Christmas craziness is turning up as more and more Day-After-Thanksgiving ads are released to the public. While Jason and I shop on this day (see more about this in next Friday's Life and Style post), most of our actual gifts for friends and family are handmade. The most recent comments I've heard regarding handmade gifts is that they take too long or the person wanting to hand make gifts isn't crafty enough.
Well, here's an item that anyone can do! We've all heard of those cheese-of-the-month clubs or bread-of-the-month clubs, right? I'm re-inventing that concept this year for someone on my own holiday gift list with a muffin-of-the-month club! Just make up a simple card to give to the recipient, announcing the item you're gifting each month. Then, make the item each month and hand deliver it to that person. This concept would probably work best for people you normally see on a regular, monthly basis.
Some ideas for items-of-the-month club include:
- Beef jerky
Here are some of the muffin varieties I plan on making and gifting to my relative:
|Banana Nut Muffins|
|Blueberry Cream Cheese Muffins|
