The Time For Giving

I’m a terrible gift giver.  Too little, too late is often how it goes, as it is something that I’m rushed into or obligated to do.  If it’s the thought that counts, not enough goes into my gifts.  Bah humbug.

Although my economic crisis is fairly manageable and I’ve saved forward, I don’t want to get out of control.  This year, I’m putting my time, energy, and thoughts into making gifts.  When it comes down to it, my new sisterhood of co-workers need presents.  My friends are used to the erratic holiday gifts, maybe even relieved on the occasions when they don’t get them.  Fairly new co-workers are not, and I have to join in on the holiday cheer.

Cookies are the most logical, most yummy option, but I still don’t have an oven.  I’m thinking of an infused vodka, some spicy nuts, and maybe something else sweet that doesn’t require an oven like rice krispie treats, bourbon balls, or peanut brittle.  I want to be able to make everything ahead of time, leaving less than two weeks to shop and make.  The Littlest Kitchen becomes Santa’s Workshop.
