  1. I think homemade gifts are the very best kind! I love the idea for chia seed jam…something really out of the ordinary!

  2. In my opinion homemade holiday gifts, especially in food form, are the greatest gifts you can give. Such a great list!

  3. I have been connected to your site for many years now and I love it. However I seem to be having trouble accessing my email on Internet Explorer whenever your site name comes up the system goes down. Is anyone else having this problem? I don’t know if it is virus but I may have to cancel receiving your site emails because it is creating a real problem. Please let me know if you know of a problem.

    1. Hi Diane-thanks for letting us know. Can you access the site without using your email or is it just through the emails? I haven’t heard of this problem before, but we will look into it! Sorry for the trouble!

  4. I love gifting food. It is like you are giving a little piece of yourself, your time and your heart when you do.

  5. Great reminder how simple giving homemade gifts can be. And many times, they seem to mean a lot more when someone took the time and effort to make something. Last year we made homemade candles and Applesauce Banana Bread. This year I’m going to try your kettle corn and cinnamon roasted almonds. They both seems pretty easy….yet so gourmet. Thanks for compiling the list!
