I havent got a whole lot of money this year so thought i would make all my friends snowman soup instead of buying them gifts.
What would you think if you receive this as a gift for Xmas?
I have told them all i wont be buying gifts this year but still wanted to get them something.

That’s an awfully sweet gift and I personally would love. I don’t want friends spending money on me, I would much rather have something thoughtful like that.

We make this every year and I love them! I give them to our mail lady, coworkers, ect and they love them. I think it’s a sweet gift

I like homemade gifts, I’ve only received one that I sort of shook my head at. I was given a steak rub with a medium, rare, well done, pin things. But I can’t eat red meat, and everyone knows that. But it was still a thoughtful gift, I just gave it to my red meat eating brother.

That’s awesome. I’d love it if someone got that for me. Then again, I’m a sucker for chocolate and sugar.
It’s the thought that counts!

@MrsN14: Its my first time making them, i saw the idea on here actually. I have used bits of ribbon that i had left over from the wedding and just bought the cheapest acetate cones i could find (they actually have a small hole in the bottom but the chocolate so far hasnt escaped so i think we are safe! )
I wanted green and red ribbon but just cant afford it.
Im usually one to buy really great thoughtful gifts so im a little bummed that i cant. I know i would appreciate something like this but i was having second thought after making them.

I even stole the candy canes off the tree. My husband will not be happy, so i made him brownies to make up for it!

@ChocolateLime: Super cute!
Last year I made sugar scrubs for all of the women in my life. They all loved it!

I love that gift idea! My family has always gifted each other with food, homemade desserts and such. To me it means alot more than something someone just picks up at the store.

DH’s family has a tradition that I really appreciate about focusing on either experiences or consumables rather than “stuff” for gift-giving occasions. This type of thing is perfect! I just may steal your idea …

I like homemade gifts – they’re thoughtful and you know they’ve taken time over it.
