Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas

If you're looking to make your own Homemade Holiday Gifts this year, Tracy Benjamin from Shutterbean.com shows you all of her favorite ideas.

Now that it’s about to be December, I think it’s time we went through some of our Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas.

We have options.

We do!

I went through my archives and this is my greatest hits playlist for you:


Chocolate Earl Grey Tea Truffles

If you’re looking to wow some friends, these will do the trick. Their flavor is complex and sophisticated!

Plus you get to roll chocolate and that is fun.

Candied Ginger

Fight colds with gifts! Ginger is a welcomed treat this holiday season.

Candied Citrus Peel

A really fun project to make with friends!

Salted Rocky Road Fudge

My mom used to make Rocky Road Fudge every year. This is my take on it!

Crunchy Peppermint Bark

So many people asked me for the recipe for these after I gifted them. That’s a good sign, right?

Cookies & Cream Peppermint Bark

If you also love Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe Joe’s these are FOR YOU.

White Chocolate Dipped Pretzels 

A little quick project that kids can help with!

Tropical Bark

Sometimes you have to break up all of the minty chocolate flavor profiles with something tropical.

This one has bits of mango, macadamia nuts, and coconut!

Cashew Sesame Brittle

These brittle hunks are AMAZING. My mom ate through her whole batch and didn’t share with my Dad.
