I think it's a great idea and if you want someone to test out your creations, I volunteer!

I think it is one of the best ideas I've heard in awhile. I too am struggling with what to get my mom and dad, so I decided to make them each a scarf, give them a homemade cookie of the month coupon (I'll make them their favorite cookies), and a coupon booklet for generalized help (i.e., leaf raking, snow removal -- with son's help, painting, etc.). They have most everything they need and their wants are beyond my means this year (i.e., new leather couch).

What about this - make them a "coupon" for each recipe and put together a "coupon book" that they can redeem once a month for the kind that appeals to them that month. When they "redeem" each coupon, put it on a scrapbook page for that month that maybe includes a photo of your daughter and a little journal entry to tell them what they mean to you. You could maybe tie it in to the bread they choose. So a cranberry nut bread makes you thankful because you know you probably drove them nuts when you did xyz in the 7th grade but they still loved you anyway. Then, at the end of the year, give them the finished scrapbook.

I wish I could "like" this comment! That's the exact same thought I had!

I wish someone would give me this gift! I think it's awesome, and I may steal the idea for my Grandpa. He is very hard to buy for, and wants nothing other than visits from us. I think he'd love some homemade bread from me, and the "Bread of the Month" club idea is so cute!

I think that is a great idea! I also have another idea that your parents may enjoy. Why not get them a grandparents memory journal? Give them each one and they fill them out with stories from their childhood/life and then give them to your DD for her have. Amazon has several to choose from and they are relatively cheap, about 15 bucks! They may enjoy it because it's actually a gift for their granddaughter

This is a very nice idea! Very thoughtful and honestly - more effort and meaning than buying any old item at a store.

Hopefully you can work in a dinner or two (or three) at your parents so they can enjoy the bread with dinner and you and your daughter's company as well!

Fanastic, wonderful and thoughtful idea!

I have to say you have given me inspiration for my inlaws...I may do a collection of dinner recipes delivered once a month. they lost their home in the storm and with no flood insurance..they need to rebuild with 28,000 from FEMA...It isn't going to be an easy year for them, but we too, have had a rough one, so this just may work out!

I thank you for posting this and wish you a very happy healthy holiday season!!!!

Gifts from the heart are the best. I like the way your daughter is getting involved, too!

A Fabulous idea!!! If I were on the receiving end, I'd rather not choose the recipes. I would like to be surprised each month. Plus, if you come across another recipe you may like to try to bake for them you could. You've gotten some great ideas here. Maybe even add some type of poem or letter or history of the bread being made. I just love your idea.

I think you've gotten alot of us to rethink our gift giving too.
