Christmas Mason Jar Gifts

One of my favorite things to do around the holidays is to make simple homemade gifts.  Making homemade gifts doesn’t have to be expensive and they don’t need to be extremely time consuming either!  These Christmas mason jar gifts are perfect for family members, friends, and teachers.  You only need a few simple supplies and about 30 minutes to put all four jars together!  You can gift them as a set or separately.  

I decided to do a few classic mason jars that I have seen around the internet such as a simple snowman and santa,  but I also added our own spin on a Gingerbread jar, which from what I could tell, hasn’t been done before.  I just love how she turned out!   Of course we couldn’t leave out the Grinch!  Ever year we watch the Grinch movie, the one with Jim Carey specifically, and have a Grinch themed party with gingerbread house making, games and yummy food. 

Each Christmas Mason Jar Gift jar is easy and quick to put together and you can swap out the candies or treats in the jars for other variations that you might like.  If you don’t like white chocolate pretzels you could fill the jar with mini marshmallows, perfect for some hot chocolate. Not a fan of mint M&M’s, swap in some green peppermint candies instead.  Even Swedish fish can be swapped for Twizzlers. Just try to choose coordinating colors with the theme jar you plan on making!
