Spice Blends to Give for a Homemade Christmas Gift
If you don’t want to give sweets during the holiday, think about making some Spice Blends to Give for a Homemade Christmas Gift! This post has links for spice blends I’ve made and shared on Kalyn’s Kitchen, plus some ideas from my food blogging friends.
Through the years I’ve settled on a few favorite spice and herb blends that I like to mix up in large batches and give as Christmas gifts. When I manage to plan ahead, I order small glass jars to put the spice mix in, but I’ve also given them in mini zip-top bags with the recipe stapled on. If you’re looking for easy ideas for Spice Blends to Give for a Homemade Christmas Gift, here are a few ideas for homemade gifts from Kalyn’s Kitchen and other blogs.

I love this Rosemary and Garlic Herb Rub that’s delicious on pork, chicken, or salmon.
If you have steak-lovers on your Christmas list, this homemade Montreal Steak Seasoning can make a very popular gift.
One of my favorite spice blends is a Moroccan Spice Mix I discovered in Fine Cooking Magazine. Through the years I’ve used this mix on Crispy Roasted Chickpeas, Roasted Carrots, and Roasted Butternut Squash.
One of the first herb blends I made and shared on the blog was this Rosemary Salt, my own version of a rosemary salt blend I purchased at the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market in San Francisco.
When I want spicy Mexican flavors, I always use Kalyn’s Taco Seasoning.
It’s not that photogenic, but Kalyn’s Herb Blend is another one I’ve given for gifts.
