7. Bread in a Jar (Bottle)

Okay, so this one isn’t a mason jar but it’s a glass container nonetheless. I love the larger canning bottle look (you can find similar bottles here). This bread sounds delish!

9. Rainbow Cake in a Jar

We’ve talked about rainbow cake in a jar before, but it is brilliant enough to bring back to the forefront. Yum. Add a spoon wrapped in twine and a custom label to make it your own, ready to give as a gift.
