I adore the weekend after Thanksgiving. It's long and replete with leftovers, and it's also when I get seriously excited about planning Christmas gifts. This weekend is still early enough to start a project like DIY vanilla or cocktail bitters, or to make a big batch of caramels, but not too early to freeze some dough for homemade puppy treats.

If you need a few fresh ideas for homemade holiday gifts this year, take a look! We have 15 homemade gifts from the kitchen (or for the kitchen) that you can get a head start on this weekend.
