Roundup by Underground Crafter

21 Handmade Mason Jar Gift Ideas via Underground Crafter | This roundup includes great ideas for the winter holidays, including jar mix recipes, mason jar decorations, and crochet mason jar cozies!But first, what should you put inside the mason jar?

Obviously, the recipes call for filling the mason jar with ingredients and some of the decorative patterns and tutorials include suggestions for what to include in the mason jar. But, if you need more gift ideas for what to include inside your mason jar, here are some of my suggestions. Since mason jars come in different sizes, not everything on this list will fit into every mason jar, but it’s a start! The links will take you to Amazon and all of the items I’ve linked are Prime-shipping eligible, so they make great components to last-minute gifts. Prime membership is $99 a year and includes free two-day shipping with no minimum order, a streaming video library, borrowing privileges for Kindle ebooks, and more. I’ve been a member for years and you can get a 30-day free trial here.

Really, anything smallish that can be rolled or stuffed into a jar will do!
