When I think about the holidays, I think about getting busy in the kitchen. Making
food-related gifts for friends and family is a fun way to share your creative side
and put a personal touch on the holiday season.
Think of these "gifts from the kitchen" or Savings from the Kitchen as something you
can make at home for your family to enjoy. To save money you may have many items in
your pantry and will not require a trip to the store. This is also a good time to
share special family items so your love ones can start enjoying family treasures in
It is that time of year where our sense of giving sometimes takes over and we find
ourselves looking at our lists and wondering how on earth we will be able to stick
to a budget.
We know there are all kinds of sweet treats that can be expensive recipes to make
during the holiday season. There are cookies in a jar or brownies in a bag and more
desserts than we can imagine. Try putting together some of these budget friendly gifts
that most are healthier and many supplies are in your pantry. The collection of recipes
This year if you are unable to be together due to COVID-19, you can prepare the Holiday
Breakfast Bread and make a porch drop off. This bread is good out of the oven and
reheats well. By preparing a main breakfast dish you can will be a part of Christmas
morning with family.

canning funnel. They used it to home can vegetables from the garden to feed us during
This is a very inexpensive piece of metal but to me it is priceless because of the
memories. When I pass this family treasure down to the next generation it will be
transfer of non-titled personal property. This is simply sharing property that does
not require a title.
These smaller items can cause family fights. If you can share the items with holiday
gifts you may help your family lessen the chance of arguments in the future. That
is a wonderful gift.
Along with being a wonderful gift it does not cost you anything to share. No cost
items are always budget friendly.
