Homemade edible gifts are thoughtful, affordable to make, delicious, and fun to receive. I love making Mason jar cookie mixes to give as gifts during the holidays. They also make a great take-home gift when hosting a holiday party or Christmas cookie exchange. I made these one year for my annual holiday cookie exchange and they were a huge hit. Everyone will appreciate you saving them a little time in the kitchen. Food is love and what could be better than a delicious homemade gift from the heart?!
