Happy Wednesday! So, three things have expired: Black Friday specials, Cyber Monday deals, and, yes, Thanksgiving leftovers. That means only one thing: it’s officially the holiday season! Consequently, it is at this precise time every year that I begin to feel a little craftier than usual. You too? Good – you’ll LOVE today’s post. In today’s post you’ll find ten of our favorite, most creative ideas for DIY mason jar gifts. Each unique find is a do-it-yourself tutorial (look under the photo for the link) so you can get creative in your very own kitchen. Make ‘em as homemade, meaningful holiday gifts this season, give to your MOH or bridesmaids as a gesture of thanks for being so supportive, or get inspired to create dozens to give as favors at your wedding. We love handmade at Emmaline Bride – and we think handmade gifts make the best gifts! Read on to see which ten made the list + get ready to start creating yours! Enjoy!
DIY Mason Jar Gifts
1. Toffee Blondies in a Jar
Here’s a sugar rush to kick off the list: toffee blondies. These may be the most delicious looking cookies in a jar I’ve seen yet.
2. Cherry Crisp in a Jar
I love a delicious cherry crisp – and, in a miniature size, who can resist?
3. Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar
Instead of a recipe with mix, pre-bake your famous cookies (or try this triple chocolate chip cookie recipe) and place ‘em in a jar. Wrap the lid + gift!
4. DIY Mason Jar Candle
If you’ve ever wondered how to make your own candles, consider this DIY mason jar candle tutorial spotted here. I’d love to try this one someday.
5. Sewing Kit in a Jar
Who could use a miniature sewing jar? EVERYONE. Plus, it can be customized with cutesy fabric patterns on the lid and your favorite sewing supplies.
6. Cocoa in a Jar
Who doesn’t love homemade hot cocoa? Make up a batch and gift to your favorite friend this holiday season – or make dozens and give away as favors at your winter wedding.
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!
8. Smores Cake in Jar
There are no words. This is amazing.
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.
10. Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn in a Jar
Crave salty and sweet? This cinnamon sugar popcorn is a perfect treat! And, no, I didn’t mean to rhyme there. ;)
You can also pop your own and then place in a decorative jar.
Happy Planning (+ Gifting)!
