Another cute little gift idea: Cookie mix in a jar

Need a thoughtful, easy-to-make, and will-be-appreciated teacher or other thank-you gift?

I babysit two groups of kids a week at our church. One of the moms brought this to me this morning as a thank you for watching her son each week.  It's a cookie mix. I thought that it was such a sweet thing for her to do. And it's pretty, and very appreciated. Cookie mixes in a jar are easy to assemble, and relatively inexpensive, making them ideal for a teacher or other thank-you gift.

This mom took a jar (could be any clean jar with lid), layered brown sugar, white sugar, whole wheat flour (blended with salt and baking soda), then topped with chocolate chips and cake confetti (these are hidden by the fabric cap). She tied a circle of pretty fabric to the top of the jar with a colorful ribbon. The instructions for baking she included, on a separate piece of paper, and tucked in the Thank-you card.  I've also seen the instructions tied onto the jar, or adhered to the jar on a sticky label.

  1. Good idea for a gift. You can make different mixes and give a set in small jars. You can even wrap it in a gift paper.
