Neighbor Christmas Gift: Nuts.
I love to find delicious, festive, and inexpensive gifts for neighbors each Christmas.
This is a delicious kettle-roasted mix of nuts in a cute Mason jar accented with a gold lid, rim, and curling ribbon was a perfect fit for neighbor Christmas gifts.
Gifting nuts during the holidays is a very traditional gift, at least in the Western USA. So, I set out to find a great mix that would be fun for recipients to receive as well as taste delicious.
I read reviews online of good nut mixes and came across the kettle-roasted Hunter’s Mix by Southern Style Nuts.
I read many reviews and the consensus among most of those who had tried it was that it is a delicious mix of nuts, seeds, and spices.
The recurring complaint in the reviews was that there were not enough cashews in this mix.
I thought this would be a very easy fix; all I would need to do was supplement the mix with cashews.
I found the mix and the cashews to cost about the same amount if I bought the Hunter’s Mix at Walmart and the cashews at Sam’s Club.
I mixed a full 30 oz of Hunter’s Mix nuts with about 16 oz or half of the salted cashews from Sam’s Club.
It turned out to be a great addition. This mix tastes great!
I think it would be well-received among neighbors. So I put it in a 4 oz jar. My 4 oz Mason jars only fit about 2.5 oz of nuts which helps keep costs down as well.
I added a gold lid and rim and then I tied some jute twine and gold curling ribbon around the rim of the Mason jar.
It is a festive and pretty-looking jar of nuts and seeds.
Supply List for the Neighbor Christmas Gift: Nuts
Cost Breakdown for the Neighbor Christmas Gift: Nuts
4 oz Mason Jar .10 at thrift stores .38 new bought online bulk at places like Filmore Container or Burch Bottles = .38
Rims and lids regular mouth = Filmore container Burch bottles or I found a lid that is one piece for .27 cents each at webstaurantstore.com.
Curling ribbon gold .01 cent a foot= .01 each
Jute Twine=. 005 nominal, not even .01 each.
Whole cashews with sea salt 33 oz for $12.00 = .36 oz
Kettle Roasted Southern Style Nuts Hunter Mix 30 oz for $9.84= 0.32 oz
Since I used more Hunter Mix than Cashews the total cost per oz of nuts is .33 x2.5 oz is all that will fit in a 4 oz jar.
The total cost for these nut jars = $1.32
If you can find them at a thrift store for about .10 cents it would cost about = $1.12 if you find them at thrift stores or buy them second-hand.
Directions on how to make the Neighbor Christmas Gift: Nuts
Continue reading and/or watch the video on this post to see how to assemble these nut jars
1- Pour 1 whole 30 oz jar of Hunter Mix nuts into a bowl and then pour about 1/2 of the 33 oz jar of cashews on top.
2- Scoop from the bottom of the bowl as you fill the 4 oz Mason jars so that you are getting a good mixture of nuts.
2- Add the lid and rim of the Maon jar.
3- Tie the jute string on and knot it. I trimmed off the excess to keep it looking simplistic.
4- Tie the curling ribbon on and knot it. I trimmed off the excess to keep it looking simplistic.
That’s it they are so easy and quick to assemble and I for one would love to receive it for a Christmas neighbor gift.
