Handmade holiday gifts sound like a good idea until you find yourself in Santa's workshop, covered in glue and glitter, with a jewelry box that looks as if a six year old made it. Here's a gift that won't result in your DIY downfall: homemade granola. Making granola is easy. In less than an hour, with hardly any work, you will have a tasty treat to gift to your lovelies. Bonus: packaging doesn't require a hellish trip to a strip mall to wait in a long line at Michael's. All you need is an old glass jar and the new trendy foodie accessory, baker's twine.
