These 20 Last Minute DIY Edible Holiday Gifts are easy to make in an afternoon and make perfect Christmas gifts to give to all of your foodie friends.

Christmas is officially less than a week away. Who’s been a slacker like me, and put off things ’til the last minute? This weekend, I was scouring the web for new, fun and creative ideas for DIY edible holiday gifts. Typically, I make vanilla extract and treat my friends each to a bottle for Christmas. It’s always been a big hit, and it’s simple to make, but it takes at least a month for the extraction process to complete.

This year I was in desperate need of ideas for quick and easy gifts. I’m not wanting to do a lot of baking, but I want to give gifts that are appreciated and cute too! The 20 edible gift ideas below are all on my radar… They can be made in an afternoon, the day before Christmas. Which would you choose?
