Easy Homemade Food Gifts For Christmas

I love giving homemade food gifts to friends and co-workers. Today I am sharing 21 of my favorite homemade Christmas food gifts! Drinks, snack mixes, yummy flavored butters, red velvet brownies, nuts, cakes, and more! There is definitely something for everyone. 

All the recipes are easy to make and taste great. Each recipe makes enough to share with several people. Just grab some mason jars and cellophane bags and you are ready to gift! I will be making several of these recipes over the next couple of weeks. These are perfect for friends, co-workers, neighbors, teachers, and bus drivers. Have a baking day next weekend and mark everyone off your list!
