I say it all the time but the holiday season is my MOST favorite time of the year and I’m excited to share 3 Homemade Seasoning Blends that are great for giving AND receiving.
If you’re local, you’ve spotted these seasonings in this month’s Aimee’s Pretty Palate column: Seasoned Greetings.
There is nothing quite as thoughtful as gifting something handmade/homemade. It says to your recipient, “I thought enough of you to spend time creating something with you in mind”. It also gives you the opportunity to get a little crafty when I think we can all agree that throughout the rest of the year, we tend to toss crafty time aside.
To make things super simple for you if you choose to make any of the homemade seasoning blends I’m sharing today, I’ve created tags you can easily print out and attach to your homemade gifts.
I’ve included the recipes on individual posts, but you’ll find the tags for Pumpkin Pie Spice, Gingerbread Popcorn Seasoning and my personal favorite; the Homemade Cajun Spice for folks who may not always have the luxury of purchasing Tony Chachere’s at every corner.
Use them all, or only use one. It is my holiday gift to you!
You need to download the tags from the link below, then scale the print size to your preference. My jars are pretty small so I reduced the file nearly half.
You’ll find the recipe for Homemade Cajun Seasoning here. Just attach some ribbon and a vintage teaspoon for a super sweet hostess gift.
You have not lived until you’ve flavored your popcorn with Gingerbread Flavoring. Hop over here for that recipe.
And I’ve shared my Pumpkin Pie Spice Latte recipe before, but you can use the tags to whip up some of your own. Toss in a basket with a can of pumpkin puree and a couple of mugs and you guessed it, what a sweet hostess gift or special treat for a favorite neighbor.
And you’re probably wondering where on earth to find multi-sized jars. The Cajun Seasoning jar came from Tuesday Morning, and both small spice containers came from World Market.
Happy Holiday Gift Giving!
