But, like most of you, I am trying to be responsible with my spending. Somehow (aka every single time I set food in the store) Target always gets the best of me and I buy way too much.
One way I am trying to be responsible is to give more homemade gifts. But, let's get real here ... I am not very crafty. But I can handle a wooden spoon and oven with ease!
Last year, I made cookie trays, truffles and cranberry vodka for a few of our friends and family.

Some of the recipes I used for these aforementioned gifts include -
- White Chocolate Toffee Crunch Cookies from The Little Kitchen.
- The Perfect Chewy Sugar Cookie from Catch My Party
- Easy Dark Chocolate Truffles from NaomiCakes
- Cranberry Lime Vodka from Fancy Napkin
