Christmas Gifts In A Jar
Easy Christmas Gifts in a Jar
Are you ready for an economical, cute and useful gift idea? Sometimes it is the simple things in life that make us happy. Easy Christmas gifts in a jar are one of those simple things. I personally love receiving jar gifts. They are fun to look at and they have saved me in a pinch when I need to quickly prepare a treat for guests.
Do you have a favorite cookie recipe? Why not put the dry ingredients in a jar; write the recipe on red construction paper; cut the construction paper to the circumference of the jar; and wrap the construction paper around the front of the jar with white ribbon. Place a fabric scrap or a bow on top of the lid of the jar and you’re set.
Brownies are a wonderful gift anytime of year, but especially during Christmas. Find your favorite brownie recipe and put the dry ingredients into a jar. Type up the recipe, roll it up, and place the rolled recipe into jar along with the ingredients. Wrap the jar in color cellophane, and tie the cellophane with a pretty ribbon.
How about your favorite candies? Jelly Beans, M&M’s etc. (You could even do trail mix or dried fruit for a healthier option) This would make a perfect Christmas gift in a jar, especially for co-workers who need a little snack at work every once in awhile.
For chocolate lovers, why not put chocolate pretzels in a jar. Chocolate pretzels come in packages, and are available in your local supermarket. What a sweet treat this gift would make.
How about theme gifts in a jar? Examples are: Chocolate golf balls; chocolate baseballs; chocolate footballs; chocolate soccer balls. Any of these fun theme gifts would be a hit with anyone who enjoys these sports.
No matter what you choose; traditional; off-beat; baked or bought, making easy Christmas gifts in a jar is fun and allows you to be as creative as you want to be. Gifts in a jar can be an inexpensive treat to give to your colleagues at work; your friends, and even your family members.
The best part is you can go to your local grocery store or discount store and stock up on your favorite candies and chocolates, to make as many jars of treats as you need. You might even make a few extras to have on hand for hostess gifts for holiday parties you may get invited to. Happy Holidays!
