Inspiration for this gift came from 37 Recipes How To Make Gifts In A Jar that I found on Pinterest. I am always pinning ideas, so I am happy I finally used one. Want to make your own? Here is how I made my caffeine jar:
– – What You Need – –
Tea packets (already had)
Starbucks Ice Coffee Packets (already had)
I used teal crunchy paper that I already had for the bottom
Note: Think small. I originally bought stacking coffee cups, but they didn’t fit through the top of the mason jar. Guess who now owns two more coffee cups? This girl.
– – What You Do – –
Stuff some crunchy paper in the bottom of the jar
Start stuffing everything else in the jar. I started with the coffee cup and then starting pushing the other items around it
You can top with a tag and/or ribbon. Leave the gift bag at home, this gift is pretty enough to shine on its own.
For about $15 I had a gift that people fought over! (It was for a white elephant gift exchange. Military wives get feisty!)
I’ll give the jar a spin for you:
New Home – soaps, nails, magic eraser, rolled kitchen towel
New Job – office supplies
College – gift cards, office supplies
Travel – travel size goodies, maps, disposable camera
What goodies would you stuff in a mason jar?
