Do you need some quick, easy, inexpensive, trendy and cute Christmas gifts? We’ve got you covered with these DIY Mason Jar Gifts! Lots of creative choices- both food and non-food jars! Can’t go wrong!
Mason Jar Gifts – The Really Perfect Gift Idea
So let’s talk about mason jar gifts. There is everything to love about them. I’ll go first.
Mason jar gifts are versatile. Whatever your gift recipient happens to love, you can probably shove it in a mason jar.
Mason jar gifts are trendy. You know, the whole Fixer-Upper-Joanna-Gaines-Farmhouse thing. Now you’ve given your friend a stylish decorative vase to put flowers in as well as a trendy glass to sip lemonade out of – on top of all the goodies inside. Go, you.
Mason jar gifts are inexpensive. You can buy all your items in bulk and create several gifts for just a few dollars each. Very easy on your budget! And, I often save all kinds of jars – spaghetti sauce, salsa jars, coconut oil jars, pesto jars… really anything, and any size! Keep stocking up those jars and you can save a little money!
Mason jar gifts are easy. You do not have to be a DIY genius to put these together (thank the Good Lord). You can make them as simple or complex as you like, depending on your crafting acumen. These are perfect for last-minute gifts as well.
Have I convinced you yet?!? Take a look at what we’ve got going on here – lots of fun, creative and unique gifts- both food and non-food gift ideas to choose from. And if you don’t see what you are looking for, I bet you can come up with a pretty crafty and creative idea yourself.
If you really want to take the easy way out (no judgment here!), at the end of the post, I’ve listed some links where you can just buy them.
