This one's for all you skeptics out there, who do not believe that something can be home-made (or home-assembled) and compete with store-bought "stuff".
Here is one of my small gifts, comprising of:
- A cute mug (from Michaels- cost: around $3 with coupon and tax)
- A cellophane bag with a silver twisty and filled with my Chai concoction (cost: around $0.50)
- A printed recipe (no real cost)
- Assorted gift-wrap trimmings (cost: around $0.10)
Grand total: $3.60. It did take me a while to get it done - the tea prep, the wrapping, etc..., but I think it looks nicer than a lot of similar things I've seen around the stores. So? Not too bad, eh?
