Teacher gifts are a tricky thing. . .
You want the gift to be personal. You want it to stand out from the crowd of coffee mugs and gift cards. You want it to be genuinely appreciated and liked. So, now what?
We have the answer for a personal, no baking required, quick and easy, yet thoughtful gift.
Choose your favorite Dessert Skirtz, and buy one jar for each gift basket you’ll need. We’re using non-holiday looks in ours so they can be enjoyed after the holidays.
Purchase medium sized, decorative baskets or attractive mixing bowls along with a tea towel that coordinates with the Dessert Skirtz look you have chosen.
Next, you’ll make homemade muffin mix. Don’t worry! The ingredients and instructions are below…no baking required!! It’ll take you minutes to make all your gifts.
If you want to be more elaborate, include an apron that coordinates or a large wooden spoon.
Now, just place the muffin mix, Dessert Skirtz, tea towel and apron or large wooden spoon in the bowl.
Download and print the free 4x6 recipe card we’ve made for you to tuck into the basket or bowl (if you print on photo paper, there is no cutting required).
Leave the baking to the recipient…They’ll be thrilled to get such a sweet gift that they can use on a cozy morning in January, long after the holiday sugar high has worn off!
