15 Creative Non-Food Gift Jars You Can Make

Are you looking at making some of your Chrristmas gifts this year?

Gifts in jars are a fun idea and all you need to make them is a Mason jar, a few supplies and some imagination.

Read on for 15 fun non-food gifts in jars you can make this holiday season.



During the holidays, it's great to have a lot of versatile options for gift-giving.

One of the great things about a gift in a jar is that, just as with gift baskets, you can literally build any kind of gift within your jar.

This kind of gift making inspires creativity and it is a lot of fun to receive, as well. 

I have found a number of really fun gift jars that you can make.

Many of these are amazingly simple to put together, but will inspire big smiles on the faces of the people you love.

Some are great seasonal gifts, and others will be useful anytime of year. 

I do hope that at least one of these gift jar projects also inspires you to come up with something uniquely designed for the special people in your own life.

I love how flexible many of these ideas are - and I've had fun thinking about how I can turn them into the perfect gifts for folks I love. 

What will you make this year?
