I always feel really awful when someone I love a lot has a birthday and I can’t think of a good gift. Thankfully this does not happen all the time, but last week I was in that situation again when thinking of a gift for my dad.
In the end I came up with the idea of homemade cereal in a nice glass jar. I don’t like the sweetness of granola, so I always eat muesli for breakfast and I know my dad does too. Lately I have been mixing my own muesli instead of buying a pre-packaged version. I use the ‘basismuesli’ from here and add sunflower and pumpkin seeds, sultanas, nuts and crushed flaxseed.
I bought a nice glass jar, washed it and put in my home-mixed muesli. I did not mix the ingredients, because I liked the layered look. I also added a lot of good wishes. I hope he will think of me every time he has this muesli for breakfast 😉
