If you're like me, and so many of you are when it comes to this, you enjoy giving a gift to friends and neighbors this time of year. Well in my never ending attempt to make healthy decisions and keep temptations out of easy reach, I spent a bit of time on Pinterest for alternative ideas to cookies, fudge and pies. I believe that anyone of these choices would be enjoyed by the receiver and they may even be delighted that it's not another box of baked goods.

Once again, I'll be choosing one of these for a DIY gift. I'd love to hear any of your alternative gift ideas.
