Whenever the holidays come around, I sometimes feel a sense of dread washing over me when I think about the many Christmas gifts I’ll need to get. People with big families know what I’m talking about. The thought of buying so many gifts can be slightly unnerving. That’s why I’m a big proponent of jar gifts. Gifts in a jar are the best strategy when you want to give something creative and special to everyone in your family (extended family included). Jar gifts are beautiful, easy to make, and very inexpensive. You can dress up each jar pretty easily, too. Add a ribbon here. Glue on some holly there. When you’re deep into decorating Christmas jar gifts, the task becomes mechanical at some point, and you can crank out a whole crate full of jar gifts in no time. I often turn on a favorite holiday movie in the background, too.
If I’m being honest, the hardest and most time-consuming part in coming up with the perfect jar gift is the idea. Great homemade gifts require thinking, and as Christmas gets closer and closer, time to think becomes less and less available. We all have so much to do! Whether we’re baking cookies or putting up Christmas decorations, there is never a dull moment in holiday preparation. This is why I LOVE lists. Did I make Christmas Cookie Gifts in a Jar last year? If so, then I’ll just gladly mosey on down to another item on the list. Making a list is quick. It’s convenient, and it lets you jump right in and tackle all of those gifts you still need to make.
