The Christmas Countdown is getting close to zero and oh no, that’s how many Christmas presents I have! Every year I aim to get my Christmas gifts done early, but every year I find myself in the same position. A week before Christmas and no presents under the tree. If you’re in the same position then you’re in luck, ’cause I’ve got the hang of last-minute gift giving. It’s really very simple!

Give the gift of food! There are many reasons why giving food is your best bet for last-minute gift giving…

  1. No one wants to battle mall crowds, but groceries and craft stores aren’t too bad!
  2. You can knock out multiple gifts with one recipe.
  3. It’s budget friendly.
  4. Your friends and family will love that you spent time making them something special.
  5. Everyone eats food!

Check out all these cool, last-minute food gifts. The possibilities are endless!
