My mom was always a food gifter. Now that she's a bit older, she's unable to do that. But my holiday memories are flooded with the thought of a busy kitchen with all of her creations laid out all over it...cooling, drying, ready to be packaged for friends and family. And she always made everyone's favorite just for them. There was no mass baking of one item. It was always, "this recipe for Uncle Leonard, these treats for Mrs. Norman, and don't add any raisin item to the plate of cookies for the Smiths since they don't like them." It was a full-service operation of genuine love for others through food. 
My mom has always been a care-giver...and mostly it's been through her love of cooking and baking that she's cared for others. 

Not only did she share her treats, she also shared her knowledge. She would host cake-decorating classes and pie-making 101 sessions for her friends who wanted to learn a bit more about her methods. I'm always in constant amazement of just how incredibly much she did...with four kids and working full-time, too. 

This is a somewhat difficult post to write. As mom approaches her eighties, we're dealing with not only physical health, but also a great deal of dementia and well...you know, issues along those lines. It's difficult to see my once extremely active and busy mom not being able to recall events from day to day or even hour to hour. I miss how we used to be...and in a way, I miss her, even though, she's still very much here. You know what I mean.

I designed these tags with her on my heart. One of her biggest complaints was not being able to find food tags for gifts...because in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, Pinterest and printables weren't exactly a thing. She would always "make do" with a 3x5 card. 

Although, I know she'll probably not be able to use these...they're dedicated to her love of gifting through delicious hand-made food items. Download yours below. They're available in two colors.

Aren't they sweet? They're perfect to attach to a loaf of bread or a big mason jar of cookies.

If you gift through food, I hope these make it a little sweeter this gift-giving season.
I created these in colors that will work from fall through the Christmas season, as well.
