Homemade Baked Christmas Gift Recipes
Post warning: These recipes are NOT healthy!! 😉 But in all things, there should be moderation… that is my belief. I don’t do clean eating 100% of the time, and neither does anyone in my family. Let’s just be realistic, and enjoy our treats sometimes. <3
They say Christmas is the merriest and most wonderful time of the year. However, to many of us the season of sharing is nothing but stressful! This isn’t all that surprising, because there are certainly many things to be worried about this holiday season. There’s the guest list for your big Christmas party, the outfit you’re planning to buy for your work party, and of course, the presents for your friends and family!
Christmas gift-shopping doesn’t have to be stressful! If you want to get your loved ones something intimate and thoughtful, but you’re worried you don’t have the time to make personalized Christmas gifts, worry no more!
Below is a list of easy and baked homemade meals you can make and give as Christmas gifts:
For a homemade treat that even the little ones won’t be able to resist, whip up some tea cookies! These cookies are sure to hit all the right sweet spots. Store them in cute Christmas-themed boxes with snowflake patterns for some extra holiday cheer! Get the easy recipe here.
This recipe gets its inspiration from the traditional gingerbread man. However, instead of the gingerbread man, what you should make this Christmas are some gingerbread animals! For added fun, get the hubby and the kids and get creative with the animal shapes and colors together! You can find the recipe here.

Sugar Cookie Buttons
There’s nothing quite as good as these buttery delights! To make them as adorable as a button, thread a ribbon through the buttonholes and drop them in a papier-mâché box. Find the recipe for these cute cookies here.
