This Homemade Popcorn Gift Set is an easy, thoughtful holiday gift for anyone on your list.

Homemade holiday gifts are the best kind, especially when there’s food involved. If we take the time to mix together a few gifts in our kitchen, it adds a little extra holiday cheer.

I love the cookie swaps and holiday goodies that help make this season so special. For my gift-giving list this year, I came up with a way to share one of my favorite healthy snacks, flavored homemade popcorn.

This gift set includes seasoning mixes for three flavors of popcorn that my family loves.

  • The Fiesta Mix is a savory topping that brings the taste of tacos to your popcorn bowl.
  • The Chocolate Mix provides a healthy way for chocoholics to cover their daily chocolate quota.
  • The Gingerbread Mix makes a great substitute for gingerbread cookies without so much sugar and butter.

Homemade Popcorn Gift Set Process

Stir together the ingredients for each seasoning mix in a small bowl and place them in a separate 4-ounce mason jar for each flavor. Print or write out the brief instructions for each flavor and attach the instructions to the spice jar. Add a package of organic, non-GMO popcorn kernels to these seasoning mixes for a fun holiday gift set.

  1. This is great! I love making edible gifts for the holidays. One year I made maple popcorn, which was a big hit, but these spice blends look much easier to manage! Love it!

  2. It doesn’t seem like the recipes above would fill the jars? Does it fill it nicely or do you have to 2x or 3x the recipe to get the jars nice and full?

    1. Kaite, I use little 4-ounce (half cup) jars, and the recipes fill them nicely. Each recipe generates 6 to 7 tablespoons of seasoning. A completely full jar would be 8 tablespoons, and you need a little space at the top.

      1. It didn’t seem to me that recipes made enough to fill the jars, but I am so glad you chimed in and said it does. I am going to use these for Valentine’s Day.

  3. This is so fantastically clever (and of course I’m making a few batches of popcorn to try these out for myself!)

    1. Thanks, Deanna! I’m excited that I made this “sample batch” well before the holidays. It gives me an excuse to try them out over and over (and over). 🙂

  4. I have been having a huge popcorn craving lately. Love the way you’ve mixed them up with spices. It would make a lovely gift.

    1. Thanks, and great question! I just added a link in the second paragraph to the jars on Amazon. They have a good price right now (just over $1 per jar). You can also find them at craft stores like Michael’s and AC Moore, or else try Christmas Tree Shops or Container Store.

  5. What a fantastic idea! I’m especially fond of the gingerbread variation. I’ll have to try that for sure.
