If you have ever wanted to come up with a gift for the cooks in your family, a recent college grad, or a bride-to-be, then how about a cookbook?
All you need to do is email (or in the case of Grandma, visit!) and get some of everyone's favorite recipes. Be sure to include any traditional comfort foods that you grew up eating, or anything of religious or cultural significance to your family.
Once you have all of this gathered up, decide on how you will organize it. By person? By season? Food type? It's really up to you! For that matter, you could make an entire dessert cookbook, Christmas cookbook etc. if you wanted! Be creative!
Now, for "presentation." This depends on what skills you have! If you are a scrapbooker, you might want to go all out and hand make it. But what if you want several copies? You could always type it up and add clip art or family photos. Or you can follow the link below and use The Family Cookbook Project (they will do the work for you!)
So take the idea and run with it, make it your own, and surprise someone (or several people) with a very special gift!
