homemade food gifts like or not??

cooking is kinda my hobby so food gifts are my choice--this year there maybe pints of bread/butter jalapenos, terrines of liver pate, habenero jelly, fresh roasted coffee--depending on who and/or what you like!! Sometimes there also maybe some stollen made to share also

What do you like to give?????? or receive???

I love homemade gifts, food and non-foods. This year I'm giving homemade vanilla, in small bottles with custom labels. Last year I gave homemade laundry detergent in pretty gift bags with a scoop attached. Another year I knitted dishcloths. I also make breads, candies & cookies. I'd love to try homemade liqueurs or infused oils.

I love food gifts. I'm not much of a cook, so anything different from what I would normally make or buy is good.

I often get (& give) food gifts from my neighbors.
I really appreciate the thought of food gifts, but unfortunately I have celiac disease (no gluten), so can't eat most things! The people I pass the food onto love it though! I've never had the heart to tell people I can't eat their stuff!

My FIL is on a restricted diet due to kidney failure so I'll be making him some homemade soups and spaghetti sauce to keep in his freeze.

Not much of a cook, but love to bake! I make sour cream coffee cakes as gifts for neighbors, vets, teachers. Some years I've made 50 cakes!

All of your food gifts sound lovely!

I give food gifts also: passion fruit-lime curd, pistachio brittle, mango chutney, various small breads. Mostly I look for stuff to make that is not easily available in the stores but super eatable and keeps. The breads can be frozen, the curd and the chutneys are canned and pistachio brittle just keeps.
