Homemade Food Gifts for Christmas

I love nothing more than feeding the faces of folk and come Christmas I get immense pleasure from spending a day or two in the kitchen making homemade food gifts to hand out to neighbours, friends and family. Giving the gift of food is not only delicious but meaningful and fun.

  1. I love giving homemade food presents at Xmas! Mum and I have been cooking up batches of marmalade and chutney for the last couple of weeks and we have last year’s mincemeat as well, which we’ve been feeding with Brandy like crazy! Some delicious ideas here too!
