Flavored Popcorn Kit (gift idea)

Popcorn kit 1I love making popcorn at home. Whether I'm getting ready to snuggle under some blanket and watch a movie, or am just in the mood for a late night snack- popcorn is my go-to favorite! Here's a great little gift idea of any popcorn lover you might know.

Popcorn kit 2Popcorn kit 3JPGPair little bags of dressed up popcorn kernels with disposable popcorn bags (or boxes) and flavored salts. I made three different flavor combinations.

Salt flavorsHere are the simple recipes for each flavored salt: Salt and Pepper– If you can toast your peppercorns before grinding. If you cannot find whole peppercorns, don't worry! Regular is fine too. Combine 1/4 cup salt with 1 tablespoon ground pepper. Tex-Mex Salt- Combine 1/4 cup salt with a pinch of chili powder and zest from 1 lime. Rub the zest into the salt before storing, to really get the flavors to blend. Cinnamon Sugar- Combine 1/4 cup sugar with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. This is for when you are the mood for something a little more like Kettle Corn. :) 

These cute kits make great gifts! We found the cute popcorn boxes and spice jars at Target. xo. emma + elsie 

  • Two ideas: 1. You pick out the outfit. I’ll wear it all einvneg, or until you decide it’s time for me to take it off.2. Some night when we can’t be together one ultra-sexy phone call.I have some others, but I don’t think I can say them here! But you could give coupons for certain um activities, if you know what I mean.

  • There’s a way to pop it in a brown paper bag. That would be cute to put it in with directions.

  • I have been looking for a similar idea but as a fundraiser for my organization. Instead of gifts I want to sell the sets or make the flavored popcorn ourselves and sell it that way. Thank you for this post it was the help I was looking for!

  • What a great idea for hostess gifts as well as holidays. Love this, and pinning it now, so I don’t forget!

  • Love this gift idea! I have a few friend’s whose birthdays are coming up and this will make the perfect gifts for them.

    I will also have to try Kate’s tip of sprinkling hot cocoa powder on my popcorn next time I make some. It sounds delicious.

  • great gift idea!! my husband and i tried old bay on our popcorn (seafood spice) and we looove it! its the only way we eat it now

  • What a super-cute idea! I have been packaging up cherry liqueur in jars to give as gifts this year. it’s nice to do something personalised

  • This is a very cute and creative idea. It would be perfect for my mom she’s a popcorn addict…seriously it’s kind of weird, she’d get a kick out of this.


  • What a great idea for a gift and so odd that my house mates and I were talking about popcorn over the dinner table earlier. My favourite is chilli powder and garlic salt 🙂

  • Wow. I like popcorn too, but it was boring to eat only carmel or salted version. I’ll try them at home 🙂 Thanks for the inspirations :))


  • such a cute gift idea!


  • I’m on such a low budget this Christmas and have been searching for gift ideas and this one is just PERFECT!

  • i would love to know how you make your popcorn. do you “pop” it with oil first and put the salt/sugar on it afterwards? i never really loved homemade popcorn because the sugar/salt just falls off. do you have any idea how to get the popcorn to taste the way it does in the cinema?

  • I would love this as a gift. I want to buy an air popper!
