These days, a gift of homemade food might mean more to the recipient than anything from a store. So think about making up a jar of soup mix.
Giving soup mix as a gift isn’t the same as giving other food: Typically, the receiver will have to add a few other ingredients to actually make the finished product. But you can use that to your advantage and enhance your soup gift by including as many of those ingredients as possible, such as canned tomato sauce, canned beans, a small bag of macaroni, etc.
Stores such as Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Bed, Bath & Beyond are great places to find unique items with which to accessorize your gift, such as a spoon to stir the pot, a spoon rest or an oversize mug. Typically, these stores also carry packages of gourmet crackers and bags of fun-shaped (snowflakes, trees, sports equipment) pasta.
Give a spoonful of comfort to your friends this holiday season, and give them homemade soup as a gift. Check out the following soup mix recipes for your unique and delicious delivery.
