Give Thanks!

I love Thanksgiving! The food, family and friends all gathering around and reflecting on our blessings and gratitude for one another! Indeed, it's a special time! I love this easy and affordable way to give thanks to those who go the extra mile to make our lives better each and every day – teachers, principals, bus drivers, neighbors! It is also the perfect Thanksgiving gift for any guest! Giving thanks to those who bless your life is as easy as 1-2-3 and truly a gift of deliciousness!

What you will need:

- 4 ounce mason jars 

- Fresh apples (I love Honeycrisp apples, but you can't go wrong with any kind of apple for this!)

- Caramel dipping sauce (You can make your own or buy store bought- both are delicious!)

- Ribbon

- Tags (make your own or check it your local craft store!)

- Cello bags (craft store)
