The Most Delicious Holiday Gifts

Alright sugarplums, it's here.  Santa's suiting up and the Rudolph is carb loading for his round the world marathon.  And if you're still thinking you've got that whole wide weekend to finish up your shopping...we're just gonna stop you there. 

Do you really think the mall is going to be a good idea this weekend?  Do you want to just take any glimmer of holiday spirit and crush it?  Like grab it, shake it up, then spike it on the floor so it shatters in a million tiny pieces?

Yeah no.  Us neither.

Soooo, WHY. DON'T. YOU. BAKE?!!!??  What could be more delightfully merry then spending some time in a cozy kitchen whipping up some decadently delicious holiday giftables?! Nothing candy canes, nothing.

And trust us, the recipients will be thrilled.  Because really, how many iTunes gift cards can a girl get?
