“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
We as people, hold onto to so many things. We want to remember how we felt when we were happy, or with the ones we loved. We will remember what we wore, what we ate, and even what we smelled when we were making memories. I think all of that is why I love this Christmas jar Mulling Spice gift idea so much. Because you are instantly transporting them (or yourself) to a place where they loved the most or had the best memories. It’s all about stirring the senses to relive those moments again.
I mean, seriously what better gift can you give then reliving memories?
My husband calls me a hound dog. Because I can smell a mile away what’s going on or what he’s cooking. But this, is the smells I’m sure that heaven is made of! It all smells so lovely together! This idea is not new to most of you, but what I’ve tried to do is make this really easy to give as gifts. Whether you need a hostess, teacher, Sunday school or co worker gift – this is the perfect gift to assemble & using the free printable makes it even cuter!
Okay – so here’s my secret…I buy this little bag below you can order it online & get the rest of your supplies while you’re grocery shopping!
The trick to this entire homemade gift idea, is to buy Mulling Spieces available from World Market. One bag will work for 3 gifts in a jar ideas. Honestly, I buy 2 bags every holiday season. Just to keep on hand for last minute gifts, and this can be done in minutes once you have the supplies! It’s the easiest thing to make & takes minutes of your time and a trip to the grocery store for a few other supplies.
*Cutie oranges (small enough to fit in your jar) – or dried oranges
*Rosemary twigs or even Fraser Fir twigs
Then you add them all to a jar (in layers) and print out the printable.
And trust me, those tags (from the printable) inside the jar lids are roughly cut with scissors. No punch needed. Just follow the circle around & it will fit perfectly in between the canning lid.
I teamed up once again with my Stephanie Lynn from Designs by Spec to create these labels for you.
If you are ever in need of something customized for a printable, invitations or a resume Stephanie Lynn is your girl! We have done several collaborations together and she is always the same. Gracious and willing to try anything! I promise you will love her.
This printable is for personal use only.
