15 Holiday Gifts from the Kitchen

This season, aim to practice sustainable gift giving!  What’s better than a gift that can be recycled, reused and re-loved?  How about a homemade edible gift from the kitchen that’s been prepared with love and perfectly packaged in a trendy, reusable jar? Check, check, check and check!

I’ve asked my fellow nutritionist foodie friends for their go-to ‘labor of love’ gifts that their friends and loved ones can’t get enough of during the holiday season.  From staple kitchen ingredients to baked goodies-we’ve got you covered.

Let these simple, homemade holiday treats from the kitchen be your inspiration for curating the perfect gift giving list!
