DIY: Peppermint Sugar Homemade Gift

I love making homemade gifts for the holidays. Giving a DIY present instead of a store-bought bauble is thoughtful and original. Making this Peppermint Sugar is also a great DIY to do with kids—my daughter loves helping to make these gifts, which allow her to discover the joy of giving. This makes a great party favor or hostess gift.


Once made, pour Peppermint Sugar into mason jars and attach a little note sharing ways to use the sugar at home; it can be used for holiday decorations or can be added to hot chocolate  to give it a minty flair!
