I also have several great little books by Goose Berry Patch on the same subject. They have great ideas from quick breads and cookies to soups. They also give you tags and recipe cards. Well worth the investment.
1 wide mouth quart Jar
1 wide mouth jar lid and ring

Follow the measurements and tamp everything down tightly. Cut a large circle of your favorite material (mine is from old valences that I had) and place it over the jar lid and screw down the ring over the material.
Create a cute little instruction tag ( I made mine using my PC Crafter account) and tie it to the jar with some ribbon or raffia.
Tada! You have a great simple and cute gift. I made up several at once to have on hand, and I am so glad I did. I have already had a few things pop up so these little things will be very handy!
Hope this frugal little idea helps you out this Christmas season! Remember to relax and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas!
