Every year when I was younger my amazing (or insane, depending on how you look at it) mother spent the month of December turning our kitchen into a gingerbread factory. She made gingerbread house kits for everyone – family, friends, babysitters, you name it! It’s a great gift for anyone on your list, because you’ll be giving them all the fun of decorating a house without any of the mess or fuss of baking it themselves.
