50+ Homemade Food Gifts That Travel Well (and the Recipes to Make Them!)
Candies, Cookies, and Bark
Snack Mixes, Caramel Corn, and Popcorn
Set your hosts up for a movie night by arriving with a snack mix or flavored popcorn treat. Pack any of these snacks in reusable decorative tins or large reusable silicone snack bags, which double as a bonus gift.
Loaf Cakes and Quick Breads
Set the stage for a brunch or leisurely tea time with a gift of a sweet or savory bread or loaf cake. Tightly wrap the cake or bread in plastic wrap or reusable wrap and tuck it into a gift bag.
Infused Liquor, Vinegar & More
While bottles of infused liquor or vinegar might not be the best for carry-on travel, if you’re driving to your destination, they make great long-lasting gifts. Store the infusions in well-sealed glass jars or bottles, then pack securely and upright in a box for transportation. Tip: Ask your local wine store to save boxes with dividers for you, or make your own dividers with pieces of cardboard. Fill out any spaces in the box with crumpled-up paper or bubble wrap.
