I didn't know you could make pixi sticks. I want to try that!

Thanks for the tea recipe.
I am thinking about a chai tea blend. Here's a link for some tea blends.

bisccotti make an impressive gift as well.
Have you seen those tiny pies cooked in short mason jars? not a very practical gift, but super cute.

My mom always gives us dried bananas, pears, and apples(homemade). as well as dried herbs from her garden.
I also am planning on making these pixi stix

Last year I canned mulled wine jelly and candied jalapenos. I think I am doing the jalapenos again this year.
The year before I did barks....I did crushed peanut butter cups and crumbled pretzels on milk chocolate and a dark chocolate peppermint I think I'll do both again this year.
I had planned to do jars of beer bread last year and never got around to it, I may to those this year as well:
3 cups self rising flour
3 tablespoons sugar

That's it. The recipient adds 12 oz of their favorite beer to the contents in a bowl..mix and bake. So good.

Oohhhhh, beer bread sounds amazing. And that'll be an awsome gift coupled with a 6 pack of some hand crafted micro-brew.....yay I think I found what I'll be getting my dad. I may have to do a couple test runs to see which beer's gonna make the best tasting bread though, oh darn  Wink

Oh lots of great ideas. Fantastic thread! Never heard about the soup mix but it sounds like a great idea. I will try that!

This year I am gonna make lemon curd, some cmokies and homemade ketchup/catsup.

We've also made a couple of different types of BBQ sauce as gifts. One year, we made a sweet Southern, a Carolina yellow and a Texan boilermaker (w/ habaneros!) that went over well. Smiley

I'd like to try to make some different popcorn. I saw some recipes for toffee popcorn and chocolate popcorn. That seems like a neat idea to me.

Last year I did LOTS of baked goodies for Christmas gifts but this year I have less money to spend on ingredients so I'm just giving Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread and homemade apple butter which I did this fall with crab apples.

I am making Candy cane cheesecake and homemade eggnog to take to Christmases though.
