Healthy & Homemade Gift Baskets

This year for Christmas, we gave our family Melicipes Gift Baskets.  

You can create your own gift basket for any occasion, birthdays, hostess gifts, the holidays...

What makes me love this gift idea so much is that most of it is homemade or includes our own personal touches!   

Included in our baskets: 
  • Quinoa & Recipe
  • Quinoa Pasta & Recipe
  • Chia Seeds
  • Homemade Vanilla Extract
  • Homemade Candles
  • Agave 
  • Yogi Tea Relaxation Sampler

Quinoa Pasta & Quinoa Jars with Recipes

If you are interested in putting together your own healthy & homemade gift baskets, here is some information on where to find some of the supplies we used.

I found the baskets on Amazon:
(The baskets in the picture are all large baskets) 

We filled quart & pint sized Ball Jars with quinoa pasta and quinoa.  I printed recipes for both, glued the recipes to holiday colored scrap paper, and tied each to a jar with a bow.
You can find the jars at Walmart ( only has the lid with band jars).

We made the vanilla extract and candles ourselves and will be posting more details on these two projects next.

  8. It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right?

    Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships.

    In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with...

    Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life.

    It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love.
