vanilla extract brewing in my basement, and I'm planning some very fun gift-related posts for you in the coming weeks.
All my gift-related posts are going to be a part of a four-week series by the Modern Alternative Mama Team, of which I am a part! Starting next Friday, a different blog will host Homemade Holiday each week for four weeks. I'll be hosting one of the weeks and I'm SO excited! The host will also link to related posts on other MAM team sites. So you're going to get a ton of awesome gift ideas!
So, do you need some no-brainer gift ideas?
I know I do. I've been trying to make almost all the gifts we give for Christmas for the last several years. Some years, this has been rather stressful, as I try to make something really special for each person. It has become more stressful with two kids in the mix. So this year, I'm trying to go even simpler. Baked goods will definitely be a large part of the gifts we give this year!
Why give baked goods?
- Baked goods don't fill people's homes with more stuff.
- If you already bake, it's just a matter of baking a little more and giving it away. Easy!
- If you have kids, baking is a great way to involve them in the gift-making process.
- People love to eat!
So here are five [nourishing] baked goods you can give away as gifts.
Five Baked Goods to Give as Gifts
#2. Have some rhubarb in the freezer? Remind your friends and family that spring will come again with a pan of this delightful Rhubarb Coffeecake.
#3. Who doesn't love a loaf of homemade bread? This Soaked Honey Oatmeal Bread is a nice reprieve from sugar-laden treats. This would make a great gift for a teacher or the host of a holiday party.
#4. Last year I gave away pint-sized jars of my Perfect Soaked Granola to extended family members. I make this granola all the time so it was a breeze to make a big batch and jar it up. And they were so cute!
