I love an edible Christmas gift because it's made from the heart and these flavoured honeys will have your friends thinking sweet thoughts of you! Honey is steeped with herbs for three weeks to give them a wonderful flavour and aroma!

2 - Three Week Christmas Spice Cake

This Christmas cake is another 3 week beauty and it's worth it and the bonus is that it reduces stress closer to Christmas! This spice cake is from Dear Reader Joanne and it is her mum Joan's recipe. It is moist, aromatic Christmas cake with only a little butter (a total of two tablespoons!), eggless and is easy to make and ages well!

3 - Panforte

Panforte is a classic Italian Christmas cake packed with fruit and its flavour develops over a few weeks. It lasts for around a month but you may find yourself cutting wedges of this every day!

4 - Candy Cane Vodka

This crazy pink peppermint vodka is made using vodka steeped with red and white candy canes! And although you can leave this to wait for longer, it will be done in a matter of a few hours ready to gift!

5 - Cherry & Chocolate Fruit Cake

Sometimes people don't like fruit cake and I get that, my family loathe it (I'm the only one that likes it). And sometimes you need to coax them over with this fruit cake made with cherries and chocolate. It will convert the biggest fruit cake hater!

So tell me Dear Reader, are you already starting to plan Christmas? Do you make anything ahead of time?
