Homemade Champagne Simple Syrups Homemade Honey and Lavender Simple Syrup Homemade Ginger and Pear Simple Syrup Homemade Sweet Rose Simple Syrup Homemade Simple Syrup Gifts Homemade Simple Syrup Gifts Homemade Simple Syrup Hostess Hostess Gifts Today we have another fun little DIY holiday gift for you. This one is a personal favorite for us because we would both LOVE to get this. Jenny and I have a thing for champagne and especially adding a little something extra. Which is why we thought making a trio Homemade Champagne Simple Syrups to gift with these beautiful Perrier-Jouët InBloom Fresh Boxes was a great idea. These simple syrups are so great because you can add them to champagne, or nearly any cocktail drink to quickly and easily fancy it up. We made three flavors: sweet rose, ginger pear, and honey lavender. You could make one or all three to gift with these Perrier-Jouët InBloom Fresh Boxes. We designed these labels with the Fresh Bloom Boxes in mind because together they just make such an amazing hostess gift. Lets talk about how to do this. Here is what you need:

1. Bottles. We like these Wheaton 8oz bottles.
2. Label designs in PINK and GREEN
3. Avery Oval Labels
4. Gift Boxes
5. Pink Tissue Paper or Green Tissue Paper
6. Twine
7. Scissors
8. Tape
9. Make the recipe below for the simple syrups

The easiest thing to do is to download the label design in the color of your choice and go to avery.com/print to upload and print your labels. We just packaged them in our box and wrapped them in tissue paper to match the bloom box type we choose. You can purchase the bloom boxes online here. Enjoy!
