Alternative Gifts and Giveaways

Past the holiday season, I still have a hangover about Christmas. Maybe because I didn't really feel the holiday that would mostly consist of lechon eating, non stop cooking, and never ending list of parties to go to. Too bad I missed a lot last year. Hopefully we can go home and spend the holidays with family this year. Fingers crossed. :)

Since I was not busy last month, I thought of making home made gifts for us to give to our friends here in Singapore. I'm not so sure where to buy great giveaways for holidays since we're still new here so I guess this is the best option that we have. :)

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic, shredded
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • dash of sea salt
You'll need:

whisk/hand mixer
small bottle/container
green ribbon/red cherries
glue/glue gun

  1. Mix the shredded garlic and herbs to the softened butter. Season with sea salt.
  2. Check the taste and season according to your preference. 
  3. Pour the mixture into your preferred container. Decorate with whatever design you want for the occasion.
  4. Spread the love and give out your presents! :)
Spread the LOVE!
