This holiday season, why not use your food dehydrator to make homemade holiday gifts? Here are a few gift suggestions:

DSC_9144Meat Jerky: Once you’ve made your jerky, put them in individual gift bags, make your own labels, and tie with a nice ribbon.

DSC_9555Ornaments: Make your own personal Christmas tree ornaments. You can use either salt or cinnamon dough. Before drying, make sure you make a hole in the top of the ornament with a small coffee straw. This will give you a way to hang your ornament up. You can use glitter, acrylic paint, stamps, etc to help decorate your ornaments.

Colorful-PotpourriPotpourri: Always start with smells that you know and that you will enjoy! Make something simple like apples and cinnamon sticks. Or different flowers if you enjoy floral scents. You can even dehydrate herbs and spices, place them into gift baggies, and make them your stocking stuffers this year for your foodie friends!
