I wanted to give my co-workers a little something without spending much money and something that wasn't a baked good (we get so many of those from families and several co-workers are pretty health conscious so the amount of sweets is already a bit overwhelming). I decided on cinnamon sugar-- probably the simplest thing possible to make but a nice treat (and it'll keep for a long time so it can just sit in their cupboard til they want a nice treat in a few months). Basically it's a ratio of about 1 cup of sugar to 1 tablespoon of cinnamon mixed together. I got some cheap spice jars from a $2 shop but decided to fix them up a bit so the scratched, painted silver plastic lids don't show. Fortunately I've been collecting bigger size scraps of fabric from work and I hadn't come up with anything to do with them so I cut a bunch into circles to cover the lids. Simple, easy and nice small gift (and it will come with a small photo card of Wombat in a santa hat). I'm thinking next year I wanna make little bottles of vanilla extract (from this recipe). It takes 6 weeks though so I'd have to get on to it early (I was going to get onto making gifts early this year but that never happened).
