Six Homemade Pantry Gifts to Show How Much You Care


No Comments

Maybe it’s the turn of seasons in the air because multiple life changes occurred among my trusty troupe of friends in just a few weeks: the newly-minted grandmother; the very-soon-to-be mother; first-time homeowners; and the recently engaged, graduated, or hired. I am suddenly in need of gifts to give in celebration of these momentous occasions.

But I know gifts have another important role in the midst of transitions: meeting friends in moments of stress. Pantry gifts are especially suited for the job, saving friends a trip to the store and sneaking in some homemade love whenever they sit down for a meal. If you have loved ones moving from one season to the next, knock on their door with one of these heartening gifts in hand. They will know upon sight they have a friend, you, rooting for them through anything.
