There are two magical things about the gift in a jar ideas that you’ll find here. First, most of them are cheap and easy to make. Second, if you’ve chosen well, the person receiving your gift will love it.
Jar mixes are, for the most part, consumable gifts that aren’t “over the top” but are nevertheless appreciated because they are attractive, practical and, quite often, time-saving. I hope you enjoy this collection of homemade jar gifts as much as I do.
