Wedding Gift Ideas: Homemade Pizza Sauce

Wedding gift ideas
If you’re anything like me, you have countless parties to attend this summer. From weddings, to baby showers and barbeques… the list goes on.

I’ve been searching for wedding gift ideas that I could make, to pair with items on my friend’s registry. Of course, her registry was filled with appliances, cooking utensils and towels—the usual. Being budget cautious, I hunted her registry for something affordable. I spotted a beautiful Williams and Sonoma Pizza Pan. The price was right, but something about a pizza pan just seemed lame. Boring. Heartless. Ok, I’ll stop now. Luckily, my creativity kicked in, and I thought, let’s make it a date night! Pizza pan, pre-made wheat crust, homemade pizza sauce, a fancy pizza cutter and a hand crocheted blanket to cozy up with. Sounds meaningful, sweet and thoughtful, right? Great, I thought so too! But one problem. I am not the greatest cook.

I stumbled upon this FANTASTIC recipe that’s easy. I even tested it on a pizza before gifting it. After all I can’t let my pizza sauce ruin the end of my friend’s “date night.” It did not disappoint. And as long as you’re going the extra mile, why not make some for yourself? Here’s the easy recipe from thebusybhomemaker.com

The best Mother’s Day gifts are ones that are thoughtful and come from the heart. It doesn’t have to be expensive, it just needs to be meaningful to Mom. One of our favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas is creating a way to put her child’s artwork on display! We know that Mom (and Grandmom) cherish their children’s artwork, so take a few of those masterpiece designs from an overflowing drawer or tub and give them as a way for her to display on the walls or her desk or mantel.

As shown in these Three Hand Sketched Frames Wall Decals and True Colors Wall Decals designs, you simply upload the kids’ artwork as an image and pick the color of the frames or the circles to match the rest of the room. They are a great addition to a play room, kid’s bedroom, bathroom or hallway!
