Then I pick my containers. I have used the plastic lined paper bags, mason jars, or you could fill zip-loc bags and put them in coffee mugs, with a ribbon and note card.
The vessels you could choose are endless. The dollar store often has the clear glass mugs and if you are frugal unlike me you can find many great deals, after Christmas, on holiday themed containers to use for the following year. I am so bad at planning ahead for this sort of thing…but I have friends who are marvelous at it…..I think I will be like them when I grow up.
