Our family has a tradition of giving gift baskets at Christmas time.
I love this tradition.
Not only because I enjoy receiving the creative gifts from my loved ones, but because it’s so much fun thinking of new, healthy, and frugal gifts for Christmas!
Here are 25 of my favorite gifts to tuck into Christmas baskets:
1 Herbal teas– my favorites are from Bulk Herb Store
2 Homemade Cocoa Mix
3 Homemade Mocha Mix
5 Cinnamon sticks (again, I order these from Bulk Herb Store)
6 Natural lotions (homemade, or “green” brands like Melaleuca)
7 Handmade Soaps (Simply Cleansing soaps are fantastic!)
8 Deodorant Mini’s from Truly’s Natural Products
9 Homemade Pudding Mixes
10 A bag or jar of Homemade Granola
11 A bottle of Homemade Vanilla Extrac
12 Homemade herbal salve
13 A jar or bag of any kind of Cookie Mix
15 Peppermint Sticks (our favorite kind is from Cracker Barrel!)
16 A pretty frame or plaque
17 Homemade Popcorn Balls, wrapped in cellophane
18 A naturally Scented Candle (either homemade or store-bought)
19 A gift card to a favorite store
21 Homemade potpourri from dried flowers or fruit
22 A bag or jar of Homemade Brownie Mix
23 A few pretty washclothes, rolled and nestled with a bottle of air freshner
24 A bag of Sugar Cookie Mix with a cute cookie cutter
25 Pizza Dough Mix with a jar of Homemade Pizza Sauce
I compiled some of my favorite quick mixes, gifts in a jar, and other healthy and frugal gift ideas in these ebooks!
