A Gift for Baking Lovers
Does someone in your life love to bake, or enjoy being in the kitchen? Put together an adorable basket full of fun holiday baking items for less than $25! I found the most perfect (and super cute–love those handles!) kitchen bin by Better Homes & Gardens, then filled it with sugar cookie mix, wooden spoons, Christmas cookie cutters & sprinkles. After tying it all up with an adorable red gingham ribbon, it’s ready to give! You can also tailor what put inside the basket, depending on who you’re giving it to.
Give the gift of Christmas…literally! Three ingredients are all you need to make this aromatic holiday stovetop potpourri. It will make your home smell like Christmas…cinnamon, peppermint, and pine. Perfect for giving to friends, neighbors, teachers, and more. A darling free printable tag is included.
I just love yummy smelling hand and dish soap, and it makes such a fun and festive gift. I created darling gift tags that match Mrs. Meyer’s holiday scents, although you can use them on any soaps or other gift too!
I’m always looking for fun and budget conscious gifts I can give to the people around me, and in my children’s lives. Something simple but adorable, and that shows them that I’m thinking of them that holiday season. I decided to put together a darling mug filled with hot chocolate mix, and tied up with a cute tag, red baker’s twine, and a candy cane.
Cozy Throw Blanket
Who doesn’t love a cozy throw blanket? They’re the best for snuggling up on the couch and also for adding to your holiday decor–which makes them such a great gift. I found this super soft and generously sized blanket in a beautiful cream color, but it also comes in a festive red.
One other thing I love about it is how big it is…this is a full/queen size, which means I can use it on a couch or a bed. And yep, you guessed it…under $25! (They also have a king size which is a little more.) Tie a cute wreath on to the top (it comes folded, with the ribbon), and it’s ready to go in minutes.
Cozy Blanket (lots of colors!)
Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar
This gift gives a personal touch, sharing a cookie recipe, along with a jar full of ingredients. The recipient only needs to add butter and eggs, and has access to fresh baked cookies anytime they feel like it! Great for neighbors, teachers, and coworkers.
