Christmas is the most magical time of the year, with fairy lights glistening, carols singing and loved ones gathering. This year, Dana and I took time to put together these jars filled to the brim with good quality cookie ingredients as our family gift for our neighbours, Dana’s music classmates and Daddy’s colleagues.
In a spontaneous moment of creativity, we did two versions of these Cranberry Chocolate DIY Cookie Mix – one in a glass jar (bought from TOTT) and the other in a plastic bauble (from Ikea). After measuring and carefully scooping the ingredients into the jars, we dolled each jar up with a pretty ribbon attached with a small gift tag, and pasted a round customised label on the lids (all DIYed). There’s an extra touch of love in these homemade gifts as they are made with the recipients in mind. It is our prayer that they will have a great time bonding with their loved ones baking these cookies and enjoy a joyous season of love, hope and peace.
