Edible Christmas gifts are just as perfect to savour at Christmastime as they are to treat friends and family. Here are six tasty edible Christmas gifts to try for yourself and impress your friends and family with this year.

There is a saying that quotes “the way to a man’s heart is through good food”. But at Christmastime, you can warm hearts of all shapes and sizes with a few edible Christmas gifts perfected to share! And with a tonne of delicious edible Christmas gift recipes to select from, our Christmas Cart foodies have made it very easy by gathering up some of our favourite edible Christmas gifts that are guaranteed to make tastebuds dance.

Christmas Wreath Biscuits

Getting the green light of approval for looks and flavour, Christmas wreath biscuits are an ideal edible Christmas gift that, when presented properly, can make cute homemade Christmas decorations too. Just wrap each Christmas wreath biscuit individually in tightly tied cello or cookie-sized sacks and attach a ribbon to hang on the Christmas tree. With most of the ingredients being pantry staples, these biscuits are very simple to make too. Just get your hands on a good fluted cutter and Bob is your uncle (who will also probably love these edible Christmas gifts!).

White Christmas

If you have been dreaming of a white Christmas, make your dreams come true with this deliciously pleasing edible Christmas gift idea. A little bit of white Christmas for you and a little bit for them – perfect! This is a popular edible Christmas gift choice for traditionalists as well. White Christmas looks fab presented in a gift box or wrapped in cello to be placed with other Christmas treats and goodies in a Christmas hamper.

M&M Cookies in a Jar

If you are short on time, or really not that great on baking sweet treats yourself, you can save the extra effort for your gift recipients (or the embarrassment of bad baking) by creating a cookie in a jar mix. Beautifully presented, our M&M cookies in a jar edible Christmas gift looks the part as a festive, homemade gift idea. This also gives your recipient the chance to bake their own cookies at their leisure when they are ready to enjoy them.
