It’s that time of year … gift-giving, baking, family time!
During the holidays, you want to make your friends and family feel special by giving them gifts, but it can get a little crazy sometimes and I know I personally need options that are more personalized without breaking the bank.
Making easy gifts from the kitchen is one of the best ways I know to show friends and family that you love them, plus they are wonderful to receive as well.
From tasty jams, homemade pies, and pickled veg to easy to make herb mixes such as the dried herb bruschetta mix below is ideal to share.
With herb mix recipes, I love to use these Ball® Mini Mason Jars, the perfect size to decant the herb mix into or even to use as kitchen storage for your herbs and spices.
When making your gorgeous foodie gifts, you can either make your own favorite recipe or you can buy a bulk size of a premade herb mix and decant into the Ball® Mini Jars.. Either way, they’ll be happily enjoyed and taste amazing.
I like to create a recipe story for my foodie gifts, such as this easy to make pasta basket. For stocking stuffers or for party gifts, you could fill the Ball® Mini Jars with a dip mix, attach a mini whisk with the instructions, and you have a brilliant little gift to share.
What You’ll Need To Make These Gift Ideas:
- Ball® Mini Jars, small and ideal for gift-giving
- A mix of a few herbs or spices or a premade herb mix Apples
- A bit of twine or ribbon
- For larger gift baskets, I like to use either crates or baskets that are sturdy
- Other supporting gift elements, such as dried pasta, a pasta bowl, breadsticks, or pasta sauce
- Filler for the gift basket, such as shredded paper or tissue
How to Make the Easy Dried Herb Bruschetta Mix:
- Sterilize Ball® Mini Jars, this can be done with hot soapy if using dried herbs or spices. There’s no need to pull out your large canner for these as they are not intended for canning.
- Prepare the ingredients, measure out the dried herbs or spices.
- Simply mix the dried herbs in a bowl, then divide accordingly between the Ball® Mini Jars. Seal with lid.
