If you have a large family, or lots of friends to purchase gifts for this year, you may want to consider making some homemade gifts.
Homemade gifts are a great way to stay on budget and they also bring a personal, heartfelt touch to the recipient. Mason jars make a great budget friendly gift container and if you are like me, you already have a ton of them laying around the house. The sky is the limit with how creative you can be with stuffing your mason jars and turning them into gifts. They are also simple for children to put together.
There are traditional cookie and drink mix gifts in mason jars, but there are also more creative and unique ideas as well!
