What are the best food gifts for Christmas

There are so many great treats you can make for Christmas gifts for kitchen lovers. You can even make several different things and then create baskets of treats. For example, you might make some chocolate covered Oreos, sugar cookies, and candy bark and split the treats among several tins. In one afternoon, you can create gifts for a lot of people.

Yule logs, cheesecakes, and even bundt cakes are amazing things to make for those that you want to give something more to. Place the cake in a pretty container and deliver in the days leading up to Christmas. Not only will they enjoy the gesture, but they’ll love that they have one less dessert they have to make for their friends and family that will be visiting!

Freeze Christmas baked goods for gifts

If you love to bake, spend a bit of time in the weeks leading up the big day doing what you love. You can freeze many Christmas baked goods for later. Cookie dough, for example, can even be frozen and baked as needed. This allows you to make your cookies ahead of time and bake them fresh right before giving.
