1. Christmas Morning Pancake Mix

WHO: The entire family

WHAT: Whisk, dish towel, pancake mix, and syrup

NOTES: Sometimes we like to do a gingerbread pancake mix with ginger syrup! I like to put the directions for the pancakes on the back of the gift tag.

2. Merry Christmas & Buon Appetito!

WHO: The home cook

WHAT: Dish towel, spaghetti, sauce, and olive oil

NOTES: Instead of a basket try putting it in a colander! If you’re local to Utah, we absolutely love Harmons private label products, they’re fantastic. They have lots of different items to choose from.

3. May Your Days be Merry and Bright

4. Popping By to Say Merry Christmas

WHO: The entire family, newlyweds, or new parents

WHAT: Popcorn containers, microwave popcorn, candy, Redbox gift card

NOTES: This is such a fun gift to customize. I grabbed a few fresh packs of movie theater type candy, put them in bags and arranged them around the other items in the container.

5. Merry Christmas and to all a Movie Night

WHO: Anyone!

WHAT: Pretzels, popcorn and a Fandango gift card

NOTES: We’re kind of obsessed with yogurt pretzels and Angie’s Holidrizzle White Peppermint Popcorn. So when we have the opportunity to share the goodness with others, we do!

6. Warmest Wishes

WHO: Anyone!

WHAT: Homemade hot cocoa mix, chopped peppermint bark, mini marshmallows, festive straws

NOTES: I like to add a peppermint twist to my regular cocoa mix. Crushed candy canes or peppermint bark make a great addition. I buy my cocoa in bulk to save some $$.

7. Eat, Drink & Be Merry!

WHO: Anyone!

WHAT: Chocolate nut mix or homemade candied nuts

NOTES: If you don’t have time to make homemade candied nuts (P.S. I made a version based off of this recipe), opt for a chocolate covered mix- everyone loves chocolate! ????
