If you're looking for a Christmas gift for someone who has everything, then a homespun present is the perfect solution - you simply can't beat that personal touch.
Proving you've taken extra time and thought to prepare your gift will always be appreciated so why not try baking a round of Christmas cookies
to offer to a loved one - or to take as a gift if you're visiting friends for lunch over the festive period.
Christmas cookie recipes really are so simple to make - sometimes only requiring three ingredients - but dressed up and decorated in the right way they will give your gift extra special meaning. Whether you cook a simple Christmas shortbread biscuit
and tie red ribbons to create Christmas tree decorations or go for a traditional German lebkuchen biscuit recipe
with gorgeous seasonal ingredients like cloves and nutmeg, we guarantee your Christmas cookie gift will put a smile on your recipient's face.
Of course giving Christmas cookies is also cost-effective, leaving you with a budget to splash out on beautiful boxes, decorations and ribbons to wrap up your biscuits, ready to present to friends.
