It is lovely to give something to the people in your life who make it special, but it is especially nice to do it without breaking the bank. Here are five easy ways to show the people in your life how much they mean to you. Dress these up with small gift boxes, colorful cellophane or even just a plastic container with a ribbon.
1. Roasted Almonds with Paprika and Orange from The Kitchn: These are fabulous for the people in your life who are gluten free. They’re also a great gift for folks who are not big on cookies or candy.
2. Cookies in a Jar: Well, really, any jar that contains a baked good mix is pretty stellar and SO easy. Just layer ingredients production-line style and you’re set. Wrap a piece of ribbon around them with a card that tells the recipient what to do for a really lovely treat in very little time. Here are some great recipes: Candy Cookies, Cowgirl (or boy) Cookies, Cinnamon Spice Muffins, Sand Art Brownie Mix.
4. Spiced Candied Orange Peel from Savory Simple: What a stunning gift. Maybe it’s not as easy as I promised, but it’s not terribly difficult and is a beautiful way to show you care.
5. Chia Jam: It sounds unconventional, but it’s super easy and delicious and really doesn’t use too much chia, so it won’t break the bank. Our recipe uses blueberries, but you could opt for almost any fruit. It doesn’t last terribly long, so you’ll want to gift it right away.
