Very Merry DIY Gifting Ideas + 2 Giveaways!

We’ve been busy testing some new DIY holiday gifting ideas, and have enjoyed reading the ideas from our friend, Kate Payne, of The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking. Kate made raw live vinegar from fruit scraps and is gifting them in our French Square Dairy Jars. What a great way to eliminate food waste and make a unique gift for family and friends! You can win your own case of our French Square Dairy Jars and lids on her blog. (Photo credit- Kate Payne)RealVinegar- Hip Girl

    I put fresh herbs into 16 oz Boston round bottles to make my tonic and cut through a head cold or congestion in a skinny minute. The gift of health is a beautiful thing!

    We use a multitude of Fillmore products. Customers LOVE the handled Mason jars while I love the Anchor Elite tumblers for their classic lines. Now that we carry Bath Salts, we give customers an alternative – bags or Muth Bottles – those are gorgeous for use in gift baskets!!! I am also venturing out into your scents!! I can’t wait to try out the Peach Preserves and your version of Merlot!!
