Vegan Food Gifts might just be the most inspiring and prettiest book I’ve seen in a while (since The Princess and the Pea). It has gift ideas for bakers, soup lovers, party people, health conscious ones, and even for dogs; hostess gifts, cookie-, soup- and bake mixes, flavored oils, granola, condiments, preserves, hot sauces and much more.
I’m aware that Christmas and those other end of the year holidays are over, but we always have birthdays, baby showers, bridal parties, anniversaries, oh, and the next big one: Valentine’s Day. In Finland Valentine’s Day is called the Friend’s Day, and I bet your friends would love any of these pretty, homemade gifts. For even more DIY ideas, check out THIS book from Miyoko Schinner.
In this world of meaningless plastics made in China, it is nice to receive and give something homemade and personal. How about starting a new tradition? What would you make for your best friend? Or your mom?
