Creative Christmas: Homemade Gifts from Your Kitchen

6 Comments | Written on December 5, 2011 at 11:00 am, by

We all know the jokes about the Christmas fruitcake that comes in the mail and ends up as a door stopper. Sadly, that mythical fruitcake (like something out of National Lampoon‘s version of Christmas) seems to have tarnished what is an otherwise sweet and thoughtful Christmas gift idea: homemade gifts right from your kitchen. If you’re like us, you no doubt have a whole list of people you’d like to spread some holiday cheer to—neighbors, coworkers, friends. So when a Christmas card doesn’t feel like enough, but you’re not exactly going to put an iPad in the stocking of everyone you know, give them something special this season that comes with a warm and homey touch.

    Lakelady,
    I agree 1,000 percent!!!
    Makes me think there are other sites that are better. And, both of these ideas are kinda lame. Gosh, I never thought of those ideas before.

    Two items? That’s the big Creative Christmas Homemade Gifts From Your Kitchen? How disappointing. I was hoping for at least 10 items I could make, and I got 2. Sheesh!

      • With havin so much written content do you
        ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
        My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.
