Chai for Christmas

See my awesome chai recipe here! to help fill these jars.
This is an great gift for family, friends, teachers, or anyone that needs a Christmas gift.  I put my dry chai mixture in a baby food jar.   Next step is to glue some Christmas fabric on the lid.  You can embellish it with anything you have.  (You might notice the pictures are tagged with my old blog name The Celery Stock.....they really are mine.  The Feral Turtle sounds more rebel....Don't you think?  Wait!  Don't answer that.) 
 Print the directions on an address label and adhere to the jar. 

The dollar store is an awesome place to find mugs, snacks and Christmas trinkets.  Baskets can also be found at the dollar store, or you can head to the second hand stores and load up on  whatever other deals you find, cuz it's always worth a look.

Fill  your basket with chai, mugs and treats.  I usually line my basket with a Christmas tea towel.    You can wrap the basket in cellophane and ribbon.  This is a wonderful gift and much more economical than buying premade gift baskets, which contain lots of fluff but no heart.
