Here are our favourite DIY 2016 holiday gift ideas:
We’re big fans of assembling cooking project DIY kits—it might be just the boost your giftee needs to start some kitchen magic of their own. Here’s inspiration for how to set up an ice cream sundae making kit, breakfast in a box, a bath kit or a cupcake making kit—just assemble ingredients with labels, slip in instructions, and give the gift of fun in a box!
Condiments & Nibbles:
These gifts are easy to make and tasty to nibble on. For the cook in your life, this flavoured salt and this spice rub are sure to be hits. Family movie nights go better with spiced nuts, and things that make breakfast a no-brainer like slow cooker apple butter, cinnamon honey butter and homemade granola are a gift that’ll ensure good mornings for the rest of the year. And, for friends and family with a sweet tooth, you can’t go wrong with the classics—like these easy molded chocolates or a tin of cookies. To find a wide assortment of cookies you can make with your kids, check out our cookie archive!
A pretty jar with drink mix in it will keep giftees toasty-warm. Try a mulled cider kit (level it up with a fragrant pomander), chai tea mix, chai tea with real herbs, or hot chocolate. These hot chocolate truffles are a neat twist on powdered hot chocolate, and they’re sure to make a—ahem—splash!
