Frugal Christmas Idea: Gift In A Jar

by heather

I have only once made a “gift in a jar” for someone, and it didn’t go well. Since then I’ve avoided gifts in a jar, feeling they were a bit above me. I know they seem simple, but I could never get them to turn out as pretty as they did in the picture.

But, I stumbled across some truly inspiring Gifts In A Jar at These are unique and so easy to do that I might even try to assemble some of them myself.

What recipes has Fox served up?

Here’s a list of her frugal gift ideas:

  1. S’Mores In A Jar
  2. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies In A Jar
  3. Ultimate Chocolate Brownie Mix In A Jar
  4. Chocolate Chip Muffins In A Jar
  5. Chai Tea Mix In A Jar
  6. Chicken Noodle Soup In A Jar
  7. Minestrone Soup In A Jar
  8. Bulk Candy, Nuts, or Chocolate In A Jar

Her site lists step by step instructions for putting each of these frugal gifts together, and she also includes downloadable gift tags for each one, with printed instructions already on them. She’s taken all the work out of the process; all you have to do is put these gifts together and avoid eating them yourself once you’re done.

Click here to go directly to her site to see for yourself. Her pictures are wonderful, and the instructions are very easy to follow. Definitely a great frugal gift idea this year!
