A jolly good idea

These past few years have caused many to become resourceful with gift ideas. Irritations like fuel hikes, recessions and costs of necessities, have rocketed into unknown space and require us to approach birthdays with an extra creativity. Many blogs are now filled with DIY ideas, one of which is “Gift Jars”.

So whether you are creative or not, the free printable labels, soap recipes and baking kits advised to us can make even the left-brainer among us appear to be brilliantly inventive when it comes to making a gift for their friend. I love making gifts like these…something personal, something unique and creative….something that shows an extra effort and care.

More and more I receive orders for gift jars filled with yummy cookies….for dad, for mom, for the cousin about to have a baby. And even when I’m in doubt of what to gift a friend when it’s nearing month end…I can always bake up a storm and present them with a gift of tasty decorated biscuits.

Over the next few months I’ll be showing you the biscuits that have filled recent jars….bright ones, pastel ones, girly ones….

I love this gift and I love packaging and preparing them…and seeing the look on the face of the lucky recipient.
