Paula, a regular Easy and Elegant Life reader, shares her idea for a delightful and delicious Christmas hostess gift:
Fresh Georgia pecans which have been ‘sugared’ and baked, wrapped in cellophane bags, tied with a gold cord, and then sealed with a gold monogram label. I use a family recipe to season and bake the pecans, wrap them up in fresh, clear bags in advance, and keep them on a tray in the kitchen to carry out the door for hostess gifts. Each year I mail three bags to a favorite aunt with three homes–she keeps a bag at each residence for her Christmas and winter entertaining and is thrilled every year to receive them! I easily bake 5-10 pounds of pecans each December. No one seems to tire of them. Serve in a pretty glass dish on the butler tray table, the Christmas Eve buffet table, or pass with the champagne on New Year’s Eve. They keep for weeks in tins.
I look forward to hearing the gift ideas of your many readers.
Merry Christmas, happy holidays, & best wishes for the New Year.
