Jam is a great gift to give not only because a person can invest in many different types of jam but because it's the gift that keeps on giving: Jam will last for quite some time before spoiling.
Popcorn is a staple of most households: it's a great snack for people of all ages and tastes. During the holiday season, people can take this favorite snack and put a holiday twist on it by adding caramel, chocolate, or even peanut butter. Flavored popcorn is a favorite snack when it's cold and the family is gathering to spend time with one another. Additionally, this gift is easy to make and can be placed in decorative tins or jars and boxes.
Gingerbread houses are another great gift you can give that is as creative as it is tasty. You can make a gingerbread house from scratch and present it during the holidays.
