If you have not yet figured out what to give, your attention – the most interesting gift ideas for every occasion of life!
15 amazing dishes with only three ingredients – original, satisfying and tasty to the whole family!
Cake with wishes
Who said that the cake should be classic – with biscuit, cream, fruit and fashionable figures today from mastic?
Gift cake can be anything! Even from cardboard “pieces” filled with candies. Or, for example, from the capkake, carefully prepared with their own hands. These tiny cakes are laid out in the form of a cake with tiers, and “tags” with wishes are attached to each paper form. Or good predictions. Or important things that must be done immediately after eating the capkake.
For example, write a letter to a friend with whom he has not spoken for a long time, or to give flowers to a stranger.
Such a cake will be an ideal gift for the holiday, at which friends gather.
A bag of happiness for a real coffeemaker
What to put in such a bag?
First of all, coffee. Natural, fragrant and, preferably, several varieties. And coffee biscuits (or cake) with tiramisu coffee candies.
However, the assortment of coffee sweets is quite wide, and to choose the components of the gift (even for the most capricious coffeemaker) will not work.
Do not forget to pack a “bag of happiness” book with recipes for coffee dishes and coffee topiary.
Surprise your friends with all your heart!
Such edible chocolate cups can be filled with M & M’s sweets – an excellent dessert for sweet tooth for a children’s holiday. However, the adults will not refuse such a surprise.
How to do?
Melt the chocolate, inflate the small balls. Next, dip the bottom of the ball into the vegetable oil (so that after unhindered pull the ball out of the vase) and pour a spoonful of our melted chocolate onto a tray – this chocolate puddle will be the base of the vase. You can pour mass not directly on the tray, but in wide molds, so that the base of the vase is more stable.
Now dipped a piece of ball (we select the height if desired) into the melted chocolate and carefully put it on the prepared base. It is recommended to do everything quickly, so that the chocolate does not have time to freeze in the process of creating vases.
After exposing all the vases, remove the tray in the refrigerator and wait for the hardening of the chocolate, then pierce the balls with a pin and carefully pull it out.
It remains only to fill our vases with sweets, berries or sliced fruit.
A set of sweet spices
A great gift for the mistress, who always smells of fresh pastry in her house. Aromatic, fresh spices for baking in beautifully designed jars will conquer any mistress!
You can add to this set of original kitchen towels, a bunch of vanilla pods and a book with recipes for desserts.
What kind of spice to choose?
The assortment of spices is quite wide, but it is better to choose some of the most “running” options: anise (for pies and rolls), vanilla (for drinks, ice cream, cakes, etc.), cloves (for sweet sauces, compotes, mulled wine, puddings) ginger (for drinks), cinnamon (for liqueurs, coffee, pastries, cereals and puddings), nutmeg (for compotes and jam, bakery, sauces), pomeranian (for biscuits and fruit salads, apple desserts and muffins), and leaves of pandanus (for pies and desserts).
16 ideas for storing spices in the kitchen – but how to store the spices you?
We are looking for a deep original container – a chest, a large jar, a box, etc. We decorate the container in accordance with the holiday, decorate the lid and walls, glue a large label (it is better to draw and print it in advance) with the inscription ” sweet! “(or” Tablets from depression “) – and fill the container with sweets, candies, chocolates and other sweets.
If you have chosen a glass jar for a container, you can paste it with coffee beans according to the principle of coffee topiary.
“Kislinks”, exploding in the language of a sweet-sour taste, are familiar to almost all children today. Only here the store products of this kind often sin by the presence of “chemistry” in the composition.
Safe and no less delicious alternative – homemade caramels for gourmets:
Mix all components in a saucepan with thick walls (sugar – 2 cups, milk – 1 glass, brown sugar – 1 glass, corn syrup – 1 glass, butter – 1 cup and cream for whipping – 1 cup). Cook our mixture for about 15 minutes before boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Then remove from heat and immediately add 1 p / l vanilla.
Pour the ready hot caramel on a greased tray, wait half an hour until the product cools, sprinkle with sea salt and hide in the refrigerator.
Well, then it will only be to cut the product into sweets, pack them in beautiful wrappers, and then in a gift box.
Sweet hearts as a gift to your beloved
Simple and pleasant gift for your soulmates – for lovers’ day, birthday or wedding date.
At the bottom of the heart shape we pour the confectionery backfill, then melt the white chocolate (or milk, if desired) over a slow fire and gently pour it into the mold. Next, send the hearts in the freezer for a couple of hours.
After hardening, we package the sweet present in a beautiful box and write a postcard with wishes.
Many more gift ideas for the beloved – for Valentine’s Day and not only
Snowman from jam and sweets
This gift is most suitable for a winter holiday. We take three beautiful glass jars (preferably, pot-bellied and of different sizes), fill them with a delicious jam of 3 kinds and put them on top of each other, fastening the double-sided adhesive tape with the bottoms with bottoms.
Next, on the top jar draw the eyes and nose of the snowman, on the bottom – pushers, put on a snowman knitted hat and scarf.
For a snowman as a gift to a child, it is better not to use glass jars – we take only plastic ones and fill them with sweets.
A set of sweet liquors
The attitude to mini-versions of bottles with alcohol is different for everyone, but nobody will argue that outwardly such a gift will look presentable and tasty.
Drink, of course, rather female than male, but collectors of alcoholic mini-versions will be happy with such a gift.
It is better to prepare liqueurs yourself and pour on the scales, and then decorate them on the theme of the holiday.
The properties of aromatic pads know everything – aromatherapy does not lose popularity, and every year it becomes more common. Such bags with spices serve for easy aromatization of premises, increase mood and awaken appetite. Perfect gift for any mistress!
It is recommended to make pads with your own hands: the fabric is better to take linen, and decorate according to your imagination. Sacks can be decorated with embroidery, rhinestones, original patterns.
How to fill a sachet?
As a filler, you can use pieces of orange peel or tropical fruits, cloves and vanilla sticks, cinnamon.
Of course, you can just buy a cake or a bag of sweets in the store and, attaching a bow to it, give the gift “for a tick”.But it is much more pleasant for both parties when gifts are made by own hands, from the heart and with imagination. A little more time, a little more effort, but in reward – fireworks of emotions and pleasant memories.
