DIY Spice Blends

This is one of the easiest and affordable gifts you can give. Perfect for Father's Day, Mother's Day, or even Christmas. DIY spice blends are customizable and guaranteed to be a hit!

I used these ADORABLE 4oz Ball jars but you can use anything with a lid. The recipes below are designed for 4oz jars but they are easily doubled to fit larger containers.

Be sure to label your jars before you gift them. You can use a label maker or make a fancy label using or something similar.


3 tbsp chili powder

2 tbsp cumin

4 tsp black pepper

3 tsp onion flakes

2 tsp oregano

2 tsp salt

2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp ground mustard

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


2 tbsp basil

2 tbsp oregano

2 tbsp parsley

1 tbsp rosemary

1 tbsp marjoram

1 tbsp thyme

1 tsp garlic powder (I always add a bit more because garlic is life)

Spicy Cajun

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp smoked paprika

1 tbsp onion flakes

2 tsp black pepper

2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 tsp oregano

2 tsp thyme

Pour ingredients into a bowl and then funnel into your jars. Another fun idea would be to layer the ingredients in the jars!

You could tailor this idea to suit anyone's flavor preferences. Some fun ideas may be Apple Pie Seasoning, Pumpkin Pie Spice (perfect for Pumpkin Spice lattes!), Ranch Seasoning, Chili name a few.

Lots of Love,
