I make homemade summer sausage, as well as many canned and baked goods to go into food baskets almost every year for the Christmas holiday season. I decided food baskets are among the best holiday gift ideas for a couple of reasons. First, they’re useful, and who doesn’t enjoy delicious food, and secondly, because once they are eaten and enjoyed, they don't continue to take up space.

It's great for the person giving the gift, too, because these inexpensive Christmas gifts of homemade foods are fun and affordable to make.
