After watching Paula make this on tv we decided to give it a try. The layers are beautiful in the glass jar. I think this would make a nice gift or an easy make ahead appetizer or snack.

Recipe #226320

These are a little on the special side for Christmas because the ingredients might not be something you keep on hand. However, they are beautiful in a jar and delicious out of the oven. Giving this gift will get smiles all around and make you look like Martha Stewart!

I used Coffee Mate vanilla-flavor powdered creamer and Nestle Nesquick, I am not certain if they sell this in the States, if not use similar products, also plain powdered cream can be used in place of vanilla, but the vanilla is better lol! Here's what to do to give as a gift; divide the mixture between two 1-quart glass jars, seal and decorate as desired, attach a tag with 1 cinnamon stick (if desired for stirring) with the following instruction...For hot cocoa, dissolve 1/3-cup mix in 1 cup (or more) boiling water, stir with cinnamon stick and enjoy!

Recipe #191970

This is a great gift idea. Quick and cheap too. They're great on a cookie tray if you choose to make them yourself. For smaller gifts, put half the recipe into two pint jars and on the label adjust the yield to 2 dozen and adjust the tag ingredients to half.

Easy, inexpensive scrub to enjoy at home. From Pioneer Thinking.

My daughters and I make these every year. You can change the look of the crystals by using different color and textures of pipe cleaners (chenille stems). Just choose your color and choose your shape: stars, snowflakes, trees, gingerbread men. The girls especially love using glittery white and silver ones to make 'snowflakes'. We don't just do these at Christmas, either We've used them on our Christmas tree, to hang in our windows, to decorate packages and gift baskets, for grandparents, initials (fun to spell out the kids' names), mobiles, etc. One year we found red and white striped pipe cleaners and made really cute hearts for Valentine's Day to take with a plate of cookies to some shut-in's. They make darling flowers, too. The only limit is your imagination. :o) They are fairly sturdy but the crystals can be knocked off if hit too hard so we spray ours with clear acrylic spray paint/shellac when they're dry (especially the ornaments that we want to use year after year). We haven't tried adding food color to the water yet, but that's on our list of possible variations to see if it works the same. We have also tried reheating and reusing the solution, but with mixed results and you would need to dissolve more Borax in if you do that.

This is a excellent gift for coffee lovers for any occasion or just to use when making your own coffee and don't have any liquid creamers handy.

Recipe #144256

This will leave you smelling and feeling refreshed. Its an exfoliant and a softner at the same time.

Recipe #143429

Get ready for the holidays!! I know a company that sells these for $7 each but I like to include them in holiday baskets. I like to make these for the kids to have cider during the fall and winter holidays as a tradition in our very new household. They are very cute and great as a gift. Tie with a festive ribbon and attached to a bottle of apple juice along with the directions. Also these can be made inexpensively if you purchase your spices from a store selling them in bulk by weight.

These NON-EDIBLE Ornaments where made often when my children where young. These make great bows for gifts that can be kept forever. You can use any cookie cutter shape and make them all year. Great for bridal shower favors or place cards with names attached to pretty ribbon. Have fun and don't for you children would love to help with this one as well. You can speed up the drying in a very low oven. Decorate with glue and glitter, feathers, ribbon, buttons whatever you find that won't attack bugs! No sugar. Make these as gift tags and wright names on them with the glue and glitter. Or use the decorative glues. When fragrance fades use just a drop or two of Essential Oils placed right on the back. Then

Recipe #137024

Give 1 of each rice mixture to one person or individual recipes to different people. Tie a festive ribbon around each jar or baggie and a tag or card with a message that includes THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS: "To cook, combine the rice mixture, 2 cups of cold water and 1 Tbs butter in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and cook over low heat 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Makes 4-6 servings." I got this recipe years ago from a book of "gifts from the kitchen" from the 1970s or 1980s. One recipe each of all 4 mixtures makes 2 gifts yielding 4-6 servings, so the way I came up with total servings is 4 x 2 x (4 to 6) = 32 to 48. (Also good to keep for yourself for when you're in a hurry or to take camping.)

Recipe #110681

This is just wonderful! I found it in the book "Ooh la la Perfect Hair" by Susie Galvez. Enjoy!

Recipe #107291

This makes an excellent gift. Make sure you make some for yourself too though because it really smells wonderful. Please note, you need to use whole cloves. Ground cloves are much stronger and will definitely overwhelm the other scents. If you aren't a fan of cloves, feel free to leave them out entirely. I do sometimes.

Recipe #102950

Served at our wedding. A little pre-wedding snack with cocktails. Cashews are the perfect sweet nut for these pungent seasoning.
