Home Made Gifts

Hopefully by now, you’ve wrapped up your shopping and have every loose end tied up. But when the time arises (and you know it will) when you need to give an unplanned gift, keep a stash of homemade treats on hand. Ganache-filled chocolate truffles are surprisingly easy—heavy cream and chocolate morsels are all you need for these heavenly treats. Or package up some barbeque spice rub for your meat-loving pals— upcycle some old jars and ribbon, and they’ll appreciate the rustic vibe. If you thought ahead during the summer months, pass along some preserves or pickled vegetables from your garden. And truly, one can never go wrong with gifting a perfect chocolate chip or festive sugar cookie.
