The Joys of Gifting

8 Gift Ideas to Create with Kids

The official season of Thermomix® gift giving has begun!

Invite the little ones to help create the best homemade (and edible!) gifts! Try one or all of the suggested activities…the important thing is that everyone has FUN!

1. Cookies for Friends

Prepare cookies for friends at school. Choose a cookie dough that you can easily cut out into shapes, like the Sugar Cookie Pastry. Simply make the first letter of your friends name, or if you are up for it , spell out their full name! After decorating the cookies, wrap the cookies in cute homemade packaging that you let the kids decorate with drawings, stickers or ribbons!

2. Chocolate Bars for Your Sister or Brother

Since holiday gift giving only happens once a year, there’s nothing wrong with being extravagant! Make a giant chocolate bar and pick and choose some fun toppings! Wrap it in fun colorful paper and put a smile on your family's face. Try the Peanut Butter Bark or the Chocolate Nougat Bars.

3. Chocolate Truffles for Teachers

Whose heart doesn’t melt for chocolate? Roll the Chocolate Truffles in coconut, nuts or cocoa powder. Make a small handwritten note to go along with the homemade truffles – and don’t forget to try one too!

4. A Box of Cookies for Your Grandparents

Prepare a traditional box with various types of cookies. Wrap it in personalized brown paper and ribbons!

Perfect Christmas Cookies

5. A Jar That Goes Far!

Next time your aunt and uncle are craving something sweet, you will have them covered! Whip up a batch of Ginger Snap Cookie Butter and place it in a personally decorated jar!

6. A Savory Snack for Mom or Dad

Whether you make Pumpkin Butter, crackers or hot sauce, mom or dad will certainly love the homemade touch. Decorate the jar and write a homemade card signed by Santa’s little helper!

7. Gifts to Donate

Give back this season and make several extra special recipes to offer to charities. You can even pick some toys, books and clothes to donate as well!

8. Edible Decorations

To make the holiday countdown more fun, make edible cookie ornaments or even link together multiple cookies with a ribbon to make a beautiful cookie garland! Not only fun to make, but also fun to eat!
