I decided to make my own holiday hostess gifts this year instead of spending on wine or pre-made goodies. I found mini jam jars at Target and stocked up on pistachios, almonds, white chocolate chips and dried cranberries from Trader Joe's, which combine to make a tangy, sweet, and salty treat that can be enjoyed at the party, or weeks later. To add an extra seasonal flair I dressed the jars with a red ribbon and a simple stock card label, which I decorated with a rubber stamp. I made eight for about $50, which comes out to about $6 a piece. Personalized, pretty and not-so-pricey. The perfect holiday treat!

Also have sparkling and red wine on hand for those who prefer to sip something a little lighter. Have friends who don't drink? Serve them sparkling water mixed with blood orange juice and garnish with a lime wedge. To check out the rum pomegranate punch recipe, please read more.
