Last-Minute Homemade Gift Ideas For New Year’s Celebrations

This morning was just like any other morning but something felt different when I looked out the window at one of my favorite and comfy places on earth (my backyard). Gazing at the dusting of snow on the ground and sensing the crispness of the air inspired thoughts of the New Year and my heart was immediately filled with excitement. Soon people around the world gather together with family and friends to welcome 2017!

It’s the time of year when friends and family may invite us over with little or no notice. Who wants to show up empty handed? Stopping at the store to pick up cookies, a box of chocolate or a bottle of wine is nice but it’s not really that personal. I have some delicious, simple and creative last minute homemade gifts that you will feel so good about giving and your loved ones will love and appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Please share your favorite homemade gift ideas, recipes, stories, cooking tips and nutrition nuggets HERE  🙂

Happy New Year! xo
