Let's start with FREE printable Christmas gift tags!
I used some beautiful, festive watercolor images I found on Creative Market and turned them into printable gift tags just for you.
There are two different sheets of these gift tags - one is for standard use, and the other includes a tag with instructions to attach to the simmer pot kit gift that I'll explain below.

Download the high-res JPG to your computer, print it on letter-sized cardstock paper, cut out the tags, and punch a hold in the top of each one.
Easy Simmer Pot Gift Idea
A simmer pot is when you add delicious smelling fruits, spices and any extras to a pot of simmering water or a slow cooker so that you fill your home with a natural, seasonal scent.
You can easily give a simmer pot kit as a gift by adding dried ingredients to a mason jar, and then attaching a tag explaining how to use the mix.
The dried fruit, spice and greenery combinations for your own simmer pot kit are endless. For mine, I dried some apple and orange slices in the oven. You can bake the slices at 175 F for a couple of hours and even dust them in cinnamon.
After adding those to a recycled mason jar, I also included some whole cloves, dried cranberries, a vanilla bean, and a couple of spruce tree clippings.
Pop your favourite dried simmer pot ingredients in a mason jar, tie on a gift tag and instructions tag, and your beautiful DIY Christmas gift is ready to give!
See how I make this simmer pot kit plus 9 more DIY gift ideas in my video below:
- one orange
- one apple
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp whole cloves
- 1 Tbsp dried cranberries
- ½ vanilla bean
- 2 small spruce tree clippings
- recycled pasta jar, or mason jar
- Slice the orange and apple ⅛" thick and sprinkle 1 tsp ground cinnamon on the apple slices.
- Bake the fruit slices in an oven at 175 F for about 2 hours until they're dried. Flip the slices after one hour.
- Add 4 apple and 4 dried orange slices to a recycled pasta jar with a lid.
- To the jar, add 1 tsp whole cloves, 1 tbsp dried cranberries, ½ a vanilla bean, and 2 small spruce tree clippings.
- Place the lid on the jar, and tie a gift tag and a tag with simmering instructions around the jar.
