Turn Handwritten Recipes Into Thoughtful Gifts With These Fun Etsy Finds
Handwritten family recipes are priceless. There's something special about following your grandmother's own cursive script to prepare one of her signature dishes, especially during the holidays. The cards are usually faded and stained, tucked away in recipe boxes for safe keeping until we need that cookie or casserole recipe. Then, out come the cards for a day of cooking and baking before they are carefully replaced in the box—sometimes with a new spot of butter or dusting of flour.
Preserving these recipes keeps loved ones' memories alive after they've left us and ensures that they can be shared with future generations. Thanks to the creativity and work of many sellers on Etsy, you can now share these beloved recipes in a way that the whole family can enjoy. These handwritten recipe gift ideas will let you share your family's most treasured recipes without worry of damaging the original copy. Transcribe your family's favorite cookie recipe onto a cookie jar, engrave grandma's oxtail soup recipe onto an easel (now you don't have to lean over and squint), or hang up the most oft-used family recipe on a canvas sign so that it's always in sight.
It can be difficult to find the right holiday gift for friends and family, but something as personalized and meaningful as a recipe card is hard to beat—and it's also hard to get wrong. From a tea towel to a coffee mug and more, here are some creative ideas for turning handwritten recipes into gifts that the recipient will treasure for years to come, and it'll even delight that friend or family member who has everything. And, maybe you'll have to order a few things for yourself.
