I’ve said it time and time again, I love giving (and receiving) food gifts. I’m all about the clutter busting in my house, so getting something that is consumable is my favorite. I get to love it, enjoy it, and it doesn’t fill up my house with something that’ll probably end up at the Goodwill next year.
There is something really nice about the impermanence of food gifts—waiting all year for some of my favorite foods to be gifted to me (like the awesome peanut butter marshmallow squares that my mother-in-law makes) is what helps make those foods and this season so special!
With my love of food gifts, you knew I was going to have to include a few in my Handmade Holiday series. I promise I’ll get back to some non-food gifts tomorrow (with a gift for the littlest one on your Christmas list), but today’s Handmade Holiday post is another lovely food gift—and another healthy one at that—Whole Wheat Cranberry Orange Muffin Mix.
If you’re just now tuning into this week of handmade gift ideas, let me catch you up! My dear friend Melissa (from Bless This Mess) and I are throwing one heck of an awesome handmade gifting party this week. We’re showing off 10 simple and thoughtful handmade gift ideas that your loved ones will be super happy to get this year.
So far, I’ve shown you how to make a No Sew Blanket Scarf and Spicy Black Bean Soup in a Jar. Melissa has given us Painted Sharpie Mugs and Simple DIY Beeswax Candles. Today, she’s showing you how to make Homemade Beeswax Lip Balm. Make sure to head over there to check it out. And then come back here so we can talk muffins!
