Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great new years eve.
With Christmas over I’m finally able to share what I made for presents
this last year. I always give homemade christmas presents to my grandmother and my mom and dad. It is kind of a tradition. This year I also made presents for 4 of my friends. Three of these presents were a surplice and I had a lot of fun sneaking the presents into their bags and homes without them noticing.
I hope these gifts can give you some inspiration for future presents.
Harry Potter mix
Ok, this gift is very nerdy, I know. But that is ok since we are talking Harry Potter, isn’t it? Haha. Two of my great friends love the Harry Potter stories as much as I do and I had been wanting to make something Harry Potter-like for a some time (just because I’m a huge fan and nerd), so I thought why not give them a Harry Potter inspired gift.
I made three small gifts:
Ballet shoe cookies
My good friend Marie loves ballet as I do. I just wanted to give her a little thing and then I remembered this picture I once saw on Pinterest of some incredibly cute cookies. Inspired by this post.
Homemade herbed salts and sugars
For my grandmother who loves cooking (I think I’ve gotten the love for cooking from her). I made tree small jars of salt and sugar
Easy peasy gift.
Hot chocolate on a stick
This one was tricky; I was to make a gift for my friend, that didn’t cost anything. I ended up giving her 8 of these sticks and a tea cup (which I already had on hand) which I wrote on with a sharpie and then burned in the oven. A good and cheap gift idea.
Did you make your own presents? And what did you make?
Looking forward to tomorrow where I have a recipe on healthy truffles to share.
