I have fond memories of watching my mom put together holiday gifts. She was super creative and frugal to boot.

One Christmas that stands out in my memory is the year when she gave pie kits to all her friends. At Pic N’ Save, she had found cutesy, very 1970’s ceramic pie plates with recipes decorated on the bottom. In fact, they looked just like this. She made up several batches of my Gramma John’s pie crust and bought a few cans of pie filling because that’s what we used back in those days. She packaged it all up as a pie kit.

Another year was cookie dough, sprinkles, and cookie cutters all packaged up as a cookie kit. One year, she gave my soon-to-be brother-in-law a box labeled “instant Christmas tree”. It had all the basics to decorating a Christmas tree.

In typical Nanna fashion, I’ve created a cheap and easy gift that is so fun and tasty, I may just stash a box in my office for one of those days. It’s a S’mores Kit complete with instructions on how to make s’mores indoors

Here’s what you’ll need for a s’mores kit:

Make a S'mores Kit - Package up the ingredients for s'mores for a fun, frugal, and easy holiday gift.
  • gift boxes (I chose some with windows) or gift bags
  • graham crackers
  • marshmallows
  • ziptop bags
  • chocolate bars
  • the printable recipe cards (see below)

Here’s how to make a s’mores kit:

Once you have your items handy, it’s just a quick matter of assembly. I used a collection of different chocolate bars, but you could use just one kind if you like.

Divide the marshmallows into ziptop bags and then divide all the other ingredients among the boxes you have assembled. We included enough ingredients for at least eight s’mores per box.

Be sure to include the instructions for how to make s’mores indoors. You can write them on a card by hand or print out these simple recipe cards.

That’s all there is to it. You can easily pull together these kits in about 15 minutes or less. I know for a fact that Legoland sells them for nine bucks and they aren’t half as cute. 😉

These make great Christmas gifts, but you can easily gift it all year round. When are s’mores out of season?

  1. I’m going to do this and include the fancy Gheradelli foil wrapped squares you can buy everywhere, including Target and TJMaxx.

    I do have a question: Why does the chocolate need to be broiled on a graham cracker? The heat from the broiled marshmallow should be more than enough to slightly melt the chocolate.
