{My Favorite} Edible Homemade Gift Ideas for Christmas!


Snowman hot cocoa’s

3 baby food jars cleaned, dried, and filled with peppermints, hot cocoa, and marshmallows. Felt hats, buttons, eyes, mouths and noses. Fabric scarves.

I don’t know about you…but I feel blessed more than words can say. ALL of my “needs” are taken care of. Truly- I do not “need” anything for Christmas. I have my faith, health, a home, a swagger wagon, 3 beautiful children, a husband who adores me, awesome friends….I have more than I deserve. Sure, I have major challenges and am often times in the midst of some sort of storm-but honestly, my Faith anchors me and reminds me how much I have in store….that’s the big picture…that’s THE gift, rather…HE is the gift! 

I have a hunch a lot of people reading feel this way- isn’t that something.

Don’t we sometimes get caught up in it all? The shopping, the money, the hoopla and jazz of it?Why?

How do you feel about making a homemade gift? How do you feel about receiving a homemade gift? Are our hearts and minds set on material things? Do we miss out on what is really important…Loving God and loving others {Luke 10:27}?

So many of us feel like giving homemade gifts aren’t “enough”…but once you set your eyes on these adorable mini masterpieces, you may change your mind! What sweet, and thoughtful gifts these are!
