10 Recipes for Gifts in a Jar and Other Great Edible Gifts

By: Danielle Zimmerman, Editor,

Mason Jar Monster Cookies'Tis the season to be jolly and to give all of your family and friends heartfelt gifts. Instead of fighting your way through the crowds at your favorite stores, make your loved ones homemade gifts. Because the fastest way to anyone's heart is through their stomach, we suggest giving out edible gifts this year! In our collection entitled 10 Recipes for Gifts in a Jar and Other Great Edible Gifts, you'll find a wide variety of fun food gifts that everyone will love. From gifts in a jar to cute individually wrapped treats, you'll be able to make something special for everyone on your list.

Homemade gifts like candy, chocolate bark, and cookies are labors of love that never have to be returned or exchanged. Who wouldn't love a delicious treat baked with love especially for them? Baking holiday gifts is not only much more personal, but it is also less expensive than buying something from the store. Even when you purchase pretty ribbon and bags to package your baked goods in, the cost will be much less than the generic sweater or scarf you might have bought otherwise. Edible gifts are also great for the people who might be harder to shop for, and aren't limited to gender or age. So while you're whipping up batches of holiday desserts for the family party or cookie exchange, package up extras to give away this holiday season!
