To help make it easier for its community to find gift ideas that are easy and affordable, Allrecipes.com and its team of editors culled through thousands of food gift recipes and curated a collection of the top 20 homemade Christmas food gift ideas, including recipes for doggie biscuits and herb salt.

"We're excited to share these top-rated homemade gift ideas, which empower home cooks to create meaningful presents that are as fun to make as they are to share."Topping Allrecipes' most popular homemade gifts this year are cookies and bars, which fit nicely in a pretty mug with a personalized tag attached. Depending upon age, kids might measure, mix and shape the dough, or simply decorate the cookies parents have prepared, adding their personal touch.
