Gift Guide for Students and Twenty-Somethings plus a Giveaway

Friday, November 25, 2016 by

Gift ideas for the college and university students on your Christmas list, and the twenty-somethings just starting out on their own.

Once again, I’m excited to be partnering with Ten Thousand Villages on this post. As always, all ideas and opinions are entirely my own.

Well my friends, it's one month till Christmas.  One month.  till.  Christmas.  Yikes!  Isn't it time to get shopping?  So raise your hand if you love a gift roundup... *raises hand*. I personally love them all.  I find them super helpful, or at least super fun.  And I thought I’d put out one of my own. One for students and twenty-somethings, because that’s who I have on my gift-list. So I consider myself a bit of a pro on that age group.

A basic sugar cookie recipe is a must-have in your baking repertoire. Simple, versatile and keeps well, this is a recipe you'll come back to again and again.

If you’re like me and don’t bake all that often, I’ve found it helpful to have a few standard no-fail baking recipes to reach for over and over again. Recipes like ginger cookies and chocolate cake which suit many occasions, and make you look like a rock-star chef.
