Make someone happy with these delicious food gift ideas

’Tis the season for giving! Every day it seems there’s another white elephant party or a gift wrapped goodie waiting on your doorstep or work desk. #BLESSED. Naturally, you want to give back to everyone in your circle, but those holiday gift price tags can add up quick.

Here’s some good news from goodNes: Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you can eat! With a little craftiness in the kitchen, you can delight your friends and family with home-made gifts that are tasty, budget-friendly, and look awesome too. Can’t beat that!

Check out some of our favorite recipes that make perfect gifts:

Gingerbread Sandwich Cookies

Nothing says holidays like gingerbread, but maybe you don’t have the patience to construct an entire gingerbread house. Your people will love these double-decker cookies with delicious cream filling. And trust us, they taste much better than a gingerbread house. Get the recipe here.

Peppermint Mocha Cookies

Why spend an arm and a leg on fancy coffee shop drinks when you can make a whole batch of delicious mocha cookies for all your friends? You can even adjust the amount of coffee to make them super strong or subtly smooth. #CoffeeWithFriends Get the recipe here.

Christmas Cookie Trees

Trimming the tree has never been so delicious! These adorable treats are miniature Christmas trees made out of cookies, and are oh-so-Instagrammable. Just pick your favorite cookie flavor - It's even better if you have more than one - and decorate them however your heart desires! #CallingAllCookieLovers Get the recipe here.

Harvest Apple Hand Pies

Warm flaky crust packed with gooey cinnamon apples. YUM. Hand out these pockets of pure joy and your friends might just think you’re a bona fide pastry chef! We recommend making a double batch if you really want enough to go around. Get the recipe here.

Abuelita Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

You know what’s better than flowers? An edible bouquet of chocolate dipped pretzels! These treats are super easy to make, super addicting to eat, and we love that they use Abuelita chocolate drink mix for an authentic Latin touch of flavor. Edible bouquets for the win! Get the recipe here.

When it comes to tasty gifts, your own creativity is the only limit. What are your favorite holiday goodie gift ideas?
