Awesome idea.... Housewarming Gift in a Jar: This would work for so many gift situations...wedding, anniversary, birthday & more. Easy to customize for the recipient with recipes, pot holders, dish towels, cookie cutters, homemade baking mixes and spices.
1 orange, C. cranberries, 1 T. whole cloves, 3 cinnamon sticks, 1 bay leaf. Quarter the orange and place along with everything else in small pot on stove. Cover with water, and simmer on low. Fill your house with the smell of Christmas.
