    Gifts in a Jar

     Christmas is around the corner so we better hurry with the last gifts. I know many of us love to do food baskets and gifts in a jar. For those new to frugality and making things themselves, let's share our favorite gift in a jar ideas.

    You know these have to be my favorite gifts to make ever. I get great joy and thrill in simple layered soup gifts in a jar - dry split peas, beans and legumes + herbs/spices to season. You can add some more color with dehydrated veggies too. Eventually I would like to branch out to homemade aromatherapy bath salts in a jar and herbal tea blends. I would also like to try making some healthy rolled oats/dried fruit and things like warm spices, nuts or seeds, etc. to doctor them up for gifts in a jar. What a delight to have a homemade and specially mixed breakfast in a jar gift to warm up winter mornings!!! Honestly though I am a sucker for a simple split pea soup in a jar mix that can be dumped in a crock pot or on the stove to slow simmer. I really find a nice split pea soup to be healthy, delicious and comforting so it's one gift in a jar I love to give and hopefully share the happiness with whoever gets it.

     I've never made any gifts in a jar, but I love to receive them. Perhaps this year, I'll try some for soup or cookies. I have made food gifts that I either put in bags or boxes and they are always appreciated by busy people who don't have time to make homemade goodies for their families or older people who don't want to make a full recipe of something.

    Has anyone here ever done a gluten-free gift in a jar? Seems like more and more of the people I know are now following gluten-free diets.
