Gifts In A Jar

Hm. Yesterday: cupcakes. Today: muffins. You might start thinking I like cake.
Have you heard of Gifts In A Jar? Of course you have. No? Look here, here & here

Ever since I first laid eyes on this ingenious idea, I have been saying that one day I will make a gift mix for somebody. Hasn't happened yet. However, somebody gave me one! That's a better scenario altogether!

My friend Susan made this Cranberry Muffin mix for me:

She printed out a card with the required additional ingredients and attached it to the jar:

All I had to do was add buttermilk, butter and 2 eggs in order to make a plate of yummy muffins within the half hour!

They were super-moist and delicious. 

Susan, if you are reading this, be prepared to be pestered for the complete recipe!

Has anybody else ever made a gift in a jar for somebody or received one?
