Cookie mix layered in jar with red ribbon

Layer a few colourful ingredients in a wide-mouthed Mason jar, decorate the lid with fabric, ribbon, dried flowers, etc., and tie on a small wooden spoon or cute cookie cutter — and you’ve got a quick and easy gift that’s sure to be appreciated.

Take a little Google around the internet and you’ll find plenty of recipes for cookies, soup mixes, and more.  Better yet, adapt one of your own favourite recipes for a truly personal touch!

Your own custom mixes for easy-to-prepare food treats, prettily packaged in a jar with a few decorative embellishments, make a thoughtful gift for busy single parents or elderly friends who appreciated home-made goodies, as well as a popular item at craft sales and church bazaars.

Don’t forget to label the jar with instructions for how to mix and bake!
