Using Jars to Create Fabulous Christmas Gifts

December 4, 2013

CHRISTMAS   |   Published December 4, 2013

Libbie, one of my friends from college, contacted me about collecting some ideas for her that involved using recycled bottles for Christmas gifts.   She has a lot of gifts to give to her family and likes to find an inexpensive way to give each person a little something.  When she brought up the suggestion, I had no idea how many great ideas I'd find!

I'm not a person who typically likes a "crafty" gift, so I was on the hunt for ideas that look "professional."  I also was trying to find things other than the typical cookie mix in a jar idea.  If you are on the lookout for some creative ideas for an inexpensive gift, I hope this will give you a little inspiration!

I've tried to find the original source for all these ideas, but unfortunately a lot of them come strictly from Pinterest.  If any of you know the original sources the ones from Pinterest, please let me know.  If something belongs to you and you'd like it removed, please send me an email and I'll take it down immediately.  Hope something here gives you an idea for a way that you can give a gift in a jar this year!
