In this time of the year we use to consume and spend much more because we imagine in our head that "we have a free pass for it" as it is Christmas. Sometimes even we caught ourselves thinking why did i eat so much...? why did i buy this...? or we feel the need that we have to jump into the streets and go shopping. With all the crazy stuff that are going on now a days, i thought that maybe this year we could make some presents to give away instead of buying random things... Who doesn't love tea? You can make your favourite blends adding spices as cardamom pods, vanilla bean, saffron, cloves, dried lemon or orange peal... Pack the tea blends in glass jars, decorate them with leaves, flowers, or a personal note... It is just an example of all the things you can make: granola jars, chocolate bars, hazelnut nutella, savoury seed & nuts toppings, chocolate truffles... and the list go on. Crafty gifts made with lots of love!
