4 Simple Savory Homemade Gifts

I love the gesture of giving homemade gifts during the holiday season. It is such a heartfelt way to show someone you care.


All of my friends don't want me to spend money on them, they would much rather have a homemade craft or edible gift that demonstrates a fun personal touch. Here are some of my favorite simple savory homemade gift ideas. These are all easy to make and can be tied up in pretty plastic bags or boxes and given as gifts.

altRoasted Candied Pumpkin Seeds: Pumpkin seeds are not just for Halloween, bake up some of these and package them in a baggy tied with a pretty ribbon for almost any occasion!



Stovetop Kettle Corn: This sweet/salty popcorn is a delicious sweet and savory treat. It is really great treat for kids to make for their friends.



Parmesan Cheese Straws: These salty straws are perfect for the entertainer in your life. Make a bundle and take them to a friend fresh from the oven. They can use them as a party appetizer or for Christmas Eve with their family.


Sweet & Savory Spiced Walnuts: I adore giving these walnuts as gifts – they are ideal for munching on all holiday long. Package them in a to-go box and give them to your friends for some festive holiday cheer.
