We all have those groups we like to give gifts to that we don't have to spend a fortune on. Office coworkers, neighbors, the mailman, teachers, or just little things to have on hand IN CASE!
We all know the common denominator with all humans is eating!!!! We need to - we like to - we want to....
I am a huge contributor of food to many. Whether it is the goodie basket/bags or just fixing sweets and goodies on a plate. I like to make jar recipes as well. Most any baking recipe can be turned into a jar or baggie recipe. Place all dry ingredients in jar or bag - give instructions on what wet ingredients recipient will need and how to bake. Easy peasy!!
You can get foil pans at the dollar store or you can use thrifted plates for cookies, etc. The recipient can keep it. Wrap a bread in plastic wrap - then wrap a dish towel around it with a ribbon. Many neat ways to present.
A bag of soup mix and a ladle, pancake mix and a turner, get creative and come up with your own ideas.
For a couple dollars you have a useful gift.
How about a mug and some flavored tea bags or hot chocolate mix? A mug, warm footies and a small tube of lotion or lip balm. A pretty candle holder and some votives (dollar store). A homemade cheeseball and a box of crackers. Small box of Velveeta & can of chili (to make easy dip) and pretzels or chips. Hand warmers for the mailman (dollar store). No end to the ideas.
Gifts don't have to be complicated nor do they have to cost a lot. There are so many fun ideas that can be given.
More will be coming up in the coming days.
Look around your home and get that thinking cap on - have fun with this. Isn't that what it should be all about?
