It’s that time of year again! I think this year, more than ever, it is important to me to give donations as gifts. There are a lot of organizations in jeopardy that need help. Here are some not-too-expensive holiday presents that I can send out, in addition to those donations.

- Milk Jar Cookies (above). My favorite cookies can be delivered across the country. These seasonal specials came with flowers for Thanksgiving, as a free gift from the company. Unfortunately, you cannot order this particular combo on their site but you can send some gorgeous flower gift boxes via Gratitude Collaborative’s.
- Figgy Pudding Cookies. If you want to make the cookies yourself, this version is holiday-inspired and not too difficult.
- Gluten-Free Teff Brownies. These brownies are rich and decadent – even if you aren’t gluten-free.
- Low Sugar Pumpkin Bread. Going along with the special-diet theme, this recipe is great for everyone, too.
- Ice Cream Popsicle Molds. Ever eat a popsicle and think, “I wish this was ice cream?” Well, this is how you would accomplish that.
- Whip it Up! Cookbook (above). If you need something to stuff those molds with, look no further than the Popsicle King himself, Billy Green. This is one of my favorite cookbooks to gift, because it’s so fun and accessible.
- Peppermint Snow Tube. Where was this thing when I was a kid?! Even though I won’t be able to use this in Los Angeles, I still kind of want one.
- Fruit and Vegetable Pillows. I was introduced to Jumbo Jibbles when I hung out with their giant corn creation at The Taste LA this year. If your kids won’t eat their veggies, maybe you can get they’ll hug them instead.
