Here are 21 simple and wonderful ideas for edible-gifts-in-a-jar that you can put together this holiday season. This is a great way to show friends and family that you care and remember them without having to stress out by breaking the bank or spending endless hours making stuff.
Sometimes the holidays can be overwhelming trying to remember and include friends and family in all of the gift-giving shenanigans. It is my firm belief that the holidays SHOULD NOT be a stressful time of year, but a joyful one to celebrate our beliefs and our relationships with the people that we love!
We’ve spent the last few days sharing some of our favorite yummy gifts that you can share with friends and neighbors. Some of our other favorite food bloggers that we know have contributed a few more ideas that we wanted to share with you today, among them some delicious savory choices! I love how food can bring people together. Some of my fondest memories are associated with food. And it’s usually a safe bet to give to someone…..because everyone needs to eat!
If you are still trying to figure out some last minute gift ideas, we hope that you can get inspired by some of delicious choices below!
