Have a Sweet Holiday Honey Gift
These Have a Sweet Holiday honey gifts are easy to make, so grab a few supplies and let’s get crafting, honey!
For each honey gift, you will need:
- Don Victor honey
- Wooden honey dipper
- Have a Sweet Holiday honeycomb gift tag (instructions below)
I found the wooden honey dippers for just $2 each at a bed/bath store. You can find them online or in kitchen supply stores, too. Honey dippers are the perfect accessory for this gorgeous jar of raw filtered honey. If you can’t find wooden honey dippers, a pretty festive spreader or small spoon would work as well.
For the “Have a Sweet Holiday” honeycomb gift tags, you will need:
- white tag (or make your own with white card stock and a small hole punch)
- honeycomb stencil
- gold gel pen (or any thin point metallic gold pen)
- alphabet stamps
- ink pad
Use the gold pen to trace the honeycomb stencil over the white gift tag. Allow it to dry and then stamp your sweet holiday message with the ink pad and alphabet stamps.
The next step it to attached the wooden honey dipper to the jar. Use a length of twine to tie around the handle of the honey dipper and then tie the honey dipper around the neck of the jar of honey. The honey dipper makes serving honey a little easier – just dip in honey and spin. The honey will stay in the grooves of the honey dipper until you stop spinning it. Once you hold the honey dipper still, the honey will drip off.
One of the really cool things about the Don Victor honey that I picked up at Walmart is the honeycomb that comes in each jar! The honeycomb is edible and can be spread on a hot English muffin and toast or put in your morning oatmeal. It can also be served with your holiday cheese and cracker tray. I can’t wait to try it!
Now, once you have the honey dipper attached, use another length of twine to add the honeycomb stenciled tag.
That’s it! Our Have a Sweet Holiday gift is ready for gifting!! Since honey should be stored at room temperature, you can make up a stash of these simple gifts to keep on hand for last minute gift giving!
You can give this honey gift on its own – each one is under $10! – or add it to a basket with fragrant tea bags, cheese and crackers and a mix for scones or pancakes for a thoughtful (and delicious) holiday gift!
