Homemade, Last-Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

Pineapple-Jalapeño Tequila from Cupcakes and Cashmere

If you’re still wracking your brain over what to get your dad, your picky little sister, and your weird neighbor who gave you a batch of crumbly fudge, never fear.

And if the thought of going to the mall one more time gives you a raging headache, we’re here for you. Edible, homemade gifts–if you package them up right–are some of the funnest presents to make, and the most delicious ones to receive. Who doesn’t love a cute mason jar full of homemade Nutella? Maybe your crabby uncle–but that’s why you’re giving him those Grinch socks.

Since you don’t need to be wasting any more time, we’ve rounded up a link list of the web’s very best recipes. They’re easy to whip up, have few ingredients, and are guaranteed crowd pleasers.

All it takes is a trip to the grocery store and a little time in the kitchen with a glass of wine and some Nina Simone on the record player. This is what Christmas should feel like!

Apple Cider Caramels for your Midwestern dad

Homemade Mocha Nutella for the chocolate lover in your life

Note: if you need cute containers, head to the hardware store for cheap mason jars, twine, and ribbons. You might want to pick up some colorful cloth and tags of some sort, too, so that you can label each jar for the recipient.
