Fudge, everyone loves fudge. If your good in the kitchen making your loved ones a tin full of their favorite types of fudge could be the perfect gift. Its not only cheap but shows the receiver that you put effort into making their gift and filled it with love. Also things like home made bread, cake, cookies, and jams and jellies that you made and canned yourself,
