Last Minute Gift Idea: Cinnamon Rolls

Do you need an inexpensive gift without going to the store? We needed approximately twenty four to give to the kid’s teachers. Whew, that’s a lot of teachers between four kids! However, soft homemade cinnamon rolls is always a hit and can’t be passed up when they’re wrapped in a clear cellophane bag tied with a holiday ribbon. We added a little pizazz with Christmas sprinkles.

This recipe is one I’ve adapted from Artisan Bread In Five using a plastic shoe box (no kneading required) and this recipe.

Helpful gift giving tips:

  • Frost your cinnamon rolls after they have cooled slightly.
  • Place individual rolls on a cooling rack.
  • Bag when completely cooled.
  • Deliver with a smile.


What’s your favorite homemade frugal edible gift?
