Make batches of these gifts, then divide into individual jars or bags and decorate with festive packaging and tags. You’ll bring comfort and joy to everyone on your list.
Apple Shortbread Bars
Baking a pie is always a sweet way to say thanks. But for a pie-style treat that’s much easier to pull together—and to transport—try these crumb-topped bars, which can be stacked in gift boxes and eaten by hand, no forks necessary.
Caramel-Chocolate Swirl Cracker Candy
Swirls of chocolate and homemade caramel cover crunchy saltine crackers for a sweet and salty combination that’s always a hit. And no one will ever know that all it took was a microwave to make it happen.
Moisturizing Bath Soak
Everyone loves a good soak in the tub come winter. Make their bath that much more enjoyable with this straight-from-the-kitchen moisturizing mixture. All you need is coconut oil, olive oil, baking soda, Epsom salts, and maybe a few drops of essential oil to make this thoughtful gift.
Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix
Waking up to fresh, fluffy pancakes on the weekend is a treat that everyone enjoys, so why not make mornings even more special with a homemade mix? One jar will make 2 batches of pancakes, so it’s really the gift that keeps giving.
Super Chocolaty Brownie Mix
With chocolate chunks, cocoa powder, and a pinch of instant espresso powder for enhanced flavor, this mix will put big smiles on the faces of all the chocolate lovers in your life. All they’ll need to do is add eggs and oil for rich and gooey brownies.
Homemade Sugar Body Scrub
Give the gift of smooth skin with this rosemary and lavender infused sugar scrub. Coconut oil softens, while courser raw sugar exfoliates.
Everyone will be impressed when you hand out homemade marshmallows, ready for floating in hot chocolate or just snacking as a holiday treat. A stand mixer does the hard work of turning sugar syrup into fluffy pillows.
