What is an edible gift?
An edible gift is a homemade present that can be eaten or stored away for future use. This can include preserved items like jams and chutneys, sweet treats like chocolate truffles, cookies and biscuits or even homemade alcohol.
Why do we give food as a gift?
Gifting food to a friend or family member is a great way to show your love and appreciation for them. Making edible gifts shows your care for them comes from the heart – and everyone knows the way to someone's heart is through their stomach!
How do you package edible Christmas gifts?
There are many ways you can package edible gifts, but the key factor is to ensure that your homemade food does not break or get damaged. Your gift wrapping should form a protective layer, which is why baking paper or an airtight container is recommended. Here are two different ways you can package your edible gifts:
1. For jams, chutneys and preserves
Of course, preserved items are already 'packaged' in a sense, being in a sterilised jar or container. However, adding a festive touch with a ribbon and small card will present your gift beautifully. For a final bit of Christmas, we suggest placing a sprig of Christmas bush, holly or mistletoe in there as well!
2. For cookies and biscuits
Wrapping up cookies or biscuits is quite easy when you've got a box or container to put them in. For a Christmas gift, wrapping the box in wrapping paper on the inside before placing the biscuits in will make it nice and merry!
