Cookbook Gift Ideas

December 3, 2010

With the holiday season in full swing, it’s always nice to put forth a little effort and give gifts with an added personal touch. For my friend Leslie’s birthday, I thought it would be perfect to give a journal for recording all of her dinner recipes and party menus in one place. I found this 1970’s cookbook at the Skaneateles Antique Center. Personalizing the cover, and adding envelopes and cards from Kate’s Paperie to the blank pages, it not only has traditional American recipes from decades past, but a space for all those personal favorites to be added one meal at a time. You don’t have to be too crafty to put something like this together, just a few skills in the glue and stamping department and you have yourself a standout gift this season.
