We’ve all made them or received them. Gifts in a jar. You know, the cookie mix, the hot chocolate concoction. Don’t get me wrong, I loved making and gifting them and I loved receiving them as gifts. Last year I even made Sugar Scrubs… in a jar!

This year as I contemplated some frugal but kick butt gifts, I decided to search out unique ideas to put  a twist on the ol’ Gift in a Jar idea.

The perfect jar gift for the person who loves to bake. A miniature whisk, some fun cookie cutters, and maybe a pastry brush all tied up with bakers twine. Perfect.

I don’t know about you, but I love the aromas of Christmas. Now you can gift that wonderful fragrance.  Nest of Posies even has some cute labels you can download.

Talk about a gift from the heart. How about a jar filled with hugs and warm words? Gifts you can make even provides some quotes to get you started. Who wouldn’t love a loving message every day for the year.

One of my favorites is this Miniature Golf in a Jar. How fun is this from Gunnysack? I just love this. A gift certificate for the local putt putt can be tied on.

I don’t know about you, but I want a fairy garden. I drool over them but have never found the time to devote to making one. Can someone gift me with this Fairy Garden Terrarium in a Jar please?

These are my top five finds for unique gifts in a jar. Each one can be personalize for the recipient and I promise, they will love it!
