Edible Christmas Gift Recipes

Food gifts including fudge, spiced star biscuits and pomegranate vodka are the perfect way to show someone how much they mean to you at Christmas.

Food gifts are such a pleasure to make and receive, so why not show someone you really care this Christmas by giving them some delicious treats you’ve made yourself.

There’s nothing better than a handmade food gift to make someone feel really special. Start preparing for Christmas by making edible gifts to share with family and friends, from jams, chutneys and homemade liqueurs that are best to make ahead, to Christmas cookies and velvety chocolate truffles, made nearer the time. These food gifts are all the more delicious (and thoughtful) when homemade.

It’s easy to transform these edible Christmas gift recipes into beautifully wrapped presents if you start collecting glass jars and bottles, cellophane, pretty ribbon and tissue paper to package your gifts.

Sweet sticky mini florentines are a staple seasonal favourite, and these light and dark chocolate ones will make a lovely present.

Chutneys, biscuits, fudge, mini Florentines, flavoured gin, ruffles, brownies and shortbread all make wonderful gifts and a lot of the time, many of these can be made in advance so you don’t have to worry too much about being short on time. There’s also something very personal about receiving a gift that’s homemade, as it shows you’ve really put the time and effort into making something you know they will enjoy.
