Today I’m excited to show you ideas OTHERS have come up with!! I love all of these great gift ideas!! If you missed part one of this series you’ll find it here.
Donna posted here about making Simmering Jars. I bet these smell great! What a fun gift idea! I love that you can reuse the contents of this jar over and over!
Each jar contains approximately:
1/2 a lemon, cut in slices
1/2 a lime, cut in slices
1/2 an orange, cut in slices
1 t whole cloves
2 or 3 cinnamon sticks (you may need to break them for smaller jars)
1 or 2 sprigs of rosemary (or other of choice or home-grown! …or to keep it more frugal, sprinkle in some dry herbs)
Then cover with water and if you like, make a label with instructions to simmer, add more water, and return to jar and refrigerate until next use! The amounts could vary based on jar size.
My friend Summer has a new blog and she’s got several really cool gift ideas!
These velvet belts Summer is making are super cute.
And THESE SUEDE PILLOWS? Summer, no pressure or anything…but those would look great in my living room in say…earth tones. I think they are SO cool. You know where I live. Just drop one off anytime and put it under my tree. :) (Right now Summer is rolling her eyes at me and saying, “Make your OWN pillow, girl!”)
In case you’ve been curious, here are some of the simple gifts the boys and I have been making for cousins and grandparents. (If your name happens to be Aunt Kari or Grandma Coppinger…you are NOT allowed to click here to see these gifts!! Not even a peek.) :)
I’ll continue to share more ideas in this Inexpensive Gifts to Make and Give Series. Here’s what’s in the works right now…
