I love homemade gifts, they taste great, add a personal touch and also make people feel special. One other great aspect is knowing the ingredients you put in them. That said as days are running its time to start prep for the celebrations and why not pack edible gifts as a thank you gift for your guests. Or if you are attending a party at your friends place then pack these to gift them. Trust me they will love it and appreciate it beyond words. I had got these cute message cutters from a review I had done a while ago for Gourmet Co, you can check the post here. You can pick similar cookie cutters in any online or baking supply stores. If you are not the type who does not have patience to do royal icing or fondant or don't have time incase you are looking at a large batch then these cutters are the answer. 



Ever wondered why Christmas is known for gift giving? although the real meaning of giving and reason for Christmas is the Birth of Christ more often everyone tends to forget the real meaning for Christmas these days. Jesus is the reason for the season. 


The BIBLE clearly says that "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whomsoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16

Lets remember that God's act of giving should be remembered in all our acts of giving and receiving. Lets be kind and generous to give to others and also give to the ones who have no one to give them gifts. Do an act of kindness to spread God's love this season, remember even a small act of kindness God will never forgot and reward you for your good deeds. Lets be like our Father in Heaven to give with a willing heart and give without limits for He is our creator. Let there be Christ in Christmas. Let Him be yours today so that He can be with you forever.
