With Turkey Day falling so late this year, there’s only 4 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas – which means less time to figure out gifts! We just decorated our place and put up the tree last night, so now it really feels like the holidays.
I’m all for consumable gifts or experiences rather than just getting more stuff that just takes up space. With small closets and limited cabinets in our home, I really just don’t have the room for too much else.
Last year I baked different types of cookies in tins (more of a standard Christmas food gift…) I made Oreo White Chocolate Peppermint, Pretzel Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Graham Cracker Cookie Bars (see links for the recipes).
Here are some other ideas I’ve done in the past:
DIY Hot Chocolate Mix – I attached mini bottles of Kahlua or Bailey’s (from Buzzfeed):
You can also do DIY cookie, brownie, or bread mixes (from Cul De Sac Cool):
I gave my brother “Reinbeer” a few years back (from Life of a Modern Mom):
