Holiday Baking Gifts Under $6



by Linda Castillo

Whether sending a Christmas card, baking some treats, making a special visit or giving a gift, the holidays are a wonderful time to appreciate everyone who is in your life. There are so many people that help my kids from teachers, dance instructors, Daisy Troop leaders, and neighbors to name a few. The list was long but I wanted to give each one of them a gift for the holidays and stick to a budget.

And I did it! I made these cute holiday baking gifts for under $6!


Here is what you need:

  • Cookie Mixes
  • Spatula
  • Cookie cutters
  • Oven mitt
  • Potholder
  • Holiday name badges
  • Ribbon

I found all the pieces to make the holiday baking gift sets at the local dollar store. I selected cute Santa and snowman oven mitts and potholders as well as few that worked for people who may not celebrate Christmas. I purchased a few cookie cutter sets which I only used three cookie cutters for each gift.


I hope everyone who receives these gifts will have fun baking over the holidays with their loved ones.
