I usually order online to save on shipping, but when I was younger, my mother would make a plate of goodies for friends, family, and neighbors. My grandfather used to send us a cookie tin of homemade fudge he made. My nieces and nephews remember the homemade goody gifts more than the other gifts they received. They made for fond memories. We have also made cookie and soup mixed (dried of course) and put a recipe on the front of mason jars or other cheap jars with a twist lid and put the mix in their. My sisters and aunts and uncle loved this because they could put the soup mix in a pot and just add water.


Why spend lots of money on Christmas gifts when you can make them yourself and add a personal touch? Your recipients will be sure to love these homemade Christmas gifts. Bonus points that they're easy to make!

Who could resist brownies? With this Brownie in a Jar gift, they can have ooey gooey brownies in a flash. Layer 3/4 cups of plain flour, 3/4 cups of cocoa powder, 1 1/2 cups of firmly packed brown sugar, 3/4 cups of chopped walnuts, and 1/2 cup of chocolate chunks in a clean, empty mason jar. Cover the lid with a decorate piece of cloth and tie with a ribbon. Make sure to attach this printable containing the instructions. http://files.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com/gifts-in-a-jar/brownies-in-a-jar-tags.pdf

Know someone with tired, achy feet? Give them a ginger and orange foot scrub. In a clear glass or ceramic bowl, combine 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/3 cup of sweet almond oil, 12 drops of orange essential oil, and 1 teaspoon of ground ginger. Pour into a clear glass bottle and tie with a ribbon and a label.
