Mason Jar Gift Ideas
Thanks to Kailyn for this article!
I do a lot of canning which means I have a lot of mason jars. Like tons of mason jars, it really is becoming a problem. Now, along with canning I also like to reuse things as much as possible and so, mason jars have become my new wrapping paper. They make the perfect little containers for small trinkets and gifts and when tied with a bow and cute handmade gift tag they look downright adorable.
This year for Christmas I am creating mason jar “survival kits”. Themed jars for my friends and family filled with handy tools and travel sized items. I was able to find most of the items at a local dollar store making these cute kits a really affordable gift. I’m still brainstorming but so far I’ve come up with the following themes:
Teacher Survival Kit
- Mini hand sanitizer
- A few colorful pens
- Sheet of stickers (gold stars anyone?)
- A stain remover stick
- Stress ball
- Hand cream or lotion
Handy Man Survival Kit
- A small multi-tool
- Band-aids (just in case)
- A couple bungee cords
- Bottle of super glue
- Ear plugs
Winter Survival Kit
- Hand warmers
- Mini bottle of hand sanitizer
- Small pack of tissues or a handkerchief
- Travel sized card game
If you are looking for some food-in-mason-jars gift ideas as well, here are a few you can check out to get you started on your gift making.
Like I said, I’m still brainstorming and I’d love some help! If you have any other themes or ideas please share them.
