This Thanksgiving Blessing Mix is the perfect hostess or neighbor gift to show how much you appreciate your friends and the season. The free printable and dish towel make the presentation even more special.
I love the convenience of one stop shopping and that Dollar General had everything I needed to create this mix. While the measurements for the Thanksgiving Blessing Mix aren’t exact, here’s what I did for 2 jars:
2 handfuls of pretzels
2 handfuls of Bugles
1/2 a bag of Hershey kisses
3 handfuls of M&Ms
2 handfuls of candy corn
3 handfuls of shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 a bag of raisins
It was hard keeping my family out of the mix so I’m glad I had a bit leftover they could munch on. With the supplies I bought it would be easy to make 4-5 jars. Once you’ve filled the jars you can simply attach the tag.
Or if you want to add another gift, wrap the dish towel around the jar securing it with an elastic band.
Tie a ribbon over the top of the elastic and add the tag.
I made this free printable for you to attach to your Thanksgiving Blessing Mix. Just click on the link below the picture to print it out. You can present it however you like. Another great idea would be to make a whole batch for a large gathering, frame the printable and place it next to the bowl. Or give the mix in little cello bags at a school party.
We’re giving the mix to close friends this year. I love that after they’ve eaten the mix they still have the cute jar and towel to use.
While shopping for the Blessing Mix ingredients I couldn’t help thinking about how busy it gets this time of year, so I picked up a few more things while I was there to use in decorating for the season. Dollar General has a huge selection of Fall and Thanksgiving décor including candles, floral picks, decorating items, craft supplies, and kitchen supplies. I can’t wait to show you what else I bought.
