised gift tag. All they will need to supply is the butter!
Children will love making these miniature versions of Christmas puds. As they are ‘no-cook’ treats, they are perfect for younger chefs. Get them involved in the weighing, mixing and rolling.
Cookies are by far a festive favourite! Not only are they a great way to save money and give a present with a personal touch, but it’s the perfect opportunity to get the kids involved. They’ll love sticking on Curly Wurly antlers and Rudolph’s red cherry nose.
These gorgeous snowman cupcakes will look great on any Christmas table – perfect party food, they’re guaranteed to not stick around for long.
