Dare to Give Handmade: Bread & Butter

Today is part three of the Dare to DIY series and I LOVE the theme of this week! 
Dare to Give Handmade!
I think that giving a gift that is handmade is something that really sticks with people these days and today I'm going to share my go-to hostess gift. It is SOOO easy!

BAM! See that... Yes it is bread & butter... "Gourmet" handmade flavored butter, to be exact!

Whipped Honey Butter, Whipped Berry Butter, & Whipped Garlic Butter! YUMMY. To make the butter I used my mini food processor to mix:

- HONEY BUTTER: 1 Stick of butter at room temperature & 2T Lavender Honey
- BERRY BUTTER: 1 Stick of butter at room temperature & 1 container of raspberries
- GARLIC BUTTER: 1 stick of butter at room temperature & 5 cloves garlic, minced

I also included a loaf of (fresh) french bread that I cut in half and wrapped with butcher paper, bakers twine and added an ornament.

All of the items are placed in a basket that I purchased from homegoods!

To me it is the perfect gift!!! You get to eat the yummy butter and bread (P.S. - the berry butter on the pancakes is AMAZING!!!) You get an ornament to hang on your tree & a basket to use for those organization projects which are sure to be a part of your New Year's Resolutions!

SOOO easy!
