How to package edible gifts

Now that we made some delicious gourmet food gift ideas, let’s look at a few tips on how to package food gifts.

A carton take-out box can work when you hand over soft food, like the energy bites, in person, but when you plan to send the food gift via mail use a sturdy plastic container or glass jar to prevent the food from being squished. An airtight container also protects baked goods, like muffins or cookies, from drying out.

When packaging liquids, like homemade syrup, be sure to choose a container or bottle that can be closed tightly to avoid leakage or spilling.

And finally, when mailing food gifts use lots of bubble wrap, air pillows, and Styrofoam packaging peanuts to protect your goods from breaking while on route. Crinkled kraft paper or old newspaper are plastic-free options.

Repurposing jars

Pretty packaging doesn’t have to be expensive though. Chances are you already have a gorgeous jar or box in your pantry just waiting to be turned into beautiful food packaging. My family eats lots of jam, and I’m always left with lovely mason jars for fall food gift ideas.

When repurposing old jars, check that the glass and lid are intact and free of mould. Then run the jars through the dishwasher or wash them with soapy water and sterilise them in the 275°F / 125°C hot oven for 10 minutes. Having clean jars is essential for how to package food gifts safely.

Decorate DIY food gifts for fall

If you are anything like me, you come up with cute ways to decorate your to-be-gifted treats. To me, autumn calls for rustic and simple but still beautiful. Think butcher’s twine, burlap, and raffia. Here are a few product ideas that help to turn your food present in a truly unique edible gift.

For an extra thoughtful touch, attach a gift tag or little note, so the recipient knows how much you care about them.

  • printable gift tags – The free printable gift tags from our Prestwood Pumpkin collection are fall-themed and a great way to make your fall gifts extra special.
  • kraft paper gift tags – Kraft paper gift tags are beautiful no matter the season. Their simple rustic look is perfect for autumn gifts.
