This is my favorite time of the year! All the Christmas lights and decorations are starting to go up, Starbucks has their yummy Peppermint Mocha coffee out and my kitchen turns into a bakery. I love to bake cookies and give them as gifts! If you need some easy homemade gift ideas, then you should try baking up some good old-fashioned cookies and give those away, like I do every year.
I started a few years ago baking cookies and giving them away as presents to some folks I see all the time…my hair dresser, my nail tech, the photo lab I go to, just to name a few. And every year they can’t wait to get them, so much so now that I’ve started to bake for more than just Christmastime. I even got a text the other day from one of my friends asking when the baking’s getting started because they were so anxious to get them!
