Pasta Night Family Gift Idea
I love putting together simple homemade gift baskets for gifts. I like that you can personalize them perfectly for your recipient and they are perfect for those times when you need just a little bit more than a single gift item. They also work great for family gifts!
This gift basket is one that I’ve given to friends and neighbors in past years and it has been well received! It’s always nice to take a meal to your friends but a meal like this means they can eat it whenever they are hungry for it and not just on the day you bring it over.
Here’s what I have included in my Pasta Night gift baskets:
- A jar of Pasta Sauce (You could also do home canned, or home canned tomatoes with a packet of Italian Seasoning)
- Package of pasta
- Garlic Gold
- Breadmaker Bread Mix (so they can make their own garlic bread!)
- Pasta spoon or wooden spoon
- Jar of Olives
- Small jar of Olive Oil
- Chocolates or a little dessert (Ooey Gooey Brownie Mix would be a good one to put with this.)
- Parmesan or aged cheese
What else could you put in a Pasta Night gift basket? You could always take it a step further and add a movie or a game, or you could keep it simple with the above items. The last time we gave this as a gift we gave it as a wedding gift and included a nice cutlery set as well.
For the baskets, I like to look for them when I’m at thrift stores or rummage sales. Now and again I pick one or two up if I find some that are cute and sturdy.
