Christmas Gift Ideas: Food

Christmas is the time of giving and thinking what gift to give is already a challenge especially if the person is not close to us, if the budget is limited or if you think the person has everything.

If I’m having a hard time buying gifts, I always buy food because I know people love to eat. I can make homemade gifts like what I did two years ago but I was busy as a bee this year so I just bought gifts. Sharing with you the gifts that I bought this year that won’t hurt your pocket. A gift that you can give to teachers, classmates, school services or officemates to show your thoughtfulness. 

I saw this M&M box when we went to Subic Duty-Free after our Zoobic Safari trip. I find it so cute so I bought a few pieces. I printed this M&M Christmas poem which I pinned years ago. Click here to download 

“As you hold these candies in your hand and turn them, you will see the M becomes a W, an E and then a 3. 

E is for the East where the star shone so bright 

M is for the manger where the baby Jesus slept at night 
3 is for the wise men bearing gifts, with which they came. 
W is for worship, Hallelujah! Praise His name” 

A pack of kisses and all you have to do is stick a Christmas tag or stickers. 

Can of cookies. I printed a tag “Calories don’t count on Holidays! Guilt-free dessert” Click here for the free printables. 

You can also buy gifts in Marks & Spencer, you can find a gift for as low as P65 with free wrapping pa (paper bag).


May no gift be too small to give, nor too simple to receive, which is wrapped in thoughtfulness and tied with love - LO Baird


  1. Very affordable yung sa Mark and Spencer, plus ang ganda pa ng paper bag nila. :)
