DIY Holiday Herbal Gift Baskets

I love giving unique, handmade items at Christmas. Not only is it more doable for our family's budget, our family members love getting something that was personally made by someone in our family. I used to give homemade breads and jam, but as I've become more interested in and familiar with herbs and herbal preparations, holiday herbal gift baskets have become my new favorite gift to make. I love that I not only get to put my herbal eduction to use, I also get to help my family members learn how beneficial herbs can be! Herbal gift baskets can contain all sort of natural, herbal goodies. Think of all of wonderful teas, salves, spice mixes, body scrubs, extracts and lotions that feature herbs. The choices are really limitless! I like to choose two or three items for the little gift sets that I make for family. I like to stick to basic items that anyone can use and enjoy, but if you are making a basket tailored to an individual person, you might like to choose herbal preparations suited for specific needs. These suggestions should give you lots of ideas to choose from, and might even spark an idea for a unique product that you formulate yourself! Don't forget to check out our Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Ideas post, too. There are probably some great ideas that will work well for Christmas gifts.
