I love a homemade gift. This is because I know the person who made the gift put a lot of time and effort into the gift they choose for me. Homemade treats takes time and you may put a lot of work into these gifts, but in the end, they are worth it! Here is a list of 7 easiest treats to make and give away, this holiday!

Santa Truffles

Use pre-made truffles and dip them in melted chocolate. Dab a small amount of pink frosting, flatten mini marshmallows to use for the beard. Cut a red fruit slice in half to use for the hat and mini vanilla chips for the trim. Use a mini red M&M for a nose and mini chocolate chips for the eyes.

Again, use a pre-made truffle and dip in melted chocolate. Use mini pretzels for the antlers and a red mini M&M for the nose. Mini chocolate chips make perfect eyes.


Candy Trees

Crush a handful of peppermint candy canes. Use a Christmas tree candy mold and place the peppermints in the bottom. Cover with white, melted chocolate. When hardened, remove from mold and place in a mini tub filled with red and green M&M’s.


Pretzel Fun

Melt white chocolate and dip mini pretzels in the chocolate. Roll in red or green sprinkles. Arrange in a mini tub and cover the entire set in clear plastic wrap. Tie with red and green ribbon.

You can make Santa pretzels the same way as above, except use mini marshmallows for the beard, mini red M&M’s for a nose and mini red gum drops for a hat.


Mini Mittens

This cue decoration is quick and easy! Use a child size mitten as a pattern and use the material from one of your children’s baby outfits. Make two mittens and attach together with yarn. I did this with an outfit from my youngest son and we hang it on the Christmas tree every year. This is also nice to give to grandparents as a gift.


Photo Ornaments

This is an easy way to capture a memory every year. Snap photos on Christmas morning and use the best, or funniest, or sweetest ones for a keepsake ornament for grandma and grandpa or aunts and uncles next year. These are gifts that will never be thrown away and they will always be appreciated and loved.

I hope at least one of these ideas has inspired you to get busy and make a unique gift this year for your family and friends. Which one did you like the most?
