An Easy Food Gift: Homemade Seasoning Mixes

If you need a last minute gift, or an easy food gift to give, homemade seasonings are perfect.

What I love about giving homemade seasonings is that they are useful gifts. Everyone uses things like taco and fajita seasoning.

Not only that homemade seasoning mixes contain everyday pantry type ingredients, which means you can make them without having to spend a lot of money or time.

Some simple homemade seasonings to make are taco seasoning, fajita seasoning, Emeril’s Homemade Baby Bam, and Paula Deen’s Seasoning Salt. You can also do something fun like homemade hot chocolate mix.

You can put them in jars, label them, and place them in a nice basket or container. Or you could use nice decorative jars and make some pretty labels for them. I also like to include the recipe for the seasoning mix and maybe a few other recipes that go along with it. So simple and yet something so useful.

I love homemade gifts.

What homemade gifts are you giving this year?
