Easy Holiday Gift Idea: Homemade Beverage Mixes
Are you looking for an easy and affordable holiday gift idea for the holidays? Do you like the idea of giving homemade gifts from your own kitchen, but don’t have the best baking or candy making skills? You don’t have to be a skilled cook – or even have to turn on your oven or stove at all – to make creative homemade beverage gifts that anyone is sure to love.
Homemade Beverage Mix Gifts
When the weather turns cold outside, there’s not much that’s more comforting and refreshing than a steaming, warm beverage. That’s why homemade beverage mixes are such an excellent holiday gift idea. You can use any dry beverage mix recipe that you enjoy. If you don’t have a favorite recipe for a hot beverage mix or if you’d like to try something new, see the Hot Beverage Mixes from Your Kitchen for Holiday Gifts hub for a few ideas.
Simply package the dry ingredients for your favorite hot beverage in creatively decorated jar, holiday tins or other airtight containers and you’ll have lovely, inexpensive gifts to share with your co-workers, colleagues and friends, as will as with your children’s teachers and coaches.
You can decorate the containers with ribbons, paint, ornaments, glitter and any other embellishments of your choice. You may even want to consider decorating reusable food storage containers to use as beverage containers, so the recipient can continue to enjoy using that part of the gift long after the beverage mix is gone.
These types of gifts are quite easy to make, are very inexpensive and are always appreciated. They’re fun to assemble, whether you take care of the task on your own or let kids and other family members get involved creating the beverage mixes and decorating the containers.
Containers filled with homemade beverage mixes are a perfect stand-alone holiday gift for people that you want to remember with a small token during the holiday season, or can be used as stocking stuffers or in larger homemade gift baskets for friends and family members.
What to Do with Extra Beverage Gifts
You can keep some extras on hand to give to surprise holiday visitors or to take to holiday gatherings that you attend as hostess gifts. If there are leftovers, they don’t have to go to waste. You can prepare the extra beverage mix to enjoy while spending time at home relaxing during the rest of the winter. What better way to stay warm during an evening in on your own or with your family and friends?
