The Best Christmas Hostess Gift.

Monday, December 22, 2014

If you're the lucky one who is going over to your parents home or friends for Christmas, the best hostess gift you can give them is breakfast for next morning. Yup, after a whole day of hosting, cooking and cleaning, their dream will be to wake up the next morning and do absolutely nothing. So a serving of banana bread, a fresh pretzel pack, a jar of homemade granola, a fresh smoothie pack or pastry with coffee will totally make their festive-morning-after magical!

My plan is to bake cinnamon rolls and make this coffee concentrate for my mom, but truly if you go with any of the 9 ideas above, you will make someone very happy this Christmas. Happy baking!

1. Basket of fresh fruits, eggs, pastries and flowers for a Christmas morning family feast.
2. Salt, sugar, olive oil and bread packed in a tea towel. Salt for sunny side up eggs, olive oil for grilled bread and sugar to sweeten the morning coffee.
3. Raspberry bread with a jar of homemade custard.
4. Breakfast granola in a box with honey, succulent or other flower and a few bits and bobs.
5. Homemade cinnamon rolls in a tin.
6. Two French baguettes packed in a tea towel topped with a jar of homemade jam.
7. Spiced cinnamon biscuits with a jar of cardamom-pear butter.
8. A few soft pretzels with a side of Dijon mustard.
9. Banana bread and honey butter duo.

P.S: Plus the best gift for people who love food.
P.P.S: Cheers!

oooh, these are beautiful! I would love to get any of these - maybe with a gluten-free version, so I can have some of the delicious baked goodies and I don't just have to watch my family munch on the awesomeness ;-)

Happy Holidays Diana!
