Food Gift Ideas for Christmas

Seven Food Gift Ideas

Christmas Food Gift Ideas

Use herbs from your garden, or other favorite ingredients to make a flavored oil.

I am making these infused oils for the teachers at school this year.  This version is Pasilla Chili with Lime Infused Oil. I used the same process with the lime zest as per this post I have written on basil infused oil.  

Rosemary Salt

Dry oregano

Dry some herbs from your garden and add them to some lovely pink salt, or to a cute container

Grow your own

Plant a pot and gift it.

Plant the desire to grow fresh food in your friends and family. Choose herbs that you know your friend, or family will enjoy using in their cooking.

Support a good cause and gift the Cooking for Compassion Cook Book from Wesley Mission.

Wesley Mission are supporting families in crisis during this festive period, as well as across the year. You may even find a recipe in there from yours truly….

Onion Chilli Chutney

Make a jam, chutney or relish

If you have grown the ingredients it is even more special! 

Christmas Cinnamon & Orange Butter Cookies

Bake biscuits and cut them into Christmas shapes

We made these Christmas Cinnamon Orange lovelies last year.

Dried Fruit Balls

Give your  packaging a festive twist

These are my Dried Fruit Balls

I try to avoid purchasing printed gift papers and instead use brown paper all year round to wrap gifts. It is easy, and fun, to add your own stamps, ribbon or string and home made card to personalize your gifts and make them stand out.  This year my food gifts are to be presented in these little bags (see below) that I have made from an old magazine. To find out one more food gift idea that will be going in these you will need to wait a few more weeks….

Christmas Wrapping

If you are not a Pinterest user it is worth a look, although you should be warned that it can be addictive.  Pinterest can be compared to a huge scrap, or pin board full of ideas and inspiration. My Christmas board on Pinterest has more Christmas packaging ideas. 

This post is linked to Domesblissity:Thriving on Thursdays. This edition has a Christmas focus.

Are you making any food gifts this festive season? What are you creating?

      Thank you Lizzie, hopefully it will cover all tastes this year 🙂

    I loooove giving home-made presses for family and friends. It gets so hard trying to think of something for everyone, so a homemade edible gift is perfect 🙂
