Thoughtful DIY Food Gifts


By Lavinia Spalding  |  

Gifts from the kitchen send a powerful message that resonates with both giver and receiver. When you enter your kitchen with a generous, happy heart and the intention of making something delicious for someone else, both you and the recipient will feel the pleasure of the intention. If homemade gifts aren’t on your to-do list this year, consider giving sweet and savory offerings like the ones included here, made by purveyors who craft their products with the same passion and care that you would. Either way, the message is the same: May this satisfy your stomach, feed your soul, and fill your heart.
