Homemade Dog Biscuits

This gift is perfect for your dog loving friend. Our dog thought these treats were delish! We were happy they only took two ingredients.

Chicken Tortilla Soup Mix

This soup is yummy and will be loved by your friends. Wrap it up with chicken to make it extra easy.

Pancake Mix

Pancake mix always is a much-loved breakfast staple. Make these cute bags by ironing on the label to a premade bag, or if you sew the label can be printed directly on muslin ironed to freezer paper then printed with your printer. Yes! That is how I made this bag.

Hot Chocolate Gift Basket

Sugar Scrub 

This is something I use every time I take a shower. It makes my body so soft and silky!

Homemade Bath Bombs

Another one of my faves.  I think Epsom salts soak the stress right out of your body. These bath bombs are even more relaxing with the addition of essential oils.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix 

Make it easy for a friend to whip up a batch of delicious cookies anytime! Who doesn’t love fresh warm cookies?

Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate 

Give your friends a taste of summer with this yummy concentrate. Just add sparkling water to make. A splash of spirits makes it extra nice!

I have packaged most of these gift in glass jars found at the Dollar Store and other craft stores. A bit of ribbon and a cute tag makes for an awesome presentation. Choosing a gift that you know will make a loved one’s life a bit easier and sweeter is the perfect personalized gift!
