After the hell week that is finals, we all know we’re too exhausted to leave the comfort of our couches. If you’re like me and refuse to leave your home but still want to show your family and friends you care, here are some quick and easy recipes that will save your life.

We all know that a homemade gift is always more meaningful than a store bought one, so give the ones you love edible gifts (that take no time at all, sh).

Now all we have to do is jar up these bad boys, put on a little ribbon and note on them, and send them off to family and friends.
