Make gifts yourself (2): Sweets from the kitchen

Homemade treats from the kitchen are always a great gift, because you just have to spend Christmas time not thinking about the figure, but really can feast! At Christmas, I always have something sweet at home to make someone happy, because at the last minute I always come up with 1000 people to whom I would like to give a little something!

I’ll pack some more packages for a few dear people who are not living near me and send them along with the Christmas mail tomorrow. But now I have to sit down and make Christmas cards so they arrive in time!
