Who doesn't like receiving homemade treats? For something different this year, why not bake some cookies or a cake for a fun homemade gift?

I love baking gifts and packing them up in little boxes or clear bags, then sealed with a ribbon or string.


I have included some of my favourite recipes. With some cookies and biscuits, recipes for festive inspiration. Once baked, most of the cookies will last for a few days if sealed correctly.
