    Such unique items! The salt collection – from the contents to the packaging – is just lovely.

    I always love homemade gifts, whether as a guest or hostess. I once made a homemade spice mix for a friend of mine who was hosting – we both love world cuisines so I found a recipe for an Ethiopian spice mix – from whole spices which I then toasted, ground, mixed, and packaged. I packed that along with more whole spices and some recipes to recreate the dishes from our nearby Ethiopian restaurant!

    As a hostess, I once received a lovely homemade aromatherapy eye pillow, sewn by a friend – it was filled with rice and seeds and dried lavender. It was such a treat.

    I think it’s nice to think about what the gift recipient would want but probably not purchase or make for herself. Like in my case, I can’t sew to save my life so the homemade aromatherapy eye pillow was much appreciated!
