Simplicity. Isn't that what makes life a little bit easier. A DIY mason jar gift is the way to go when you want something that looks nice. Once you have made your jar it can be stuffed with sweets, hot chocolate mix, cookie dough mix, or anything that you'd like. I stuffed mine with letter writing supplies.
Kids will love decorating the outside of a jar and placing their gifts inside. Simply find a jar that you'd like to use. Clean it out. Add shapes to the outside with a bit of modge podge or elmers glue. Add your gifts to the inside and a tag around the top and you are ready to go!
