a year of indulgence

A favorite treat produced in twelve distinct forms equals the perfect DIY gift for most of the men in our lives. From BBQ to beer, beef jerky to books, twelve special and thoughtful selections of their favorite indulgence will keep them happy all year long.

The men in my life love to BBQ, so a year of sauces is perfect. To recreate this gift, spend an hour searching for twelve recipes each offering a specific seasonal touch. Fill twelve jars with your sauces and compile them together with individual brushes for one very special gift.

I designed these blank lined labels (download a page of 20 here) to print in the months on the front and a special note about the selection on the backside.

A couple years ago I did 12 months of wine for Matt and he’s done a 12 month book club for me. I love the creativity and thoughtfulness that comes along with thinking and planning out this gift idea. Use the labels printed onto 8×10 adhesive paper to easily mark any type of treat.
