A Last-Minute, Stress-Free DIY Christmas Gift Idea

9_Only one week before Christmas. Are you ready, friends? Or might you be in need of a last-minute gift or two?

If so, I can help!

One of my favorite gifts to give is a loaf (or mini loaf) of homemade bread, paired with tea or coffee in a holiday-themed gift bag. It’s heartfelt, thoughtful, and useful. And best of all, it lends itself perfectly to minimal stress at the last minute.

What You Need

For the homemade bread

For the accompanying tea/coffee

  • Tea: Check out this article to get ideas on teas that pair well with different kinds of bread. This blog post from Great Harvest Bread Co. offers up additional suggestions, too. Hint: Everyone seems to agree that the flavors of pumpkin bread and chai complement one another perfectly.
  • Coffee: The website Coffeeinated features this article about coffee pairings and foods, including breads. According to this article, try pumpkin and banana bread with Colombian or Costa Rican roasts.

For the packaging

  • Aluminum foil, to wrap around the bread
  • Wrapping paper, to wrap around next (I’m using this brown craft paper this year, for a rustic effect.)
  • Ribbon
  • Tissue paper
  • Holiday-themed gift bag

And that’s it! Heartfelt, thoughtful, useful. Happy Holidays, friends. 🙂
