It’s only the first official week of November but everywhere you look, it seems that the Christmas season has arrived. Stores are displaying their Christmas merchandise, coffee shops are touting their latest seasonal creations and malls are advertising their Black Friday sales. Too soon? We don’t think so! In fact, we’ve joined up with our friends at RecipeLion to bring you a brand new eBook filled with Christmas cookie recipes, quick and easy gift ideas and homemade Christmas crafts you can give to a loved one. Best of all, How To: 20 Christmas Gifts to Make and Christmas Dessert Recipes is free to download.
Picture your favorite Christmas memory. It could be baking with grandma or gathering around the tree on Christmas morning. What do these two moments have in common? They represent the absolute best aspects of the holiday season – togetherness! When you give a personalized gift, you show how much you care about the recipient. Your little touches and imperfections make the gift unique and memorable. Plus, it’s an indication that you took time to really plan and think about the other person’s interests. Another great way to bring the family together during the holiday season is through baking. When you include loved ones in this activity, you’re creating bonds that last long after the cookies have been taken out of the oven.
