It's that time of year for baking, swapping, and devouring the sweetest treats. Since homemade goodies make the best gifts, make sure that the presentation is perfect. Steal these ideas.

Make over a mason jar with a few festive touches that you can pick up at the local crafts store. Wrap the lid with a favorite fabric and secure with twine and a few mini ornaments.
Package cookies in glassine bags (it's a treat to see a hint of your homemade goodness), which you can have the kids help embellish with stickers. Seal with washi tape.
Cupcake liners aren't just for cupcakes. Case in point: Stack gems together and then wrap up in a cellophane bag. Secure with a ribbon and bell.
Don't forget to save a few for yourself...and that generous guy who will be very hungry on December 24.
