Make Your Own Food Gifts!

The holidays can be expensive because you’re buying extra food and gifts. You can make some thoughtful gifts that do not cost a lot. Learn how to make your own “gifts in a jar” (or other container) with directions from the NDSU Extension Service. See “Mix It Up – Food Mixes in a Jar” ( with recipes for cornbread mix, oatmeal cookie mix, country chili and friendship soup mix. See “Beverage Mixes in a Jar” at with recipes for spiced tea mix, hot cocoa mix and others.

  • Making these mixes can be a fun activity for youth groups, too!
