It’s that time of the year again and everyone is trying to come up with unique, meaningful gifts for their friends and family without splurging too much on funds. Try out this interesting little gift that utilizes Organic Root’s Bulk Section, and gives your friends and family a fun experience (and a tasty meal) on you!

These Recipe Gift Jars will work for almost anything, you just have to make sure that you use all of the jarred ingredients at once in the recipe. We’ve included two recipes below, one for Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies (yum!) and one for Vegan Protein Soup.

Make sure to adjust your ingredients to fit the size of your mason jar; if you intend on using the whole batch recipe you’re going to want to pick up a large jar. Once you layer the ingredients, just write out the recipe on the a card and tie it around the jar with some ribbon, and tada! A beautiful unique gift!
