Homemade Edible Christmas Gifts in Mason Jars

Sharing is caring!

Because I am a planner, today I wanted to share some fun edible Christmas gifts that you can plan for now, and give as gifts next month. These gifts are not only fun to receive, they are also inexpensive to make. Perfect for gifts for friends, coworkers, teachers and neighbors.

18 Edible Gifts in Mason Jars

Hello Friends!

I love this time of year, primarily because I get to spend time with friends and family, but also because I can get creative – like with these edible Christmas gifts in mason jars. Edible gifts are fun because it allows me to be a bit more frugal (you can make several from one set of ingredients), but it also allows people to actually use and enjoy the gift they’re given more than once. (Well, and there are no sizes to worry about! That’s a bonus.)

From jellies and jams to hot cocoa, cookie and brownie mix these gift ideas make great teacher and neighbor gifts for just about anyone. Add a festive ribbon and gift tag and you’re set. Make sure you take one along to any holiday party you might be invited to – the host or hostess will love it.

Don’t forget to share how to prepare the recipe. Check below for some other tips.

Super intriguing. I love the melting snowman in a jar. I think Scarlet would love to make that for loved ones. And for herself!
