Mason jar gifts in front of a lit Christmas tree
American consumers are expected to spend an average of $850 on holiday gifts this year. Selecting the perfect gifts and sticking to your budget can make holiday gift-giving stressful.
However, creating a personalized gift made by hand is a great way to show someone you care. Mason jars make a great base for holiday gift crafts – and a 12-pack of 8-oz. jars can be found for under $10 at most supermarkets. Decorate using gift wrap, ribbons, and a personalized card.
Fill the jars with the yummy recipes (found below) – they’re sure to please any foodie on your list!
