Few things are better than receiving a homemade baked item from a friend or family member who makes it best. If you're the banana bread master of the family, everyone will appreciate your delicious banana bread as a holiday gift. You may know how to whip up several loaves of banana bread, but presenting them to someone as a gift is a different story. Rather than just wrapping the bread in foil or cling film, use decorative material to place the banana bread in for a festive presentation.

Instructions

    Cellophane

  1. 1

    Wrap each loaf of bread tightly with cling film. The open ends of the cling film should meet underneath the loaf so that the top has a smooth, clean look to it.

  2. 2

    Place the banana bread into large colourful cellophane bags.

  3. 3

    Tie a decorative ribbon around the cellophane to close securely. Attach a gift tag as well.

    Parchment Paper

  1. 1

    Wrap the banana bread in cling film as explained in the previous section.

  2. 2

    Wrap brown parchment paper around the bread, taping it at the bottom.

  3. 3

    Tie a ribbon with a large decorative bow around the parchment paper.

Tips and warnings

  • You can decorate the parchment paper or write the recipient's name on the paper in decorative lettering using a black permanent marker.
