Do you and your families exchange a lot of gifts at Christmas? Because we don’t really. We stick to small things amongst the adults and all the attention goes to the kids.
Last year we bought my little baby brother a Lego airplane and he was so excited he could barely say “thank you” before he spread Lego everywhere.
My niece and nephews weren’t so lucky: My sister in law forbid us to buy toys for her kids and so they each got a new bike lock and a nice bicycle bell.
But this year? This year we’re the heroes because we’re the only ones allowed to give them toys.
I’m probably more excited about this than the kids are.
My sister in law gave me a cute candle holder and a jar full of an amazing apple cider spice mix last year. I loved it so much I hardly dared to use any of it because I was scared I’d run out of it too quickly.
But of course it eventually happened and I had to recreate it in my kitchen. It makes for such a great gift that I thought I’d share it with you, along with a nice printable you can use for giving away this spice mix!
This recipe makes enough to fill five 8-ounce jars. I used jam jars from Ball Jars.
It’s really easy to put together with just four ingredients, one bowl and a spoon to give it a good stir. Because it’s so simple to make it’s perfect as a last-minute gift or to make with young children.
The spice mix itself tastes amazing when added to hot apple cider or red wine!
You can get your free printable here – I printed it 9 times onto a sheet of paper and it fit perfectly on the jam jars!
Add a nice spoon and a bottle of red wine or apple juice from the farmer’s market and you’ve got yourself a lovely gift to give away this Christmas!
