25 Fabulous Christmas Treats

25 Fabulous Christmas TreatsMerry Christmas y’all!

Well, almost Christmas 🙂

I don’t know about you, but I am SO EXCITED. Every year I get majorly excited/nervous for the big day because I’m desperate for my family to open their gifts. I’m just a big gift-giving weirdo and want everyone to open everything rightthissecond. So it’s no surprise that I am TERRIBLE about keeping secrets. I practically have to threaten myself with terrible self-inflicted pain to keep quiet and not spoil everyone’s gifts for them.

That said, I do love giving homemade gifts whenever possible, especially to family, friends, and neighbors. My neighbors are so great (well, except one lady, but we won’t talk about her) and this is the perfect time of year to celebrate them putting up with barking dogs and my dad’s perpetual drum playing.

So I decided to put together a roundup of TWENTY-FIVE different Christmas treats that are perfect for giving as gifts. Most of these treats keep well for up to a week, which means good things if you’re going to be shipping these treats across the country to faraway friends and fam.

I like to make a big batch of about 4-6 different treats and package it up in cute cellophane bags, then tuck the bags into a larger tin or gift bag with a hand-written card for each neighbor and family friend. I also made little boxes for my mom’s coworkers with a variety of treats inside each one. Variety is the spice of life they say, so make a few different things for a spectacular presentation.

Now without further adieu, let’s get baking!!
