10 Healthy Homemade Holiday Gifts

’Tis the season for holiday baking! If you’re looking for a way to bring everyone on your list a little cheer, it’s time to unfurl your apron and start flipping through recipes. Maybe you have visions of gingerbread, shortbread, dipped in chocolate, dusted in sparkling sugar. Or maybe you’re trying to escape the cookie parade, in which case, savory gifts can feel like a breath of fresh air. Try nuts, pickles, and olive oil, or make treats more nourishing, with whole grains and less sugar. Everyone could use a cute little jar of granola, done up with a bow.

Here are ten homemade gifts that will bring you and yours health and happiness this year.
