‘Tis The Season to Bee Joyful: Honey Gift Idea + Free Printable

bee joyful holiday gift tag-local Colorado honey

Last week, we thanked teachers, friends and family with a Thanks Fir Everything label to go along with Frasier Fir scented all-purpose cleaner. It makes cleaning smell so good! Today, we have another FREE holiday label for you + a sweet gift idea for this holiday season! We’re sharing a BEE JOYFUL label to go along with a honey-themed gift! It’s the sweetest!

We purchased local Colorado honey from Bjorn’s Colorado Honey this season. To go along with the honey, we bought adorable honeycomb waffle makers (for less than $12, these are must buy). Next, we made cute labels. You can either print the label on sticker paper, or attach it with a tag. These two items are great price points – the honey is $14 and up. The waffle maker is just $12. So you can buy both, or one or the other, but the label works either way! Get the free labels below (6 per sheet).

You still have time to order these gifts, especially the honey. That’s the beauty of ordering small and local. It’s not made in China. :)  If you don’t live in Colorado, they will ship to you. It arrives quickly, and they have deals happening right now.

We bought raw local Colorado honey for tea, baked goods and cooking. We also bought Propolis Honey. Propolis, sometimes called bee glue, is a mixture of plant sap, beeswax, and honeybees’ natural enzymes that helps keep the beehive in one piece, and prevents the growth of fungus. For humans, propolis has benefits, too. The flavonoids function as antioxidants, which helps with free radicals (can reduce risk of cancer), it’s a natural anti-histamine, has anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s rich in B-complex vitamins. Plus, it has anti-microbial properties, as well. Um, yes please. A tablespoon a day is what the bee ordered.

Frasier Fir Gift Idea + Free Printable

thanks fir everything-thymes multi purpose cleaner-neighbor and teacher holiday gift

We realize we’re jumping straight into Christmas with this post, but with all the shipping woes and economy meltdowns, we got started early this year. We want to help you do the same.

The smell of Christmas makes us so happy. So, might as well make it smell like Christmas as often as possible, right? Typically, it’s candles and diffusers that diffuse our favorite smells around the house, but this time, we’re talking about the Thymes Frasier Fir All-Purpose cleaner. The reality of being a mom is that we clean our counters (among other things) about 5 or more times a day. While gifting or receiving an all-purpose cleaner isn’t the sexiest gift, it’s a practical one that can be use daily, and also one that smells amazing. It’s worth sharing something that evokes cheerful emotions, especially when we are doing mundane tasks.

Let’s spread the smell of Christmas cheer this year with our latest printable to go along with Thymes all-purpose cleaner. We’re giving these early to teachers and neighbors this year.

We made two versions of the free printable. One says HAPPY HOLIDAYS and the other says MERRY CHRISTMAS. Choose the best one for you, and print it on card stock paper, then attach it to the bottle.

We have some holiday gift guides coming your way soon, so be on the lookout for those.

You can buy the Thymes all-purpose cleaner here or it’s on sale for $11 here.

If the cleaner isn’t your thing, you can buy a beautiful candle or diffuser oil.

DIY Bleach Ice Dye Sweatshirt

First of all, I can’t believe I have a teenager. Well, not officially, but it sure looks like it…and she sure acts like it. I’m beyond grateful for her, but may God help us. She helped me with my latest project – DIY Ice Dye with Bleach! Tie-dye apparel is all the rage for tweens, teens, and let’s face it, adults, too! We all love to wear it (especially in our loungewear). After making our sweatshirts, we are hooked to this ice dye technique. Bring on all the bleach ice dye projects!

The materials and directions to make DIY bleach ice dye sweatshirts, shirts or pants are on Momtastic. Check it out!
