Homemade edible gifts from the kitchen are so much fun to give, and are always appreciated. No matter whether you're looking for unique Christmas presents, or ideas for things to put in gift baskets for Thanksgiving, Halloween or other times of the year, these edible presents are fun to make and delicious to eat or drink! Homemade food gifts are perfect if you want to save some money this year, or if you simply want to bring authenticity in to your home and create your own traditions.

Wrap your gift in some nice paper or put the content in a pretty jar, and you're all set. Mason jars are affordable and can be reused again and again. A hand written note describing the content is nice and gives it a personal touch.

Sugar Cookie Dough

Cookie dough is the perfect gift for the non-baker. Make a batch and store it in the fridge for a few days or in the freezer for a longer period of time in a roll. Then whenever the reciever wants some cookies, they can simple cut a few slices off and bake them in the oven.

Chocolate Truffles
