Food gifts don’t need to be complicated, expensive, or commercial. They don’t even have to be baked! Package a variety of homemade spice blends for an easy and economical gift.
I’ve always been of the DIY mind when it came to gifts. Not only does it give you the opportunity of adding a special touch, but it also helps you save money. My favorite gifts to give are those that look beautiful, taste great, and don’t cost a fortune.
Packing up homemade spice blends in a pretty bottle is a perfect way to do it.
Add a recipe card so they know how to use it and make more, and you’re all set.

Once you mix up your seasoning mixes and pour them into small spice jars, you can wrap them with ribbon and attach a recipe card so that they can make more when they run out. Don’t worry about computers and formatting, I’ve got recipe cards for you to print and head off to the kitchen with.
