Fill two of the test tubes with Juniper Berries.

Fill the tea bag with the Kaffir Lime Leaves [Optional - Not Pictured]
Label each of the containers with the pen and the file folder labels. [We used half a label because it looked nicer, except for the label we attached to the strings of the Kaffir Lime Leaves by folding it in half]
Write a description of the Gift on A Craft Paper Gift Tag with a few instructions on the back:
On the front of the Gift Tag, describe the gift as an "INFUSED VODKA & DIY GIN KIT"
On the back of the Gift Tag, describe purpose and methodology of the kit, "Create Your Own Bespoke Vodkas and Gins by combining these spices with vodka in a clean, sterilized container. Allow the mixture to sit in a cool dark place for a few days, then strain and decant into a clean bottle with a good seal! Use the 'House Gin' recipe to get a start on your first Gin. And try the 'Orange Spice Vodka' recipe for a fun, seasonal infused vodka. Then, branch out! Try adding your own spice blend to the gin after the Juniper Berries. Or add fresh fruits and herbs from outside the kit to your vodka to complement the flavours provided! A quick note: the Hibiscus in this kit is the only flavouring which requires a very short infusion period, from 1-4 hours. If you are going to blend it with other flavours, do so at the very end of the infusing process."
Attach the tag to the cinnamon stick[s] with twine [optional].
Handwrite the Sample Recipes on Index Cards or Print them directly from SSJ and fold the paper to fit into the tin.
Fill the tin with the containerized and labeled spices, the descriptive gift tag, and the example recipes.
Give the spice kit to a friend!
