Who’s got the money, these days, to be buying expensive pre-packaged food gifts for every occasion?
Giving homemade food gifts created in your own kitchen adds a personal touch.
You have to admit, fresh made foods without preservatives just taste so much better too.
Here are some great frugal food gifts to make and give as gifts. Plus, some food gift baskets that are easy to make.
Food Gift Ideas
One of my favorite baking utensils is the mini-loaf pan. It makes just the right sized loaf of specialty bread — perfect for gift giving!
For one holiday season, I made gift baskets that included a loaf each of banana bread, cranberry bread, and lemon poppyseed bread. Everybody raved over the simple baskets, and I was able to stretch a small budget, while still maintaining the holiday spirit.
Another great homemade food gift — for those times when you want to do something for a sick friend — is a mason jar filled with hearty homemade chunky chicken soup. Tie a square of bright calico cloth over the top with a colorful ribbon, and your friend will be feeling better in no time!
To make your homemade food gifts look really professional, you can even make accurate nutritional labels. It’s a snap, but it looks like you went to a lot of bother.

I’ve been involved in RVing for 50 years now — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller, you’ve got a good idea of who I am.
