DIY – 3 Healthy Edible Christmas Gift Ideas

There’s nothing more thoughtful than a homemade gift. Although some may see them as tacky or cheap, I personally think a DIY present made with effort, care and consideration is one of the best ways to show your love and appreciation for a person. Nothing says ‘you mean the world to me’ better than taking the time to create something one-of-the-kind, special, unique, just for them. It’s a simple gesture but it speaks volumes.

Edible Christmas Gift

It’s not always easy to know what to gift a person when making something from scratch but, from my experience, you can never go wrong with food. To help you out this Christmas, I’ve put together 3 DIY healthy edible gift ideas to give to the people you love. They couldn’t be easier to make and there’s truly something for everyone. Nut butter addicts, chocolate lovers and breakfast connosiors. I know whoever you’re treating this Christmas is going to love them!

I picked up all my gift-wrapping supplies from Paperchase.

Sticky Toffee Pecan ButterEdible Christmas Gift

For the friend who never fails to share their porridge on Instagram each morning, the little gift of nut butter will be a true heaven sent. But, rather than presenting a regular jar of Meridian, which I’m sure most nut butter fiends sample on the regular, why not make give a special edition homemade jar instead? It takes just 20 minutes and is so easy to whip up. You could use any nut and pair it with whatever flavours you like but my personal favourite is sticky toffee pecan butter. It’s decadent, slightly sweet and sticky – amazing on absolutely everything. And the best part? It is the most minimalist you can get when it comes to wrapping – all you need is an old empty nut butter jar, a little ribbon and you’re good to go!

Mince Pie GranolaEdible Christmas Gift

There is something so welcoming and homely about granola that it translates into the perfect gift for someone you truly care about.
