Holiday Bread Gifting Ideas


GO FOR A MORE SIMPLE LOOK FOR THOSE WHO DON'T CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS

Add bows that are not the traditional Christmas colors. I think some beautiful gold ribbon, some twine, and some dainty lace make for a perfect non-Christmas (yet, festive) look.

Add some natural elements like airdried citrus or some foraged leaves. Yes, don't be afraid to go around town looking for tree leaves. My favorite ones to forage during the holiday season are the leaves off of evergreen trees.



ADD A SIMPLE GIFT TAG

Nothing makes a gift feel more like a gift than a gift tag.

USE SARAN WRAP

To wrap and transport your baked goods use saran warp. Make sure your baked goods are completely cooled before wrapping. If your baked goods are not completely cooled before wrapping, your treats will get soggy.


ADD SOME FESTIVE ORNAMENTS

Nothing says Christmas more than ornaments. Plus, after your friends and family eat all of the goodies, they have a keepsake to forever remember you baked for them.


ADD A PEPPERIMINT

How cute it that?!


BOX IT ALL UP

Use a shipping box and cut off the top flaps to create an open faced box.

Also, some great places to find free boxes are at Costco and your local grocery stores. Stores always have a bunch of leftover boxes from stocking their shelves. They are more than happy for you to take as many as you want.

Stage the final boxed look to your heart's content.

Here are some examples of how I styled my boxes.



MAKE YOUR OWN ORNAMENTS

Please let me know if you want me to create a blog tutorial on how I created my handmade ornaments. I would love to share my recipe!



UPCYCLE PEANUT CANS

Take the labels off of peanut cans and place your baked goodies into it. Of course, decorate the cans with festive vibes.


ADD A HOT COCOA AND HOT TEA BAR

I added chocolate, instant hot cocoa mix, hot tea bags, loose leaf tea, biscuits, peppermints, and marshmallows.

Get creative and add whatever you like with your hot cocoa and hot tea. 

Some other things you can add to the bar is some honey, some syrup and even some candy canes.


DON'T BE AFRIAD TO PILE THE GOODIES ON TOP OF EACH OTHER

I think piling all the goodies to top of each other makes for a very whimsical final look. Plus, the gift receiver will feel like they are on a treasure hunt. 


CELLOPHANE WRAP

Place your baked goodies on a high quality disposable plastic plate. Then, wrap it up with some cellophane wrap. Add a festive bow and, ta da, a beautiful presentation.


ALUMINUM CATERING PAN

Instead of a cardboard box, use a large aluminum catering pan.


CANNED GOODIES

Make and add any homemade canned goods to the gift box.

I made some homemade honey preserved nuts. I used my labeling machine to label each jar.

Also, I use old pasta jars to can my preserves. It adds to the homemade charm. Don't you think?


Homemade canned goods add a beautiful aesthetic to the final gift box. In my opinion, it's worth the extra work!
