Some cute mason jar gift ideas include a do-it-yourself gourmet pretzel kit, hot chocolate, and candy cane sugar scrub. Each of these ideas requires a few ingredients and some assembly.
A do-it-yourself gourmet pretzel kit requires three small mason jars and one medium-sized jar. Fill one of the small jars with a high-quality chocolate candy in milk chocolate, semi-sweet or white chocolate. Fill the medium-size jar with pretzels. In the remaining two jars, place decorative items, such as sprinkles, nuts or bits of crushed candy canes.
A mason jar of hot chocolate requires premium hot cocoa mix, chocolate chips, marshmallows and crushed candy canes. Add the hot chocolate mix first, and then layer the remaining ingredients, filling the jar. Create a festive tag with simple instructions to heat and enjoy the hot chocolate mix. Attaching the tag and a red or green bow adds a festive look.
Make candy cane sugar scrub by mixing white sugar, peppermint extract and coconut oil. Add food coloring, and layer the differently colored ingredients in the mason jars to give it a holiday feel. Attach a candy cane and a tag marked Candy Cane Sugar Scrub. Add a holiday bow as a finishing touch.
