The holiday season wouldn’t be merry without food, family, and friends. When planning your gift-giving this holiday season, it’s hard to go wrong with a gift you can eat. Of course, everyone loves food, and nothing gets people in the mood for the holidays like a tasty treat that reminds them of home. Depending on how much time you want to dedicate, you can give your loved ones a prepared food gift with very little effort, or put in some time to create a gift that’s one-of-a-kind.

Here are some food gift ideas to treat your loved ones this holiday season!

Give the Gift of Cookie Dough

Send your friends and family the gift of bakeable happiness, with ready-to-bake cookie dough! Ship a tub of their favorite classic cookie dough flavor directly to their home, or order a tub (plus one for yourself) and deliver it to them personally. Want to add an extra sprinkle of holiday cheer? Gift them Elliotts of Montana’s limited edition Holidough flavors: Rudolph’s Red Velvet and Frosty’s Salted Caramel. They’ll love how easy the cookie dough is to bake, along with the sweet aroma in their home and warm, gooey cookies straight from their oven. Level up your gifting game by packaging a tub of cookie dough with some holiday cookie cutters and an apron – perfect for a baker-in-training!

Hassle-Free Corporate Holiday Gifts

Want to give a thoughtful corporate gift that’s locally made without the hassle of assembling it yourself? Consider gifting a curated package of snacks and cookies, wrapped and personalized to make it extra special for your recipient. Elliotts of Montana offers three different crowd-pleasing Corporate Holiday Gifts, assembled with baked cookies, trail mix, and a variety of other Montana-made products like Bequet caramels and locally roasted coffee beans. Choose your favorite collection, or mix and match to customize your own. Better yet, you can personalize your gift package by adding a personal note or card, or request to brand your gifts with a company logo. It’s one of the simplest ways to do corporate gifting this season.

Make Your Own Food Gift

If you’re feeling more ambitious and want to create a DIY edible gift, your possibilities are endless. Let Elliotts of Montana do part of the work for you by starting with their ready-to-bake cookie dough. This leaves you more time to add your own festive touch. Bake a fresh batch of cookies to present in your favorite cookie tin, complete with a bow. Bake gingersnap cookies in the shape of gingerbread men, then decorate them to look like your recipients. Or get creative with your cookie dough by baking a cookie cake, or assembling a cookie bouquet. Your loved ones will appreciate the time you took to create something unique.


Give a Delicious, Easy Meal

The holidays are crazy and exhausting. In the aftermath, it’s a blessing to have some easy-to-make meals and snacks on hand. Give the gift of comforting, simple pasta mixes or a box of flapjack mix made with local Montana ingredients. You don’t have to be a chef to make these tasty dishes, and their convenience will gift your friends and family more time to relax. After toiling over laborious holiday meals for the whole family, your loved ones will be thankful for a tasty, hassle-free dish.
