It's always more fun to DIY. Every week, we'll spare you a trip to the grocery store and show you how to make small batches of great foods at home.

Today: Gift-giving isn't a competition, but if it were, these 8 homemade treats would blow all of the other gifts out of the water.

You've all heard the expression, "It's the thought that counts." It's probably what you told yourself after a dinner guest brought Franzia as a house gift or your great aunt gave you socks for your birthday...again.

While we do our best to be grateful for every gift that comes our way, we want to give gifts that are more than plain old thoughtful. Instead, we want to give gifts that leave our loved ones in awe of our great culinary prowess. Gift-giving isn't a competition, but if it were, these homemade treats would blow all of the other gifts out of the water.

We recommend that you save yourself phone calls from your friends and family and go ahead and include the recipe along with the present. Save a little something for yourself, too. You deserve a present for (almost) surviving the holiday season.
