First Time Visiting? Start Here!

A holiday present to start now

I honestly don’t even want to think that it is getting close(ish) to the gifting season, but sticking my head in the sand won’t make it not so.

Hiding my head in Jon Hamm’s arms might just delay it a bit.  I think I should give it a try.  A trial perhaps?  In the name of science, I accept.

If you are interested in gifting homemade gifts this holiday season, the most stupidly easy one you can make is homemade vanilla extract.

Here are the instructions (one of the very first posts I wrote!).

And here is the “after” product, ideas for fun packaging, and the price breakdown.

Take 10 minutes this weekend to start this project, and come December, you’ll be set to jet!

  1. We did this last year and people loved it! Plus it is the best vanilla extract ever!

  2. Thanks for this timely post. I finally have my vanilla beans and vodka so I can get started.

  3. Thanks for the reminder. I bought vanilla beans last year but never did anything with them. Love your blog! I’m in Seattle–it’s nice to read something local.
