Gingerbread Syrup

Infused with wintry flavors like cinnamon and ginger, this homemade gingerbread syrup would make a great gift for any sweet tooth on your list. Drizzle it into a latte, apple cider, hot cocoa – or even over pancakes – for an instant burst of holiday cheer! Package it up in a pretty bottle and tie it up with baker’s twine and berries for a festive look.

Homemade cookies

If you’re like us, a perfect holiday gift could very easily come in the form of a giant stack of chewy cookies. Which cookie is up for the job though? We love snickerdoodles all year, but especially around the holidays – they’re not only incredibly easy to make – they will make your kitchen smell like heaven! Get the recipe.

Herb & Spice Infused Sea Salt

Going in a more savory direction, an herbed or spiced sea salt is versatile enough for any culinary aficionado in your life. This two-in-one recipe includes our favorite citrus-cumin salt (hello, avocado toast lovers!) and an herbes de Provence version, for those who prefer the sun-soaked flavors of southern France in their cooking. Divide your final batch into little mason jars and tie them up with ribbon.
