Holiday Gift Ideas, DIYs and Giftaway Winner!

With Thanksgiving and the December holidays right around the corner,

it’s time to start thinking gifts!

Some of the most treasured packages are things made from the heart, that extra meaningful gesture of giving something you have made

Here are some suggestions for hostess gifts, friendship gifts, and something for someone who has everything

 

Homemade scones are a lovely breakfast treat to bring to your host or hostess, whether you are staying overnight, or just for dinner or a party, this is something they can enjoy in the morning or freeze for later

 

Vanilla Scones with Cranberries, Apricots & Pecans

 

Bacon Salt is perfect for any guy!

 

Everything Seasoning is a welcome addition to any kitchen, make up a big batch, put it in  jars,

A sprinkle on buttered toast makes instant garlic bread

Include some recipes printed out on card stock or recipe cards, like

Everything Puff Pastry Sticks {aka Wacky Weeds}

or make a batch of

Everything Cocktail Cookies and include the recipe

 

If you don’t feel like cooking, fashion a theme gift basket like this Gingerbread Man basket, this type of gift is great for a family

 

 

Stores like Target, HomeGoods, World Market, Pier 1, even Walmart or the grocery store, are great places to find a cute container and fill it up with goodies, maybe a decoration or two, a picture frame, cooking utensils, a holiday mug or plate, a baked good from the deli

Snowman Basket

Choose a basket, box or container, shop around the store, filling it up as you go

Add a gift tag and your gift is wrapped and ready!

Even a bright basket of simple fruit makes a most welcome festive gift

Citrus Basket

 

Holiday Jars are fun to make and give too

A few chocolates, tea bags, cocoa mix, a candy cane combine to make a most welcome little treat jar

 

 

Paint a quick little holiday tree on a jar for giving or decorating

 

 

Or just paint a jar white and add a holiday ribbon and fill with goodies

Peppermint Snowballs

 

Coconut Rum Snowball Mix is the perfect hostess or friend gift

 

 

Layer the dry ingredients in a jar and add a tag with the directions for assembly

 

 

Serve the “Snowball” with assorted cookies or fruit slices
