101 Days of Christmas: Gift in a Jar Ideas
Last year I shared 9 gifts in a jar ideas, and this year I set out to see if I could find 9 more. We’ve all seen the classic cookie recipe in a jar, but there are so many other possibilities as well. From a gift card snow globe (#3) to a mason jar sewing kit (#8), there’s something for everyone, and these practical, adorable gifts don’t even need to be wrapped!

Anyone who follows me on Pinterest knows I have a thing for s’mores, so when I saw this gift idea at Squawkfox, I knew I had to include it. Layer graham cracker crumbs, chocolate and marshmallows for this simple s’more bars recipe, which is sure to be a hit!

Ooey gooey toffee blondies? Yes, please! Dress up your normal cookie-in-a-jar recipe with these toffee blondies, and put a spin on the classic “recipe tag” by tying a recipe card around the jar with twine instead. So pretty!

Hot cinnamon milk sounds like the perfect cozy winter drink, and I’m looking forward to making this recipe for my girls as well. This jar gift would be perfect by itself or as part of a bigger family gift basket with a snowman kit, snowballer, etc!

Although this picture is actually from Anthropologie, I think a mason jar sewing kit would be easy enough to make on your own, and I especially love the vintage-y look of the materials they used. You could also use bright colored scissors, thread, twine, etc. for a different feel!
