Gift cards are great and all, but few things can compare to homemade goodies from a friend’s kitchen. Smartly wrapped with a few cooking tools or accessories, mixes for cocoa, soups and pancakes are tasty, unique and something friends will treasure over the busy holiday season. This year give something that’s priceless.
