mason jar recipe gifts
Twenty-four percent of Americans consider holiday spending their most stressful one-time expense of the year. Making gifts in mason jars is a budget-friendly way to show someone you care about them during the holidays.
Packing the mix and extra goodies into the jars neatly ensures visible layers, minimal shifting and lots of visual appeal for a cute gift.
The best part about these homemade gifts is that your friends and families are guaranteed to use the gift again. Energy balls are the perfect snack to have on hand that is tasty and kid-friendly. A healthier cookie mix is a great way to spread health and wellness around the holidays when constant over-eating and indulging is frequent. You can also help your loved ones stay warm with a delicious soup mix that is low in sodium and is full of fiber-packed ingredients.
