Homemade gifts in a jar are fun to make and a frugal holiday gift to give to just about everyone. Great when you need a little something to show appreciation to a teacher, neighbor or friend. They’re also a great starting off point for gift baskets!
5 Grain Pancake Mix in a jar from Good Life Eats. She also is kind enough to include a free printable recipe card for you to attach to your jar.
Cowgirl cookies from Bakerella. You could change the pink out for something more seasonal.
Peppermint stick cocoa from My Recipes. Yummy! Perfect for a cold wintry day!
For your vegan friends how about a homemade dairy free mac & cheese mix. Change the presentation to one that’s more Christmassy.
How about cinnamon honey butter from Tidy Mom. Doesn’t that sound delish. She even gives a great tutorial on she made the jars look so cute here.
How about your favorite soup mix in a jar? This is curried-lentil soup from Good Houskeeping.
Homemade cocktail mixers from the kitchn. You might want to use something other than a jar for these. I got bottles that look like this from Cost Plus World Market (also Ikea has them).
Chocolate dipped pretzels in a jar from Alice Golden. I made similar ones last year with stick pretzels and they were a huge hit!
This is one is so easy because you can make a batch of cookies, dressed up nuts or homemade candy (or buy them) and place them in a jar, wrap with Christmas ribbon and fabric and you have a very nice present. Photo source Cartwheels In My Mind
