A Gift of Homemade Cookies!

Grandma Karen's Almond Cookies
Last Christmas we decided to set a price limit on gifts we were going to buy. We arranged that if we wanted to give more than that, it had to be made by us. It gave us a chance to explore our talents and find something we're good at :) As a result, we didn't necessarily stick to the price limit but since it was our baby's first Christmas, we had to spoil her a little bit :-) One of the presents we received was The Gift of Cookies. Grandma Karen is a great baker so she decided she will be sending  her homemade cookies to us each month for one year! We love this awesome idea and I just had to share it on my frugal blog :-) Do you appreciate homemade food? Have you ever received a handmade gift you find precious? If you had to use your talent, what would you create?


  1. Love the idea! I certainly appreciate homemade cookies and cakes!
