    Great collection of ideas here. I love the mac and cheese jar. It is nice to give a ‘savory’ rather than all the sweets (not that I have anything against sweets, lol).

    Love these ideas! I’ve pinned the Peppermint Stick Cocoa which sounds so yummy and would make a nice little gift! And how cute is the cookies in the jar? A “cookie jar”–hahaha!!!

    These types of things would make nice neighbor gifts as well.

    Thanks so much for sharing these great ideas. I like to give something homemade from the kitchen to coworkers, mail carrier, etc. Now I can add a few new items.

    Great ideas!

    I think I will make a big batch of Puppy Chow instead of the savory Chex Mix and put it in pretty jars.

    I hope to make the Christmas Jam (recipe parked on my recipe blog) this year, too.

    I wasn’t sure what to get the newlyweds (on our tight budget) and when I was at the grocery store yesterday, I passed the really good cheese and had a Eureka moment. I’m going to put together a basket of their favorite food that is portable since they are leaving for New England soon after Christmas. That’s a gift they can use.

    What a delight to spy your collection of great inexpensive Chanukkah and Christmas gifts. Each one is unique and so creative.
    I always love ppopping in and seeing what you’ve been up to.
    Thanks so much for sharing!
