DIY: Do-It-Yourself Holiday Food Gifts

For the myriad of reasons that one is a DIYer Pinterest is a resource unto itself. And I am a Pinterest marveler, the pictures themselves stir up many emotions from I can do that, to I want that, to I’m going there, or I’ve been there and the list goes on and on. Pinterest is the most incredible, addictive waste of time that’s come along, unless you know how to use it. Some people have fantastic boards with pictures and links to exactly what you’re looking for and others are just, well, not what you’re looking for, it’s the weeding out that takes time. Pinterest appeals to many people on many levels. I use it for a variety of reasons, one of which I collect information as a resource for SouthFloridaFoodandWine.com.

This year for the holidays I’m going au naturale, I’ve decided to be a DIYer. Everyone is getting homemade food gifts from me and mine. I haven’t baked in a while so I thought, why not. As I was looking for packaging inspiration on Pinterest I got caught up, as inevitability you do on Pinterest, and found some really doable and impressive gift ideas. I’ve highlighted a few of my favorites in the pictorial and as always I invite you to take a look at my Pinterest Holiday Shopping DIY Food Guide for some inspiration of your own.
