It’s a question millions of us are asking this Veterans Day: how can you truly thank the men and women who’ve given so much in the service of their country when the words “thank you” just don’t seem enough?
One way to show the troops overseas a small token of our appreciation is to send them something to remind them of home. Consider one of the following homemade gifts from your kitchen that are easy to ship and store; it’s a minor gesture, but also a thoughtful way to show your gratitude.
|Spiced Rosemary Nuts
Not too sweet and not too spicy, these toasted nuts are sure to please. Pack them in small decorative tins for a thoughtful and personal gift.
|Hazelnut and Dried Cherry Biscotti
Dried cherries lend a festive color to these crisp cookies, which are as durable as they are tasty.
These crisp cookies are packed with flavors of seasonal spices and molasses. They can be stored in a tightly covered container for up to three weeks, so they’re ideal for shipping.
