There is something special about handmade gift, carefully thought out and made with love. For the past few years my girlfriends’ and I have been doing a Secret Santa exchanging our handmade creations and it’s always fun seeing what we all come up with.

I also love my homemade Vanilla Bean Agave Marshmallows which are delicious in a cup of hot cocoa or in a s’more!

This doesn’t require much talent at all, but that doesn’t mean it’s not special! Vanilla beans are pretty expensive, but the flavor you get when you use them is worth the added expense.

This is wonderful added to a cup of coffee, or topped on French toast, or even sprinkled over homemade scones; whatever your recipient decides to do with it I’m sure they will feel very special knowing this was handcrafted by you!
