Announcing Home Made Christmas Gifts Event


I have been blogging now for more than a year and till now have not hosted any events here.

So I thought it was about time I did one. It is not a monthly one, it is just for the holiday season.Actually the reason I thought of doing this event was because I got a comment from Shankari of Stream of Consciouness , she commented on one of my post if I was going to do edible christmas gifts this year too like the teas bag I did last year.

And I was saying to myself I would love to blog about the home made christmas gift I am doing and send for a event, but there is no event to send for, so then why not do it myself.

If you want to have ideas , just go and check Zlamushka's spicy kitchen for wonderful ideas from last year. She is the reason why I made the spicy tea mixture last year.
I would like to ask all my fellow food boggers to

Post about their home made gifts, which they lovingly prepare for their loved ones and friends.It can be any thing, few examples are

Masal powders
chuntney's, pickles
cookie mix
cookies
Jams
Any thing edible or which you can used for your cookingAnd it is christmas so why not bottle it up, wrap them up give it a holiday feeling.

1. Your name :
2. Where you live :
3. Your blog’s name and URL
4. The URL of your entry :
5. The name of the gift :
6. A picture 200X200 pixel, it doesn't matter if it is not the exact size, i have noticed I can never have them in the exact size when ever I try to resize them.
7. Email me your entry to mykitchen_treasures(at)yahoo(dot)com

When you write a post, link to this page and to the round up link, so everybody can see them if they want to have ideas for their home made gift.
The event deadline is 20th December.I am not doing a round up.

Don't be SHY to send more than one. You may send as many as possible.

If you like use the logo too.

Instead of round up I will post here, from the time I start getting entries so, everybody who is intrested in giving homemade christmas gifts will get ideas from now itself and they can strat making them too.

That is a great event, but I am very bad at making stuff, except for food of course... So I will just watch and learn ;)

The Blonde Duck said...

Great idea! I was going to make homemade gifts for the grandparents this year!

Amber said...

I had to simplify my Christmas years ago. My family is huge and I work in a supermarket so I am exhausted this time of year. I decorate a ton, but only get gifts for my own children and my parents, and I don't do Christmas cards. This decision keeps me in a much nicer Christmas spirit. But this is a wonderful idea of yours. I will be watching which might inspire me.

sowmya said...

will surely send my entry..

bee said...
