Christmas Gift Idea

Do you think making those mason jar gifts for a christmas present for everyone this year is a cheesy idea? We dont have tons of money to spend on everyone and this is a thoughtful gift i think. I myself love to recieve gifts like this. But, is it to cheap? Does anyone else do this for there family? Thanks

  • I think it's a great idea! There is no reason to throw yourself into debt these days for Christmas gifts. Its the thought that counts, and its a lovely one. If you want you can add a whisk or wooden spoons. Or maybe bake a taste of what is in the jar.

  • yeah i have seen them with measuring spoons and cookie cutters too. And i also found some recipes for homemade dog treats in a jar too. Since there are 7 dogs in the family plus my lil one too. So i cant forget the animals lol.

  • I don't care how and where people shop I think everyone would love a gift like that. It's practical and if they can afford to go to the other places maybe they would just really like something simple and thoughtful that they might not get themselves.

  • Sometimes I'm afraid a gift I'm giving is too cheap, and then I think about what the alternative would be: nothing. Haha. I'm sure the gesture is appreciated. I'd love to receive something like that.
