Homemade Gift Ideas 2015

A collection of Homemade Gift Ideas from cookies, bars, barks to sugar scrubs can be found on Shutterbean.com!

Holiday cards are ordered, tree is up, mantle is decorated  and most of my holiday presents should arrive soon so I can wrap them all up…but what am I giving out for my homemade gift this year? Not sure! I have my on a coconut blondie recipe and am thinking of some type of infusion or something! I don’t know… we still have plenty of time to make homemade gifts. Let’s dip into my archives and brainstorm all the things we could easily make for our loved ones this holiday season!

CASHEW SESAME SEED BRITTLE 

Total crack. A salty sweet dream. I made these last year and found a rogue jar in my pantry last month. I ate them. Not mad at it. Also, they were still good!

SALTED ROCKY ROAD FUDGE

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

Side note: I am a 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!

COCONUT LIME BARS

I forgot about these guys! Now that I am looking at this picture I MUST MAKE THEM. I wonder how I can adapt them? Maybe make an orange version? Ooooh. I wonder if we could add rum…. I NEED THESE.

HONEY CANDIED WALNUTS

The most versatile honey candied walnut recipe! I’d appreciate a jar or two. Perfect addition to salads & yogurt. But really… we just eat them all the handful, right?

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…

RICE KRISPY BALLS with SPRINKLES

Get the kids involved! Dip them in chocolate. Make snowmen with white chocolate!

PEAR CRANBERRY WALNUT BREAD 

My mom used to make something similar and give them out as gifts when we had people over.

It wasn’t Christmas in my house if we didn’t have 5 loaves of bread wrapped up in aluminum foil on the counter….THAT WE COULD NOT EAT. MOM!

SALTED CARAMEL MACAROONS

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

PIGNOLI COOKIES

My dad’s favorite cookie. You’ll love the almondy/chewy situation it’s got going on with the crunch of the pine nuts!

CINNAMON SUGAR TORTILLA BITES

I make these for Valentine’s Day but you can easily use a tree shaped cookie cutter and make cute little trees. They’re so easy to make and an unexpected treat!

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!!

HOMEMADE MULLING SPICE MIX

Make your house and other people’s house smell FAB.

HOMEMADE SUGAR SCRUBS

Rough skin ahead! It’s just another Winter annoyance. Make some sugar scrubs and give them away as gifts!

Happy Homemade Gift Making!
