One of the greatest joys of Christmas is gift giving - showing your loved ones how much you care for them by taking time to prepare something just for them. The preparation that goes into giving a gift is just as exciting as receiving one -- from deciding what possible sweet surprise could put a Santa-wide smile on your loved one’s face, right down to what wrapper you could use for it (tinsel or twine?).  All gifts are great, but homemade delectable dishes will really help get you and your loved ones’ hearts racing knowing the effort, time, and love that was put into the gift.

Why not make handmade homemade gifts for your loved ones this season by starting out with some delectable Fantastically Fruity Fruitcake Bars and Amazing Apple Cookies? Some ideas to package these treats are craft boxes that you can get in gift wrapping stores, woven baskets that you can wrap with cellophane and decorate with ribbons, or plastic food containers that you can design using glossy and glittery stickers. Add a personalized touch with a handmade card and you’re good to go!

Here are more recipes that you can give as gifts to make your loved one’s Christmas extra merry:
