Wrap it up pretty!

I love to bake, so something from the oven is one of my favorite gifts to give!


And wrapping it up pretty just adds a little something extra to your gift.



These are loaves of fresh Italian bread I made with my bread machine. They not only taste good, but smell yummy too! I wrapped them up with red and green striped tea towels and attached little felt ornaments with a ribbon. Ready to pass out to friends!









Pretty, practical and delicious! What could be better?



And I try to keep a few extra baked goods in the freezer for quick and easy gift giving. You never know when you might need just a little something special for someone!

What a fantastic idea. I like to give homemade jams, jellie, etc that I can every summer as well as homemade Christmas cookies. The towel really adds a nice touch! I'll have to keep this idea in mind.

Thanks for the inspiration and happy holidays,
Chris

What a lovely idea! I have bought my hubby a bread maker for Christmas (sshh!) maybe I will do the same next year :)

Such a great gift idea Sharon! I was thinking of how I could add more to the little baskets I do for my son's teachers and putting in the towels would be perfect. Thanks for the great inspiration and for linking this up to the party! :-)
