19 Yummy Homemade Gifts (DIY Gifts for Foodies Week)

~ From end-of-the-year teacher gifts, and gifts for coaches or bus drivers … to hostess gifts that are perfect all year long … and even to homemade holiday gifts (yeah, you’ll wanna tuck these ideas away for December!) … we’ve got a whole week filled with inspiring DIY gifts that are deliciously easy and fun to make! ~

Yummy Homemade Gifts {DIY Gifts for Foodies} {Two Healthy Kitchens}

Today’s post is all about yummy, edible gifts and goodies that really show you care!

Some of them – like the homemade granola recipes, marmalade, nut butters, and spiced nuts – keep really well, so they’re ideal for making in large batches to give out all season long. What easy, so-much-more-personal-than-store-bought teacher gifts and holiday hostess gifts! Package them in darling little jars or pretty bags tied with colorful ribbons for a lovely presentation that’ll make anyone feel special!

Other ideas – like the DIY “edible arrangements” fruit bouquets and veggie bouquets – are fantastic because they can double as big-impact centerpieces for parties. Besides thank-you gifts, they’re also terrific hostess gifts – gorgeous additions to any picnic or holiday buffet! And so special as centerpieces for bridal and baby showers, or ladies’ luncheons!

So get cookin’  … and be sure to stop back all week long to check out all our other gift ideas! (Sneak peek: we’ve got pretty herb gardens, gifts in jars, homemade spice blends and lots, lots more ….)
