Making and decorating gingerbread houses together as a family is a traditional pastime for many during the holidays. Although in reality, not many eat the whole house, they're something to marvel at when they're done, aren't they?
The downside to hectic schedules, too many extra-curricular activities, and long work days can be that free time is scarce. Maybe there isn’t enough time to build a house of your own, but that doesn’t mean the holiday fun has to stop.
Plenty of gourmet sites like Williams-Sonoma and Sur La Table have gingerbread houses for sale. And while they maybe a little too perfect, without that droopy roof your brother is known for or your dad’s impeccable candy cane walkway, they certainly bring the Christmas cheer.
We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that are for purchase. Whether you're adding one to your own home or sending one to your sister who lives a few hours away, these are fantastic holiday sentiments, not to mention delicious.
