Whole Foods just published a fantastic list of DIY kitchen gifts, with printable tags and recipe cards.

Remember, the basic ingredients can be found at any store!

Great idea!

We did the Thanksgiving taste testing at our Whole Foods last night. It was good, but some of those things are ridiculously pricey. I like the idea of doing Whole Foods level gifts without the price. Thanks!

Thanks meredith!

What timing. Just this morning I began the annual saving of grapefruit peel to make my grandmother's Candied Citrus Peels for Thanksgiving and Christmas... Thinking about frugal Christmas gifts and stories in our family history, missing her.

They are time intensive, and a frugal 'candy' from the old days, but my brother LOVES them so much, nothing pleases him more.

Wonderful link, Meredith, I am planning to have as close to a 'homemade Christmas' as possible, and part of that is a set of Kitchen gift baskets for my sisters. Thanks for the great ideas!

Whole Foods also puts out a nice circular in pdf form, full of recipes with cost per serving and tips about how to substitute lower cost ingredients in foods. Of course, they advertise their 365 Everyday Organic Foods heavily, but the tips and recipes sound yummy. I think they're becoming very self conscious about their stigma that they are an expensive grocery to shop at. I really do like their 365 brand, however. At least here in Manhattan, they're a pretty good deal!

I love reading your blog, btw. Cheers!

This was a great reminder of a gift I wanted to try and create using herbs de provence. Thanks for the post and link.
