Homemade Gifts from the Farm

I love homemade Christmas gifts--especially ones that are very practical and involve food :)

It's not always easy to come up with a great homemade gift but below are some ideas that I think any homesteader would appreciate:

1. Functional (and beautiful) wreaths using homegrown goodies such as garlic, peppers, or fresh herbs


2. Homemade dried soup mixes

3. Homemade specialty soaps

4. Knitted or Crocheted items, such as hats, scarves, washcloths or throws

5. Herb infused oils and simple syrups

6. Jams, Jellies, Preserves (and the like)

7. High Quality Meats (if it's something produced on the farmAre any of you doing homemade gifts this year and can you add to this list?

  1. That garlic wreath is amazing! I want to make candles but when it comes down to it I'm usually just so much better at giving food since I'm in the kitchen so much anyway. What's not to love about something edible huh?
