Homemade gifts are a long-standing holiday tradition, and one that brings rewards to both giver and receiver. The giver takes pride in hand-crafting something special for another person, and the recipient usually feels honored that something was made for them rather than being purchased at a store.
With homemade gifts, the sky's the limit on what you can make for another person. One very popular homemade gift idea is that of Gifts in a Jar. Not only are gift jars easy to make and beautiful to look at with their many layers of ingredients, they also result in some rather tasty goodies!
Some of our favorite gift jar recipes include Chocolate Chip Cookies, Fudge Brownies and Oatmeal Scotchies. If you're looking for something a bit more savory, try the Fiesta Dip, Corn Bread and Minestrone Soup gift jar recipes. A particularly unique recipe is the Gingerbread Pancake gift jar - talk about a tasty holiday morning treat!
Another fun aspect of making gift jars is decorating and labeling the jars! You can dress up a simple canning jar with raffia, ribbons or scraps of beautiful fabric, as well as ribbons or charms. Let your creativity flow! We offer great printable labels for each one of our tasty gift jar recipes, complete with baking instructions. Try printing them on colored paper!
