This year I wanted to put together some simple gifts for co-workers that wouldn’t cost a whole bunch but would still generate some chatter. DIY Easy Giftable Christmas Granola in a Jar was a huge hit because anything in a jar is just completely awesome – especially something healthy. You can pretty much put anything in a jar, attach some ribbon or rustic baker’s twine and a gift tag and you’ve got an instant DIY gift your recipient is sure to love. Here’s how it’s done:
Start with your choice contents. I went with a healthy granola recipe that I created last year and tweaked it to make it more festive. Basically I added pistachios to an existing cranberry granola recipe I mixed up last year, so that it would have red and green coloring for Christmas.
Then choose your jars, twine and gift tags. I went with a red and white striped baker’s twine that I got for $1 at Target just before Christmas. I also snagged up some blank kraft paper card stock gift tags and some Christmas themed rubber stamps. This was so easy to assemble. Let your granola cool, then fill your jars to the brim. After topping them with a lid, tie your twine around the neck below the lid and use the twine to attach your gift tags that you addressed beforehand. Viola! Instant amazing DIY granola in a jar!
This granola is perfect served with ice-cold milk, on top of yogurt or ice-cream, or eaten on its own!
