Homemade Gift Ideas

Homemade Gift Ideas // shutterbean

10 days until Christmas. WHOA. That’s kinda soon. We still have time to make homemade gifts, though. PLENTY OF TIME! Let’s dip into my archives and brainstorm all the things you could easily make for your loved ones this holiday season!

SALTED ROCKY ROAD FUDGE

With the help of smoked almonds, this Rocky Road Fudge is perfect for that salty sweet lover!

COOKIES & CREAM PEPPERMINT BARK

The creaminess of white chocolate gets married with Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe Joe’s and topped with broken candy canes. It’s cookies & cream meets candy cane BARK!

CHOCOLATE CHUNK BLONDIES

The walnuts…they get me EVERY TIME. I can’t stop eating these when I make them.

I find that people like bars after they’ve been assaulted with SO MANY COOKIES.

CRUNCHY PEPPERMINT BARK

It’s not Christmas unless I’m making crunchy peppermint bark. The rice krispies are EVERYTHING.

BOURBON SALTED CARAMELS

Three of my favorite words. I think I might use some Apple Cinnamon Bourbon on my next batch!

HONEY CANDIED WALNUTS

The most versatile honey candied walnut recipe! I’d appreciate a jar or two. Perfect addition to salads & yogurt.

TROPICAL BARK

A very pretty bark! This one will transport you to the tropics with the candied fruit & citrus vibe!

ALMOND PIZZELLES

Dainty, delicate and pretty. My grandma would give us containers filled with these during the holidays.

We’d plow through them in no time.

COCONUT + ALMOND CARAMEL CORN

Makes the best teachers gifts….

SALTED CARAMEL MACAROONS

These things are straight up ADDICTIVE. Also, bonus points if you drizzle chocolate on top.

FLOURLESS COCONUT CHOCOLATE DROPS

Totally gluten free— like a cross between a cookie & brownie. Oh and there’s coconut up in there too.

CANDIED CITRUS PEEL

These were a hit with my family. We all just put them in cocktails or ate them alone!

Chocolate dipped if you feel so inclined!

WHITE CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT PRETZELS

The easiest present to make! Get your kids involved in this one.

HOT COCOA POPCORN

Look! I put this popcorn in mugs. You could wrap it up with hot cocoa mix, marshmallows & a good book.

CANDY CANE VODKA

Booze Infusion. Put those candy canes to good use. Excellent in hot chocolate.

HOMEMADE LIMONCELLO

Quick! Get on this.

APPLE CINNAMON INFUSED BOURBON

3-4 days and you’re GOLDEN.

HOMEMADE AMARETTO

Instant hit! You don’t need any infusion time. Make this the day you give it!

BLACKBERRY THYME INFUSED VODKA

I gifted this to friends this week and they’re already asking me to make them more. GOOD SIGN!!

Happy Homemade Gift Making!
