Homemade Gifts in a Jar – 9 Easy Mason Jar Recipes (DIY Gifts for Foodies Week) {Two Healthy Kitchens}

Mason jar recipes are always a favorite!

They’re really fun and easy to make, so pretty to give, and full of delicious possibilities for foods that can be whipped together at a moment’s notice! Even better, you can make lots of them all at once in big batches, so they’re an ideal solution for quickly conquering that looming gift list!

Tie up your “gifts in a jar” with some colorful ribbon and then attach the simple directions for finishing each recipe, and you’ve got a really personal homemade gift … kinda like a little hug in jar!

Bonus for busy people: you can also make extras of these mason jar recipes for yourself! Store them in your pantry for quick meals and snacks at a moment’s notice. (And just imagine how cute your pantry shelves will look, with these Mason jar recipes all lined up in tidy rows – look out, Martha Stewart!)

Our one problem in putting this post together for you, though, was that, while there are lots and lots of “gifts in a jar” recipe ideas out there, not very many of them met our THK standards for nutrition. You know us – we’re always looking for the perfect crossroads where healthfulness and deliciousness meet!

Well, after lots of research, we’re just thrilled with the final line-up of recipes we’ve got for you today! These recipes are not only gorgeous, all nestled into their little jars, but they’re also healthy, too – truly gifts you can feel good about giving!

And if all this isn’t enough inspiration for wonderful, sure-to-be-appreciated homemade gifts, check out our other DIY gift ideas, too! From homemade seasonings and spice blends, to beautiful little herb garden projects, and lots of yummy homemade treats that are perfect for sharing … we’ve got a whole week of posts brimming with fantastic ideas for you!
