Hope your holiday preparations are bringing you some festive fun! The last week before Christmas completely snuck up on me this year – so at the moment I am descending into flour-in-hair batter everywhere mode. It’s baking time in our itty bitty cozy kitchen.
So instead of posting photos of the disaster zone where the cookies & biscuits & jams & breads will magically appear from, here are some last-minute gift ideas:
Yes, I’m a fanatic. But really – The Art of Simple Food is a wonderful cookbook filled with basic tried-and-true recipes and makes a lovely gift.
I don’t know what the local spot is for you, but around here there’s nothing better than Scratch by Willard Beach. Use some sneaky detective skills to discover where your lucky loved one likes to grab their coffee/baked goods and pick up a gift card.
If you like to give handmade presents but can’t craft for another second, Martha has plenty of edible gift ideas here. Buuuuut if you’re running low on holiday energy, I highly recommend finding a local baking company or store to support – your friends & family will be happier with your well-rested good company than with a frazzled red-eyed version of yourself surrounded by a mess of handmade holiday-ness.
(Can you tell who’s scaling down on handmade gifts this year? No more knitting through till 7am on Christmas for this girl)
