A Sweet Little Hostess Gift
I frequently use my home canned preserves, salsa and extracts as hostess gifts. In the age of ready-made everything, I think the homemade touch is often appreciated. Even when very simple, such as jam and salsa.
A few weeks ago I put together a fun little hostess gift and then a week later I did it again. This one includes one jar of strawberry vanilla bean jam and one jar of green tomato jam.
Simply stack them up, place in a fabric wine bag and tie with a ribbon. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
What are some of your favorite hostess gift ideas? I am always looking for new, creative little happies to share. Besides the expected wine and what I have listed above, I also like to give plants (small violet, tomatoes, whatever), honey, maple syrup, and even fancy peanut butters (which can also be homemade). It's all in the wrapping to be honest. A little grosgrain ribbon goes a long way!
