18 Edible Gift Ideas for the Holidays

Christmas is only a few days away, can you believe it? If you’re like me, you haven’t finished your holiday shopping yet, or worse, you haven’t even started. I know the feeling.

Instead of heading to the mall and running around town like a crazy person, why not make your own magic and bake something from scratch for your loved ones? I think homemade gifts are the best kind of gifts. The time, effort and love that goes into crafting them makes them so much more valuable to me than any store-bought gift.

I’ve picked some of my favourite DIY edible gift ideas from a few of my blogger friends and included some of my own recipes too. Most of the recipes you will find here are healthier alternatives to overly sweet treats and use natural sweeteners, superfoods and whole grains and flours.
