Tasteful Christmas Gifts

Tuesdays are for Single Living Skills--helping you adjust to the New Normal with tips and tricks for everything from recipes to car repair. When I found this picture and recipe on the blog of a widow named Polly, I thought it'd be perfect to share with you, too. Wouldn't these make adorable (and inexpensive!) Christmas presents or hostess gifts?
Visit Polly's award-winning blog; she's quite an artist and collector! I thank her for allowing me to re-post her entry today!
She writes: 
I found this WONDERFUL recipe on Homemade Simple's website. The pies are actually baked in glass jars! What a wonderful addition to a Christmas basket gift or just by itself with a homemade tag attached to it and a Christmas bow stuck on the side. This is the link to Homemade Simple's instructions for apple pie in a jar. I do hope you will look at it and maybe try it. There is even a Print or a Save to click, so what could be simpler than that?

The holiday is fast approaching and any great homemade ideas are worthy of our time and attention.

A homemade gift has so much meaning and thoughtfulness behind it and I count them among the most treasured gifts of all, as a part of us goes into something we have put together with our own hands, with our love, thought, intention and time.

Be sweet.

Thanks, Polly!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful idea,maybe even for myself.

  2. I just added your blog site to my blogroll, I pray you would give some thought to doing the same.

  3. Dear Anonymous, How can I add you to my blogroll when I have no idea where your blog is?
