Are you looking for an awesome gift idea for someone who loves gourmet food? Your friends and family will just love these festive reindeer honey jar gifts!
Recently when I was in Walmart, I saw some gorgeous looking Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jars in the Hispanic aisle. I loved the cute globe shape of the jars and thought they would be ideal gifts for my Supper Club friends. We all buy each other a gift at the end of the year and they can be difficult to buy for – we keep the costs to under $15 – but I still want to buy something that is great quality and my fellow Supper Clubbers will appreciate!
I suppose I should mention that I might *just* have also bought a jar for myself as well as for gifts. This raw, unfiltered Don Victor® Honey isn’t heated or processed in any way. But what intrigued me most was the honeycomb pieces inside – which most definitely can be eaten! The honeycomb doesn’t melt, but if you put it onto toast or a hot muffin you can lightly spread it. It tastes really great with cheese, or even French toast or pancakes!
So here’s how I made these Don Victor® Honey jars a little more festive! I used the following (which were all purchased from Walmart):
- Brown craft foam (cut into antler shapes)
- Red pom pom noses
- Googly eyes (of course!!)
I used a hot glue gun to attach the pieces to the jar. It was so easy!
Then at the last minute I decided that the jars needed jingly gift tags, so I added:
- Gift tags and twine
- Jingle bells
After writing out the tags I attached them to the jar, and my cute gifts were ready!
By the way, here are a few tips for storing the honey:
- Don’t store it in the fridge – keep it on the counter or in the pantry at room temperature
- If the honey crystallizes*, just place the jar in warm water, and stir until the crystals dissolve
*Crystallization is not an indicator of spoilage, impurity, age or quality, but is the natural process of glucose sugar molecules aligning into orderly arrangements (known as crystals)
