Secret Pal Gift Idea: Home-Baked Bread

Doesn’t everyone love a fresh loaf of home-baked bread? There are lots of ways to make this easy on yourself though. It doesn’t have to be an all-day chore.

Just go down to the grocery store and buy a loaf of frozen bread. Follow the directions on the package, and voila! You have baked bread for your secret pal.

But if you feel like being fancy, try making a bread braid, and glaze it with egg. Or buy the frozen cinnamon rolls and bake those instead. (My mouth is watering as I type this…Mmmm!) Who could resist it?

To make it really special, you might consider getting up early to bake it right before going to work. Or, if you’re not much of an early riser, bake it the night before and just stick a toothpick in it with a fun cartoon character taped on top. If you know that your secret pal loves Spiderman Comics, print an image of Spiderman on your computer printer, cut it out, and tape it to a toothpick, then stick that into the cinnamon roll or bread loaf.

Everyone else at your office will be envious of your secret pal!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, you could even put a Thanksgiving graphic on your bread. Glue an image of a turkey to the outside of your bread sack with a computer-generated message that says “Happy Thanksgiving”.

A cautionary note though: some people have food allergies. Make sure you know whether or not your secret pal has dietary issues. Even diabetics have to be careful not to ingest too much white bread. So ask around. Make sure your secret pal can eat your treat, after all your hard work.
