Let's be honest: stretching money during the Holiday Season can be a challenge. You wonder
about what kind of thoughtful gifts you can give while keeping an eye on the budget. Well, I can
help with a theme-centered gift around a subject everyone loves at this time of year: food! And,
it fits beautifully with our Christmas Candy Gift Basket!!
Universally, Chocolate is the hands-down favorite of treats. Why not make a collection of some
fabulous recipes & turn it into a warm, heart-felt gift. It's easy, fun, gender-friendly and the very
best of it is the cost: only $5!
Here's how you do it:
Go to this link 100 Chocolate Recipes download 100 Delicious Chocolate recipes
for just $4.95. You'll love the outstanding variety & also that diabetics aren't forgotten! Just by
copying the list you can make as many gifts as you want. You can choose to use all the recipes
for each gift or separate them out. (If you like, you can view the entire list before you download.
Just go to the 'Our Recipes' tab).
Using colored paper, paste/tape the recipes then put them in a colored folder or one of those small
albums with plastic inserts. Want to be more crafty? Use yard, ribbon or lace to tie your recipes
together. Finally, make a label for the cover - anything from the recipient's name to a more personal
note or even a photo or pretty card.
This is a perfect gift for family, friends, co-workers, teachers, club members, neighbors, name them!
You may even be surprised at how creative you can be! I did this last year & what a triumph! As it
turned out, I ended up using photos of places around the world for one of my gifts, pictures from
favorite movies for another & Disney characters for another!
Whatever you choose this terrific, useful gift that will remind the receiver of you! From your household
to another it shows love & caring on every page ... and that is always appreciated!
Here's a fun suggestion. If you plan to see the people on your gift-giving list at your home, set a pretty
table using the Christmas Gift Baskets as centerpieces or at each corner. Surround these with some
of the Chocolate recipes you've prepared. It makes a beautiful presention. Now, surprise your guests
by letting them pick their favorite to take home & enjoy THEN present them with your personally
hand-made Holiday Recipe Collection!
Here's another thought that might spark your interest. There are so many needs for fund raisers these
days. These amazing Chocolate recipes can provide a wonderful opportunity that could easily raise
quite a bit of money for schools, organizations, churches, scouting, communities, etc.
