she cooks, he eats holiday gift guide: edible treats

I don’t know about you, but I love opening up packages and finding delicious treats! I would consider it being one of the benefits of the holidays…an excuse and reason to indulge in sugary goodies. Rather than spend the extra money, why not save and make your own homemade edible treats and ship those out to friends and family members. To me, there’s not more special than receiving something that’s homemade.

Whether you celebrate the holidays or not, it’s always nice to send a small thoughtful gift. Here are a few fun and tasty true-and-tried ideas that will guarantee a smile of anyone’s face…

Using a beautiful basket is a great way to put all these treats together! Mix and match, put a bow on it and ship them out! Also be sure to fill it up with lots of your favorite cookies and candies. Your friends and family will love it! Who could say no to that anyways?  It’s the perfect holiday DIY! :)
