Rock the Holidays with Edible Gifts (My Favorites!)

Rock the Holidays with Edible Gifts My Favorites - Aviva Goldfarb

It might not be wise to admit this, but when someone hands me a wrapped gift, I get a little nervous. We have a pretty small house, I have overstuffed closets and cabinets, and now that I’m in my late 40’s, I have just about everything I need.

So the prospect of getting something else to try to fit into our home stresses me more than it excites me.

I really don’t mean to sound ungrateful.  I so appreciate the thoughtfulness that goes into giving gifts.  I just wish there was a way to tell everyone in my life that the only gifts I want are those that I can consume (wine, spreads, coffee, pickles) or those that I can experience (tickets, restaurants, adventures). 

Generally, I think most of us have more than enough possessions filling up our homes, so, to me, the idea of giving and receiving consumable gifts is most appealing.

If you need a little inspiration for useful and scrumptious edible gifts for the season, please check out my Pinterest board.  It’s got tons of ideas for both homemade and store-bought edible options that the people on your list would likely be delighted to receive.

While suggesting useful presents that don’t take up much room, it would be remiss of me not to mention giving the gift of healthy family dinners and less dinnertime stress!  A membership to The Six O’Clock Scramble is never the wrong color or size and won’t wind up in a landfill. And most importantly, it’s a gift that brings families together.

Also, with every Six O’Clock Scramble membership purchase you make this holiday season (as a gift or for yourself), you will get our new exclusive eCookbook: Easy Holiday Entertaining Guide: 6 Steps to Success Plus Easy Cocktail, Appetizer and Dessert Recipes from The Six O’Clock Scramble.

This is a great gift for you to hold onto or to bundle with other food-related gifts you’re giving.

So tell me, would you prefer to receive an experiential or consumable gift? And what are your favorite edible gifts to give?
