Q: I need help from The Kitchn readers: I'm looking for suggestions for homemade holiday gifts. Every year I make a special gift for my friends to say "You're awesome. Happy holidays!" In the past I've made homemade tea breads, hot chocolate on a stick with homemade marshmallows, three kinds of roasted nuts, a variety of cookies, and homemade seasoned salts. This year I'm looking for some new creative ideas. Criteria: has to be edible and homemade (not cheating and mixing from a box!), and able to be prepared ahead and stored for at least a week. Any good creative ideas out there? Thanks! Sent by Rebecca Editor: Rebecca, we've done some roundups of gift ideas (see this big one with 40 ideas). But specifically I would suggest trying something savory, like this savory cheese granola or these Raincoast Crisp-esque crackers. Readers, what else would you suggest?
