cook up a gift!

The most treasured gifts are homemade — and these are not only treasured but scrumptious as well. Package your bounty in cute containers, which may be a ‘recycled’ bottle or jar, a holiday gift bag, a brown or white lunch sack tied with festive ribbon. You can find tins of all sorts at the dollar store, along with holiday plates and bowls to hold your treasures.

You may want to personalize each of these, with tags, a bit of ribbon, a small scrap of fabric. Or, add a tag with the ingredients, in case there are any partakers with food allergies. If your treat is made with fresh herbs tie a sprig to your gift. Oh, so many ideas….
