I love making my own treats as gifts for people. It has such a wonderful personal touch, and with that you can save some money. A win-win! I’m kicking off DIY gift week with these candied nuts because they remind me of those delicious smelling nuts in the mall. Do you know those?

    December and the holidays make me happy. I love the festive decor, I love the spirit people are in, and I love to give. Truthfully I do. One thing I know for sure is that homemade gifts are always extra appreciated, and especially when it’s food (duh). Think about it: a gift of something special that you spent time making because you knew the recipient would love it. What is better than that?

    Throughout the year I gift Nutella Jars, Granola (grandma), Apple Butter, Pancake Mix (mom), and so on. Everybody always goes nuts! The one thing that was missing all this time? Personalized labels.

    I’m excited that this week for Healthy Food Friday with American Express I can bring you FREE printable labels that you can use on all of your edible gift giving this holiday season!
