If you like to make your own holiday gifts, here are a few ideas. Tina, from The Essential Herbal, has a GREAT tutorial for making your own spiced pomanders. You just need a few simple ingredients from the grocery store and a bit of time.
Homemade biscotti is one of my favorite gifts to get and to give. We have a few recipes on our website: Lavender Honey Biscotti and Chocolate Orange Biscotti. They age well, travel beautifully, and are delicious dunked in coffee, hot chocolate, or red wine. :)
I made a big batch of Apple Pie Hooch last weekend - it's shelf stable, and, packged in pretty recycled bottles, makes a wonderful gift for your friends and family that enjoy adult beverages.
Along the same theme, I made spiced rum for a gift last weekend. It was ridiculously fast and easy, and looks and smells beautiful! :)
