Homemade, Heart Felt Gift Ideas

You don't have to break the bank purchasing gifts this season. Homemade gifts giving from the heart are greatly appreciated when it's from the heart. I love receiving and sharing homemade gifts. Last year I made an assortment of cookies and packaged them in decorative tins,  and a homemade spiced rub packaged in a cute little spice jar with holiday ribbon.
Yesterday I shared hot chocolate station ideas, today how about a homemade hot chocolate gift! Love it!
 For stylish packaging, put chocolate mix into a bag, tie with festive ribbon and nestle it into mug, don't forget the marshmallows!

Roasted Spiced Almonds
These simple metal tins look great with with ribbon or even some leftover wrapping paper.  

Peppermint Cheesecake
I just love the packaging for this one! Peppermint cheesecake package it in Asian vegetable steamer.
Ok.. YUM!
Honey and Macadamia Nut Fudge packaged in pretty gold or silver boxes.
