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.
Stirring fruit into jam is simple and, when packaged in pretty jars, is a welcome holiday gift. Place the ribbon-decorated jars in a basket and include a note that the jam should be refrigerated. Also include some healthy serving suggestions such as stirring into Greek yogurt, spreading on whole-wheat pancakes, or melt and pour over a fruit tart.
