I especially like doing this if I am giving a gift card or something else that’s impersonal. Homemade gifts are also good choices for teachers gifts.
These top homemade gift ideas always serve me well.
1. Homemade Chocolates
I love making homemade chocolates. Some years, I just stir coconut and almonds into melted chocolate. Other years, I actually bother to make truffles. This year I am making chocolates with crushed, candied peppermints sprinkled on top. No matter what I do it’s always a hit.
2. Vanilla Extract
I adore homemade vanilla extract. All you need to do is buy a 1 liter bottle of vodka and about three vanilla beans. Open the bottle, place the beans inside, cover it, and store it for about four weeks in a cool, dry place. The end result is a vanilla flavored vodka that you can use in baking and also sip.
3. Mason Jar Gifts
Another fun idea is to assemble baking mix for things like brownies and chocolate chip cookies and put it in a mason jar. Attach a little tag to the jar with instructions. Here’s a video with some ideas.
