I love gifting edible gifts! Food brings people together, brings a smile on one’s face, and is a useful gift that you know will be used…not to mention a gift that is cost effective, yet meaningful. I thought that a wonderful holiday time gift would be special holiday overnight oats!
I stopped by Walmart to get the materials I needed to make a couple of different flavors and materials for my holiday overnight oats. The ingredients I bought were:
- Rolled Oats
- Dried cranberries
- Dried pineapple
- Dried Mango
I quickly had all the ingredients I needed for delicious overnight oats that could be kept at room temperature. Presentation is everything, so I wanted a creative way to package my holiday overnight oats. I got ribbon, cardstock for tags, and last but not least, I got Rubbermaid TakeAlongs. I found at a Walmart end cap holiday colors of Rubbermaid TakeAlongs. I love using products that are re-usable as much as I can, so these seemed like the perfect way to package my edible gifts.
Not only were they in red and green, perfect for the holidays, but my gift recipient could continue to use them for food storage long after they enjoy their holiday overnight oats, since they’re freezer safe, microwave safe, and dishwasher safe!
WIth the materials and ingredients I bought at Walmart, I could make plenty of beautiful, edible gifts in a very cost effective way! It was then time to put together my gifts:
Step 1. Make my first flavor of overnight oats, which I simply called “Holiday Overnight Oats”. I did this by putting 1/2 a cup of rolled oats in my red Rubbermaid TakeAlongs, then topped generously with dried cranberries, and a tablespoon of honey. Then I topped with an additional 1/2 cup of rolled oats.
Step 2. Package! I wrapped a ribbon around my red Rubbermaid TakeAlongs, along with a tag that had instructions to add 1 cup of almond milk, and let sit overnight.
Step 3. I prepared flavor number 2 in a green Rubbermaid TakeAlongs; my Mele Kalikimaka Overnight oats. I put 1/2 cup of rolled oats, a generous layer of dried pineapple and dried mango, 1 tablespoon of honey (maple syrup would work too), and then topped with an additional 1/2 cup of rolled oats.
Step 4. I closed my Rubbermaid TakeAlongs, then topped with a ribbon and instruction gift tag.
Step 5. Gift and enjoy the giving season!
You can of course get creative with your dried fruit or nut topping, but if you like to replicate the flavors I created, you can download the printable tags I created for free, by clicking the image below:
If you print out these free downloadable tags, you can cut them out, fold in half, and be able to write a personalized message on the inside to go along with your overnight oats.
