Distinctive Delights gives tips on making sweet treats for the holidays.  Perfect gift for your loved ones.

Making gifts is personal and budget friendly!


Choose some of your families favorite cookie and dessert recipes - things like grandmas secret molasses cookies, or everyone's favorite puppy chow.


Think about not only giving the gift of goodies - but the recipes for them as well!


Try to include more than one treat - that way everyone can find something they like.


Try to be careful of allergies - if you know someone is allergic to nuts, don't put ANYTHING with nuts in the same packaging.


Find inexpensive packaging - check out the dollar store or craft stores for different holiday-themed ways to 'gift' your goodies:  tins, boxes, bags, anything.  Add a personal flair by choosing something simple and decorating them - GREAT kids project!


Finally - hand deliver!  Nothing beats seeing your friends' and family's faces when they realize you made something special just for them!


When in doubt - reach out!  Don't have time to make something yourself?  That's ok - sometimes even hand-picking treats is great too!  Support local businesses - they not only can make things more personalized, but it's the gift that keeps on giving - especially to your community!
