10 Homemade Gifts in a Jar
Christmas is right around the corner and homemade gifts are something I want to make this year. I think they are so cute and are actually useful! We have so much stuff in our lives already, that I want to give useful and yummy gifts this year!
- Start saving your glass jars. I plan on using some empty glass jars from my groceries to make my homemade gifts in. This will keep the cost down for me, keep jars out of the landfills, and give the jars a new purpose!
- Find free labels! There are tons of free downloads for labels to make your gifts cute! Even if you don’t have a Cricut, there are a lot of printable labels to make cute gift tags for your jars. If you’re giving your homemade gifts in a jar for Christmas, then you might like some of these free printable Christmas tags and labels.
- Not just for Christmas! A lot of these ideas are focused on Christmas gifts, but homemade jar gifts can be perfect for all sorts of things not just Christmas. Teacher appreciation gifts, Grandparent’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and so many more!
