Celebrate The Holiday With Friends Without Exchanging Gifts
Elaine Magee, MPH, RD posted:
Instead of exchanging gifts with friends--celebrate the season by baking together on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Things are tight in the budget department for a couple of my friends so instead of exchanging gifts, I suggested they come over to my kitchen and we could make a few holiday treats together. We would then divide everything up and they would go home with a nice assortment of goodies to enjoy with friends and family.

That big baking/cooking day was today and it went swimmingly! We each chose one item to make together. I chose my favorite cranberry walnut bread. My two friends chose fudge and thumbprint cookies.

We played holiday music while we went about our baking business.

It really seemed to help start the holiday season for all of us.
