To celebrate the season of giving and sharing, particularly when it comes to swapping recipes, we have the ideal holiday gift for neighbors, coworkers, and friends—do it yourself (DIY) holiday gift jars.
Gifts of food in classic mason jars that contain our all-time, cherished family recipes can be created on a budget, and they encourage family and neighbor togetherness for baking, sharing, and creating new memories…
Give the gift of warmth this holiday season—all in one jar! This grown up hot cocoa is filled with all of the traditional musts including hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, and chocolate. However, it comes with an extra special treat: a mini bottle of Baileys tied up nice with a Christmas ribbon.
Nothing says sweet like a jar of ooey-sticky-sweet toffee blondies in a DIY mason jar. This gift is a perfect combination of sweet—thanks to the heath chips, vanilla, and chocolate chips; and crunchy—thanks to the pecans and toffee bits. Just attach a recipe card to your jar with a nice ribbon or some bakery twine.

Dad might not be into a cookie recipe and Grandpa probably won’t appreciate a jar of banana bread for the making, but both would be really wowed over a custom-blended DIY jar of meat rub. This particular recipe is considered all purpose for poultry, beef, fish, or pork. It’s a tangy-savory blend of dried basil, oregano, kosher salt, thyme, garlic, onion, and ground black pepper just begging for barbecue season.
Now I have trouble buying for the humans who love their animals more than other humans. That was before I tracked down this thoughtful DIY dog biscuit recipe in a jar. It includes everything Fido will roll over and shake a paw for—including peanut butter! Kind of gives me the warm fuzzies all over!
