Need some extra budget-friendly gift-giving tips?
- Wrap in a Baggu or a stasher bag for extra functionality and always useful packaging!
- Reuse a glass (cleaned) food jar and put dry ingredients for your fav baked goods (I actually do this as an actual gift for my friends!) very budget-friendly and the recipe is attached to a card on the jar plus what needs to be added!
- Not a baker but love plants? Propagate and gift in small jars with instructions instead of a recipe card.
