Re: Homemade Christmas gifts?

for my aunt and uncle i just bake them cookies and bread. I also make gifts in a jar (like various mix starters and then attach a card that has directions and other ingredients that are needed on it)

Re: Homemade Christmas gifts?

gifts in a jar are wonderful things, lol. I made up a ton last year for family when we were WAY broke. I also did some handmade ornaments for each one. You'd be amazed at what you can do with a few fabric scraps, lol.

I usually make assorted cookies, but I think this year I'm going to try my hand at nuts and candies. I'm thinking peanut brittle, toffee, and those glazed spice almond/pecans you can find at fairs. Packaged in a pretty tin or jar and I think they'll go over well.

I like making Homemade cookies and breads. The mix's in a jar are fun too. This year I'm making fleece blankets for my DH side of the family.

Re: Homemade Christmas gifts?

I make a cocoa & cookies warm and snuggly basket
This all goes into a medium size basket:

I make Christmas themed sugar cookies and frost them. I put them in a Christmas tin. (santas, candy canes, trees ect.)

Two large cocoa mugs. (the dollar store has some great looking mugs btw )

4 packages of hot cocoa

and a rolled up fleece blanket with the same colors in the mugs. (I have found them for as little as 4.99!!!)

I put tissue paper in the bottom to match the colors of the blanket and mugs
and shrink wrap the whole thing.

Everyone seems to like it.

Re: Homemade Christmas gifts?

I have a couple of neat books full of gift in a jar ideas...
Gifts in a Jar: Holiday Fun
Gifts in a Jar: Cocoas, Cappuccinos, Coffees & Teas

Here's one of the recipes:
Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Mix

1 3/4 c. powdered instant dry milk
1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. powdered coffee creamer
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 c. mini marshmallows

Mix all the above together until well blended and place in a wide-mouth 1 qt. canning jar.
