Need an easy, delicious and edible holiday gift idea? Look no further!
This post was written in partnership with my friends at the Egg Farmers of Canada. As always, opinions are my own!
One of my favourite things to do leading up to the holidays is bake – I have fond memories of Christmas baking with my mom; the kitchen full of the sweet and spicy aromas of Christmas.
It was and still is something that I look forward to every year. And I love watching friends and family enjoy the treats that we make – that’s the best part!
Now that my daughter is old enough to be helpful in the kitchen (I say this loosely—she’s four!), we choose recipes and bake together, often singing and dancing to Christmas music in the background. I love that I can give my daughter the same fun and memorable experience that my mom gave me as a kid!
As working parents of three young kids, our lives are full and busy, so we’re finding that we don’t have a lot of extra time to make Pinterest-Worthy homemade holiday gifts, even though we really want to! Instead, we choose one Christmas treat recipe, bake double or triple the amount that we would normally make, and wrap small batches up in festive bags, boxes or jars for our loved ones.
Let me tell you—it’s the BEST gift over. Not only do my daughter and I get a special day together, but I also get to teach her about the spirit of giving. And our friends and family love it. Delicious food can bring so much of joy to someone’s life and makes them feel appreciated and loved.
They’re shining a light on those wonderful people who give back to their communities, and inspiring others to do the same. We wanted to jump on board and give back to the people who mean the most to us and fill our lives with joy.
We chose this Chewy Chocolate Candy Cane Dipped Cookie recipe to make and gift this year. It’s easy and fun –especially the dipping and sprinkling part!
My daughter helped me wrap and deliver our cookie gifts, which was not only super cute to watch, but also brought a big smile to so many faces that we love. It’s the simplest, yet most impactful gift, and that’s why we continue to do it year after year!
