Gift Idea :: Homemade Coffee Creamer

homemade coffee creamer :: peppermint

The holiday season brings many chilly mornings and even more opportunities to cozy up with a hot cup of coffee. One of my favorite additions to a freshly brewed coffee is a great creamer. What better way to enjoy the season than with a mug full of holiday flavor?

This homemade coffee creamer adds that beloved minty flavor to your favorite morning (or evening) coffee. Make two batches – one for you and one to share with a friend or neighbor. It’s really simple (and inexpensive) to make.

Pour ingredients into a mason jar or other container, tie a ribbon around it and you have a great holiday gift! Create a DIY gift basket by combining the creamer with coffee and box of biscotti.

Check it out!

Teacher Appreciation Day

Teacher Appreciation Day (or week for some schools!) provides the perfect chance to get your kiddo involved in doing something nice for their teachers. With a little thought and some DIY inspiration, you can help them put a gift together that their teacher will love. It’s all about making the teacher feel special and appreciated.

Here are few ideas I’ve pinned on Pinterest. We’re going to do these three, plus one original gift idea we created for our teacher. See it here!

Muffins & Mimosas for Mom

I love mimosas, and so does my mom (actually… every mother probably does, right?) … so I wanted to put a simple gift idea together that would appeal to moms of all ages, styles, and with varying interests. Hence, the Muffins & Mimosas gift box was born.

I love that this gift took me just 15 minutes to put together and consists of entirely store bought items yet it really feels thoughtful (and looks amazing too).

Bring a bunch of fresh flowers and this muffins & mimosas gift box to any special woman in your life, and you are sure to make her smile.

To make:

-Place mini champagne bottles, oranges (for fresh squeezed juice) and bakery fresh muffins in whatever box, basket or crate you have on hand.

Mother's Day free printable tags

Optional: Print Mother’s Day tags and attach to the basket, tie around the neck of the champagne bottle, or glue to toothpick and poke into an orange.  [You can download these free here]

Feel free to mix it up with the content of the gift box too! Think strawberries, bagels, jams, scones — the options are really endless.
