Christmas Gifts Homemade Without a lot of Fuss
D Dennison-TSM

When you think homemade gifts, you may think… wow… I’m not crafty or I can’t bake or any number of things, but I’m here to let you know that a homemade gift can be inexpensive and fun without a lot of fuss.

A lot of people I know do jams, jellies, sugar scrubs and more. Some are easier than others, but this idea is probably one of the simplest of all.

Mason Jar Magic

All you need is is a large container of hot chocolate, a jar of mini marshmallows (sold in the hot cocoa isle), crushed peppermints and festive ribbon.

Buy the peppermint candies whole at the dollar store and crush them in a storage bag with a meat mallet or a can of soup, you can also get the ribbon at the dollar store. ( I have even seen hot cocoa at the dollar store, but the large cans at your local grocery store may actually be cheaper. Mason jars can be bought in your grocery store for about ten to twelve dollars for a dozen.

Wash and dry the jars and lids and begin filling. Start with the hot cocoa, then a layer of marshmallows and a layer of crushed peppermints until you fill the jar. Screw the lid on and tie a festive ribbon around the top and there you have it. You have now made 12 homemade gifts for about 2 dollars each. Merry Christmas!
