Homemade edible gifts have a personal touch that shop-bought presents just can’t beat. This year, show your kids’ teachers how much you appreciate their hard work and care (and save a few pennies while you’re at it!) by giving them something unique, tasty and made at home.
Sweet gift ideas
Christmas biscuits are always a winner. Try these pistachio, cranberry and white chocolate biccies, go gluten-free with this clever mint chocolate chip cookie recipe or make the cute shortbread tea biscuits below.
A clever alternative to ready-to-eat biscuits is this cute gingerbread cookie mix, guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face. Add handwritten instructions, and a ribbon or bow if you’re feeling fancy!

If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with chocolate. These double chocolate chunk muffins are a guaranteed hit.
