Last-Minute Gift Ideas for the Real Foodie

I heard once of a couple who started saving for Christmas gift-giving in January. They would set aside a little bit each month and do their shopping throughout the year. As much as I would one day love to plan this far in advance, these days I am lucky if I start thinking about Christmas shopping at the beginning of December.

For those of you, like me, who are more of a “last-minute gift giver” here are a few ideas for homemade gifts that are simple, frugal and most important, fast. Any of these ideas would make a wonderful gift at any time of the year for the real foodie or anyone else in your life.
