Soup In A Jar

If your friends and family love a good gift they can eat, these soup jars would make the perfect present for the holidays. Depending on the recipe you use, the jars will only be a couple of dollars to make. Simply fill your jar up with the soup recipe and apply your recipe tag to the outside.

Stamped Wooden Utensils

You can never have too many wooden spoons in your kitchen, especially if they are as cute as these! All you need for this cute gift are some wooden spoons, a stamp set, a sharpie, and a pencil. Just stamp the spoons on a flat surface, and color the letters in with a black sharpie marker.


Potpourri is such a great addition to your home, especially if you are looking to add a wonderful smell to the mix. Gifting homemade potpourri is such a fun idea, and it doesn’t take very long to do. Simply combine your spices into a mason jar. Leave an ingredient and instructions tag on your jar and watch your friends fill their home with your potpourri.
