Personalise the Christmas countdown by creating your own calendar filled with some of your favourite food and accessories. I have selected below five designs you can easily make at home. Each box, bag or pocket is big enough to include larger surprises.
Get creative and tailor each calendar for its recipient. Adults and children alike are bound to be delighted. It does not have to be sophisticated. Just keep it simple and eco friendly by choosing materials that are either recycled or can be recycled or re-used.
To avoid last minute rush, make sure you plan ahead and start making your advent calendar in mid November.
Here are some foodie gift ideas to include:
- Mini spice jars
- Candied fruits
- Mini jams, preserves and marmelades
- Tea bags
- Seed packs
- Recipe ideas
- Cookie cutters
- Home made biscuits
- Miniature spirit bottles
