My favorite gifts to give are homemade edible gifts. They’re also my favorite to receive. If you’re looking for some great ideas on what to make and give, here are 100 to get you started!
This post contains a giveaway, for more information read my full disclosure.
When you are young and broke, homemade are the only gifts you can afford. I started making gifts back when I was a teen. Usually my mom did it with me, but one year I was determined to make my uncle some peppermint patties. Yorks were his favorite, Junior Mints second.
I grabbed a recipe from an old book from my grandmothers shelf and wasn’t sure what would happen. They turned into minty animal droppings, aka Janine’s Junior Mints, but my uncle didn’t mind; they tasted great! The only problem; I just didn’t make enough.

First of all, thanks for all these fun recipies. 🙂 Second of all, thank-you for the chance at the giveaway prize. Winning that would bless my family in that not only would it help us buy supplies for gifts so we could still have something for friends and family, but it would also help my boys and I put a holiday meal on the table and help me put one special gift under the tree for them. Times have hit harder than usual this year for my family and a prize like this would bless us in so many ways.

Winning this giveaway would be a blessing, as my hubby has been out of work since the beginning of April.
This would bless our family by making it possible for us to do Christmas this year. We got some bad news not long ago and we’re worried how we’re going to make ends meet during the holidays.
