Homemade Baileys Holiday Gift Idea

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!! We sure did. We went back to Spokane to visit family and friends and enjoyed a White Christmas (which was so nice since it doesn't really snow here in Portland). 

One of the best things about Christmas is of course all of the holiday goodies, but I especially like giving homemade gifts for the holidays. Last year it was homemade Cranberry Lime Infused Vodka and this year Homemade Baileys! The Baileys was definitely a hit between friends at home and my co-workers and you can be sure this is one recipe that will become a staple around the holidays for me. 

 The best part about this gift is that it is soooo easy to make. Finish it off with some easy holiday decorations from your local craft store and woila! 

I know it's probably too late for a Christmas gift, but New Year's is just around the corner, and if you have a New Year's Party to attend...this would make the PERFECT HOSTESS GIFT!!! (hint hint)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
