Holiday Hodgepodge!! {80 Homemade Treats, Gifts, & Crafts}

I love the holiday season… it symbolizes cheer, good food, and laughter.  {And sometimes stress, ’tis true, but that’s what the food and cocktails are for!}  While I typically only post recipes and food-related tid-bits on here, I thought I’d branch out for a little holiday hodgepodge post… a one-stop-shop for holiday gifts, food, drinks, and decor!  I’ve asked some friends in the blogging community to contribute their favorite holiday goods and goodies… a plethora of things to make both in and out of the kitchen!  There are crafts for kids, gifts for mom, drinks to enjoy with friends, and snacks to munch with fam!!

Here’s a break-down of what’s here:

-hors d’oeuvres & small bites

-holiday cocktails & bevies

-main plates

-holiday sweets & treats

-edible gifts

-homemade gifts

-DIY decorations & crafts

Hope you find some delicious delectables to try and some crafty gifts to make!  Happy Holidays!!  ❅ ❄ ❆

About Me
Hi, I'm Natalie! I like to cook, eat, and adventure. I live in a little home with an itty-bitty kitchen, a crazy feline, and a very hungry boyfriend. Lots of cooking and devouring goes down here. Farmer's markets inspire me, as do the seasons and travel. I create simple recipes using wholesome real food. Enjoy!
