Christmas is around the corner so I thought I would share some super easy, last minute DIY edible gift ideas. All three DIY gift ideas are perfect for a baker, foodie, or HealthNut like me! But really anyone can enjoy these gifts since they are cute looking and taste amazing.
The first runner up is this amazing DIY Pecan Maple Butter in a jar gift idea. I used my friend Davida’s recipe from her blog: The Healthy Maven and simply put the butter in these cute mini mason jars and finished it off with a recipe tag and some twine. That’s seriously how easy it is plus the recipe itself took me no more than 10 minutes to prepare.
The second DIY gift idea is this homemade vanilla extract, which is the perfect gift to give to someone you, know who loves to bake. Mind you its nice to make this ahead of time since it takes a few weeks to turn into vanilla extract but it will look cute stored on a shelf until ready to use. Homemade vanilla extract is the easiest thing to make since it consists of 2 ingredients: Vodka or bourbon and vanilla beans. I got inspired by this awesome post from Seeded at the Table. You can find the labels I used from the same site which I linked below 🙂
The third DIY gift idea is this cupcake in a jar, which not only looks super Pinterest but you, can enjoy right away! Who doesn’t want a delicious cupcake delivered to them for the holidays? It’s basically a gift and dessert in one. You can use any cupcake recipe for this gift idea but I highly recommend making my Gingerbread Cupcakes recipe, which tastes and looks very festive. If you’re short on time you can always buy some cupcakes from the grocery store and fill up a bunch of mason jars to give out at the dinner table or to friends and family who stop.
