Nothing says thoughtful more than a homemade gift. Today I am thrilled to have baking blogger, Elisabeth Farris, from the popular Elisabeth and Butter blog share a beautiful, yet simple homemade granola gift basket that’s perfect to take a new neighbor, a new mama, or just someone who needs a little encouragement!
Hi there! My name is Elisabeth Farris and I run a baking blog called Elisabeth and Butter where I make all things sweet. Baking can be very intimidating to some people so I love making recipes that inspire others to get in the kitchen and try something new without being difficult. I’m all about simple, yet delicious food!
My husband and I recently moved into our new home and I was blown away by all of our sweet friends and neighbors who made us feel so loved and welcomed. I never knew how much a housewarming/hostess gift really meant until I was on the receiving end and I was so overwhelmed with all the kindness! Our friends brought beautiful cheese boards, bottles of wine and champagne, house plants and even monogrammed towels. We were so grateful!
I love bringing homemade gifts whenever I go visit someone or when someone moves into a new home. Homemade granola is usually my go-to because it’s so simple to make and stays fresh for up to 2 weeks. You can add whatever dried fruits or nuts that you have on hand and throw it all together. For this recipe, I added sliced almonds and freeze dried blueberries which go so well together.
I wrapped the granola in a clear cellophane bag and placed it in a simple straw basket with a pretty kitchen towel (more here) and honey stirrer. It makes the perfect gift for any occasion!
