With less than two weeks until Christmas now is the perfect time to start making some delicious edible gifts for friends and family.


We’ve collected our favourite ideas from around the world so all you have to do is get baking.

German Cookies

Spekulatius cookies as they are known in Germany are packed with cinnamon, cloves and cardamon and topped off with sweet icing. Perfect to prepare in advance and then have fun decorating with the whole family.

Italian Inspired Biscotti

We all love a biscuit to dunk our coffee and Italian biscotti are are the pinnacle. Spice things up and create this version that looks like bacon.

DIY Cookie Jars

We’re not completely sure of the origin of this idea but what we do know is cookies are available by the truckload in America so we’ll go with that. Grab a jar and fill with dry ingredients to make the perfect gift.

West Country Fudge

Fudge is a staple of the west country and one of the most adaptable recipes on earth. Why not make a batch and add your own flavours for friends and family this year. We love this Christmas fudge recipe from Sainsbury’s.
