Gift Idea: Homemade Jars of Goodies

If you are looking for a way to save money while gift giving but you also want to make the gift heartfelt, making presents is the best solution. I know when I used to think of “homemade gifts” I envisioned popsicle stick cabins and macaroni frames. Laaaaaame. But then I discovered the joys of dry mix foods in jars! With a little work you can give the gift of deliciousness!

The basic idea of all jars of dry mixes is layering. The layers give a great visual so your gift really doesn’t even need wrapped!

I did this last year for my family. I made a big batch of cookie mix for my family members. I know my sisters were excited and made theirs immediately. So I am recommending something I can promise gets results!

I have gathered a few links for you to browse. The hot cocoa ones are my favorite. So cruise those links and maybe give the gift of yummy treats for the holidays this year!
