Gifting ideas  

We love to package up the ingredients into a festive gift box or bag, then add ribbon and a printable tag, and deliver to our neighbors.  I love this idea because anyone can use it.  And it avoids the dilemmas of dietary restrictions or wacky taste preferences. 

This holiday stovetop simmer blend is also cost-effective for making in bulk.  Give it to your neighbors, family members, teachers, friends, or anyone on your gift list this year.  It also makes a thoughtful hostess gift.
