Homemade Gifts from the Heart

The giving season has begun, and it’s time to start thinking about what goodies you will be gifting to your family and friends. If you don’t have time to shop in-store and want something a little more thoughtful and heartfelt than clicking “order” online, we want you to take matters into your own hands!  

Regardless of if your friends and family live near or far, the gifts below can be wrapped up and sent anywhere around the world. Simply pack up a box with loving care and you’ll know that the recipients will be smiling from ear to ear as they discover the surprises inside.  

Check out the following suggestions for a care package that revives the dying art of homemade gifts from the heart. 


Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix gives the gift of a warm mug of comfort, with a Mexican twist. Our Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Powder brings a rich and mellow flavor to the mix that is emphasized when combined with the chocolate and cinnamon flavors.

Chocolate Coffee Biscotti are just the right accompaniment to that mug of Mexican Hot Chocolate! The flavorful cookies feature Madagascar Pure Vanilla Bean Paste, giving them bold vanilla bean flavor without worrying about dealing with whole vanilla beans. Pure Coffee Extract brings out the mocha flavor to pair perfectly with the chocolate and Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar adds a fun, sugary crunch to the top of every cookie!

Finally, bring a little luxury into your loved one’s life with homemade Vanilla Body Scrub. It’s easily made at home in a few simple steps. The Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar gives the scrub a great exfoliating texture AND a gorgeous vanilla scent that sings indulgence.
