Everybody loves giving and getting gifts. Nobody likes trying to think of what to get for someone that you kind of know and you like them well enough to get them something, but you don’t want to spend a ton of money, but you don’t want to look like you didn’t spend much money or thought, either… You know what I mean?
It’s like, the crossing guard for your guards. He’s a lovely man and he keeps your kids safe as they cross the street. You want to show your appreciation and get him a little something, but you have, like a MILLION presents to buy and only so much money to spend.
Here’s what you do. Mason Jar Gift! It looks adorable and it definitely is thoughtful. It takes some assembly on your part, so there’s definitely some time spent, even if you did’t spend a whole lot of money. Mason Jar Gift sets are the best way to show people like the crossing guard your appreciation.
What is a Mason Jar Gift?
It’s basically a mason jar filled with a few little goodies that someone will love. It’s great because the mason jar is a cute vessel for gifting. You don’t have to wrap it. Fill it with some candy and slap a bow on it and you have a very basic Mason Jar gift.
But we’re not doing basic. We’re going creative and I found some super creative Mason Jar Gift ideas that will make you look like a champion gift giver.
You want to be a champion gift giver, right?
