So earlier in this series we talked about gifting non-food in jars. Today let’s talk about gifting food in jars.
Giving cookie or soup mix in jars has been around for a long time – even before Mason Jars were popular like they are now. There are hundreds of cookies, bars, soups in a jar mixes ideas out there. And cute printable tags to go along with them. I won’t share many cookie mix in a jar ideas in this post because literally I could do a series of posts on mixes in a jar and not cover them all. So if that is something you are wanting to do – do some searching on Pinterest for the one that suits you. And for the jars – you don’t have to use mason jars although those are readily available at any grocery/craft store in your area. Save up spaghetti sauce jars or pickle jars or even frappuccino bottles all year and then use them as your gift jar. I don’t usually throw away glass jars from anything like that because there is so many uses for them!
So let’s explore some other ideas for food in a jar gifts in this post. Even some no-baking-required ideas at the bottom that are super cute! I hope you can find some ideas – these would be great gifts for co-workers, neighbors, friends at church, teachers, even a hostess gift.
I love this twist on cookies in jar – actually bake the cookies for them and gift them in a jar. You could even make your cookie dough up now, freeze it like I showed you yesterday, and whip up a dozen of these gifts in no time later in December.
Pork Rub or any kind of spice rub that you love and use
