Homemade Food Gifts
Homemade food gifts are always appreciated. People say that "the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach" ...from my experience it is the best way to any person's heart...there are a lot of women out there who love to eat nicely made food too!
The great thing about giving a food gift is that you know it will be enjoyed. Food gifts are not left to gather dust in a cupboard, but are usually eagerly consumed within days (or minutes) of being received!
On this page I have started to collate a list of easy-to-make, tasty homemade food gift ideas. Delicious cake and biscuit recipes, preserves, homemade gifts in a jar, romantic chocolate dipped strawberry recipes, and more.
All recipes have been thoroughly tried and tested by me and my many willing family members!
Homemade Food Gifts Contents:
Food Gifts in a Jar
Gifts in a jar are a lovely gift idea for friends and family. They're easy to make in batches and great to have in the cupboard for last minute gifts.
Christmas Food Gifts
I only discovered mulled wine when I moved to the UK from Australia. Celebrating my first cold Christmas clutching a mug of spiced wine certainly is a happy memory. Spice sachets together with a bottle of red wine make a lovely and easy to make Christmas gift - the warming flavours of organge, cinammon, and cloves are delicious!
Fruit mince pies are also one of my favourite treats at Christmas time, although I don't think this is a North American tradition. This is a super easy recipe perfect for those short on time, and they taste delicious
Chocolate bark (or brittle as some people call it) is such a quick and easy gift idea and perfect for the Christmas season, especially for popping in a homemade Christmas gift basket!
Jams, Chutneys & Preserves
Jams, chutneys and preserves are a wonderful homemade food gift to prepare in advance.
Probably one of my favorites, this dried apricot jam is wonderful recipe with a subtle spiced flavor, and the best thing is that you can make all year 'round.
Delicious Cookie Recipes
Who doesn't love a batch of cookies! Make a batch to take around next time you visit a friend. Cookies also make a lovely get-well gift, accompanied by a thoughtful get well message.
Easy Cake and Slice Recipes
This quick and simple brownie recipe is so easy to follow, and makes a batch of deliciously moist, chocolatey brownies. A wonderful homemade food gift idea, if you don't eat all of them first!
Or try this amazing moist carrot cake recipe, it works every time! People always ask for my recipe, so here it is. Can be used for baking healthy carrot cake cupcakes too!
This easy-to-make no bake lemon cheesecake recipe is light and smooth in texture, and tastes lemonicious! Seriously, it's yummy! Or try the strawberry, with its light fluffly texture! They are fabulously easy summer-time desserts.
The moist, soft, and delicious mini muffins (friands) made with berries and almond-meal. A classic French recipe that's super easy to make.
Romantic Food Gifts
Chocolate dipped strawberries are quick and easy to make, and delicious! My recipes for chocolate dipped strawberries are a perfect romantic gift idea, or add a touch of glam to a girl's night in!
And the chocolate truffles, they are super easy to make, taste amazing, and you can make a huge batch and package them up all nicely into homemade boxes for all your friends!
