If you are looking for some unique thank you gifts or hostess gifts for the holidays, the following ideas might be the perfect way to spice up your gift giving ideas.
I recently had the pleasure of getting to know Rhonda, the creator, and owner of My Symphony Seasonings and we decided to collaborate together on a few posts sharing different recipes and ideas for holiday entertaining and gift giving featuring spice blends and loose tea blends.
It is always hard to think of unique gift ideas to have on hand at the holidays when you want to thank someone for having you over for dinner, or someone who hosts a party you attend, or someone you just want to thank for their service to you and your family.
Every year I am always looking for something new and unique, that isn’t just another thing, something that everyone would like and use, and something that is affordable.
This year I bought a Salt & Pepper Grinder Set that I saw on the Amazon Prime Day Sale because I love using fresh ground pepper and I am a big fan of Himalayan salt. The bonus was that the outside of the box had several seasoning blend recipes to use with these grinders. This is where I got the idea of buying several sets of these salt & pepper grinders, breaking them up and filling them with unique blends to give as gifts. Who wouldn’t love to spice up their everyday cooking at home with fresh ground seasonings?
The North African Spice Blend on the box looks like a good blend that would go with anything.
- 2 tbsp black peppercorns
- 2 tbsp coriander seeds
- 2 tbsp cumin seeds
- 1 tbsp allspice berries
- 1 tsp cardamom seeds
- 1/2 tsp whole cloves
- 4 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
- 2 tbsp (ground) sweet paprika
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
There are a variety of salt and pepper grinders available on Amazon in various sizes and for various prices. See a selection here. When you divide them up and add a spice blend you will have a very unique and affordable gift to give.
If you don’t want to go to all the trouble of ordering these items and putting them together yet you still like the idea of spiced up thank you gifts, My Symphony Seasonings has some great gift ideas you may want to consider.
You can pick out two different seasoning blends and gift them like pictured above for only $15.00.
You can also contact Rhonda at My Symphony Seasonings and she can help you put together special gifts for everyone on your shopping list.
I hope these ideas help you come up with some unique, spiced up gifts to have on hand this holiday season.
