Christmas Friendship Tea

Fast Christmas gifts
 
Christmas is in a few days and sometimes you need some last minute fast Christmas gifts. Just when you think you have something for everyone on your list, you member a few more people you need something for. Last minute fast Christmas gifts can be expensive. Be careful to not just buy something because you need a present.

A few years ago, my husband was still in college and we had very little money for the holidays. I worked full time and by the time I came home in the evening I was tired and certainly not in the mood to spend hours doing Christmas crafts. I needed a fast Christmas gift idea. My mother suggested this and I have used it over the years. Try your own variation, It is fun and fast and most important very inexpensive. But it lets your friends and family knows they are important to you and says Merry Christmas in a creative way.
CHRISTMAS FRIENDSHIP TEA
1 jars (18 oz.) Tang or any other orange drink
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup red cinnamon candy (red hots work well)
1/3 cup instant tea mix
1 teaspoon ground cloves
Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container. To serve, stir 1 1/2 tablespoons of mix into 1 cup hot water, stirring until the candies dissolve.
Buy small jars at the dollar store and put the tea mixture in w it a Christmas bow and add the following poem.
ON CHRISTMAS DAY AT HALF PAST THREE BREW YOURSELF A CUP OF TEA I'LL THINK OF YOU, YOU'LL THINK OF ME SITTING BESIDE THE CHRISTMAS TREE
 
Fast Christmas gifts can be some of the best. Money is not the important issue; it is the thought that says you cared enough to remember your friend at this special season. So be creative and come up with your own tea mixture and  smile because Christmas day will have a special meaning as you drink your tea  and think of all your friends and family who you gave this simple gift to. Merry Christmas and enjoy.
