Every year, the list of people to give presents to seems to grow bigger and bigger. Don’t get me wrong, I love to spoil others with presents! But with so many people on my list, I need to come up with a budget-friendly gift idea. Christmas gifts in a Mason jar allow me to give everyone on my list something special.

Why do I love Christmas gifts in a jar?

  • They are super cute
  • They are (typically) budget friendly
  • Most require little effort to put together
  • The jar is your “package” so you don’t have to wrap them!

There are so many Christmas gifts you can give in a Mason Jar. I’ve rounded up my favorites below to share with you.
