Christmas Gifts: The Culmination

I finished my Christmas canning, which meant it was time to think about gift presentation.

I have always been a fan of gift baskets for giving gifts to people you’re not terribly close with. These gift baskets are for the families I sit for, with the addition of wrapped presents for the kids.

The labels came from My Own Labels. They have quite the array of labels for all kids of things, and a whole section of labels specifically sized for canning jars.

I bet you wish you were on my gift list, now, don’t you?

What are you gifting this year? Is it homemade, or store bought? Do you think it’ll be “re-gifted”?
