Innovative edible gifts for holidays and hosts

Handmade treats that are sure to please!

When it comes to holiday gifts for neighbours, teachers and friends, something consumable is always appreciated. I love preparing edible gifts and it’s really fun to come up with new ideas each year to suit the tastes of my recipients. I also look for new packaging options each to make my handmade gifts look really special. I presented a few delicious ideas in my latest Shepherd’s Fashions Coffee Talk video segment with Marlene Shepherd and Kathie Donovan. You can click on the titles below to jump to the recipes and be sure to search through the Edible Gifts category on the right hand side of this website to access more ideas.
