Bring the warmth and friendliness of your own kitchen to others through these easy make-ahead food gifts. Everything tastes better when it's homemade by a loved one, so share that with friends and family this holiday season. Here, we feature classic homemade food gifts like canned jams and flavored popcorn, but you can also be adventurous and wrap up exciting brittles or chile-infused honey. These impressive products make great stand-alone gifts, or pair with a simple spatula, rolling pin, or mug for the perfect foodie gift.
For a whimsical presentation, arrange these cookies in a lunch box lined with colorful packing paper. Use a variety of cookie cutter sizes to create “families.” If you don’t want to cut the dough into shapes, roll it into two logs, cover, chill, and slice into 18-inch rounds. Refrigerate the dough up to three days, or freeze up to one month.
