30 Homemade Food Gifts – Easy to Make!

30 homemade food gifts made from real nourishing food and unprocessed ingredients! You will love these easy to make edible gifts – there is something here for everyone! These homemade gifts are gluten free, allergy friendly, refined sugar free, some are paleo friendly too!

 


If you have health conscious or healthy foodie friends then these nutritious edible gifts make the perfect present! Homemade food gifts are one of my favourite types of present to give and receive (not just because I love to eat! ) but also because I really enjoying making homemade treats.

There is something special about making your own gifts which are made with love, and, (in my humble opinion) even better if they are full of nutritious unprocessed ingredients that taste good!

This year instead of buying loved ones a whole lot of stuff that they most likely don’t need and may (lets face it) eventually end up in landfill why not give them an edible gift. This is a great way to give something unique that you know will be enjoyed and also happens to be a bit more easy on the environment! Its a win win!

Below is a selection of delicious homemade gifts from some of my favourite food bloggers,  I hope you will find some you enjoy!
