For those hard-to-buy-for people in your life, an easy homemade gift can be a wonderful surprise. Many of the pre-made store bought herb and spice blends can be expensive and contain additives or anti-caking agents that some may not appreciate. Fortunately, spice mixes are very easy to make at home and you can make many different spice blends using only a few essential herbs that you may actually already have in your home. By making gourmet spice blends, your recipient would appreciate your beautiful DIY homemade gifts. Also, having a quality spice blend at home can make even the most picky of vegetable eaters enjoy their meal.
