How To Wrap Food Gifts
One of the best parts of making food gifts for the holidays is all about how to wrap the food gifts. The presentation is everything.
Mason jars are easy enough to use to wrap food gifts. You can decorate the jars with paint, labels, and ribbons.
You can buy cellophane holiday bags to tuck into a holiday gift basket.
Or depending on the gift you could use a container that the recipient can use in their kitchen once the holiday food gift is gone.
