Fruit Filled-Thrifty Gifty #6

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! After dinner at my in-law's house I noticed what would make another awesome "Thrifty Gifty"...a fruit filled jar of clementines! Clementines are so seasonal and delicious! The best part of this is that you can usually find them on sale at your local market or grocery store. I was at Shop Rite this morning and a whole crate of them were on sale for $4.99. Shop your local Goodwill for jars and turn up the most unique vessels for piling up these colorful treats!

You can easily put this lovely hostess gift together for under $10.00! I would love to receive something of this nature from a friend! It is healthy, delicious, makes a lovely centerpiece and adds a festive splash of color to anyone's tablescape or countertop!

Make this gift extra special by wrapping it in clear cellophane with a knot of raffia at the top! Add a gift tag and voila!

Remember that clementines aren't your end all...there are so many beautiful seasonal fruits like pears, lemons, pomegranates and apples that would fill any jar with holiday bliss!

great idea...and throwing in a pomegranate into the clementines also would looke really pretty.

Love this idea, colorful and healthy! I did something similar,( though not healthy) many years ago when I filled a tall vase with red and white peppermint hard candy then arranged oversized candy canes ( like flowers) in the top. Tied the neck of the vase with wired holiday ribbon. the vase came from AC Moore, the candies from Costco and the large candy canes were at walgreens. I used them for office/house gifts during the holidays.
