Whenever someone sees my terrariums they ask how I made them. While they aren’t that hard to make they do require supplies and let’s be honest, most people don’t want to go hunting for the supplies.

You can save them a lot of time but putting all of the supplies they need in a jar and leave the creation of the terrarium up to them.

This might be my favorite gift on the list.

5. Chocolate Chip & Oatmeal Quick Bread Mix Jar

Quick bread is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a quick way to make bread and this jar is awesome in the fact that it provides you with all of the ingredients that you need.

Some people might not even bother making the quick bread due to the fact that the ingredients look so beautiful put together in a jar.

Makes me want to go out and find other items like this.

6. Hot Chocolate Mix in a Jar

Well look it here! I found one already.

This is similar to the quick bread jar above but this one is for hot chocolate. Now that I think about it, it would be great to give both of these gifts to someone.

They can make the bread and the hot chocolate and sit by the fireplace thinking about how wonderful of a person you are for creating such awesome gifts.

People are going to get suspicious and think that all you want them to do is cook for you when you give them another ingredient mixer.

While this one isn’t as stunning as the ingredient jars above, it doesn’t mean it’s less awesome.

People love muffins but never think about making them. With this gift, they have no excuses!
