We’ve all done it. We’ve all fallen prey to the idea that since there are such great deals during the holiday season we must spend money. Don’t get me wrong, I love an awesome deal as much as the next gal, but sometimes you don’t have to spend money to get a great gift. In fact, some of the best gifts come straight from the heart and don’t cost much of anything. There’s a reason for the saying “it’s the thought that counts.” To help you save money during the holiday seasons and still give great, heartfelt gifts, I’ve put together several DIY gifts in a jar Mason jar recipes.
DIY gifts in a jar are really wonderful gifts. They’re cute, unique, and pretty much perfect for anyone on your list. Plus, my Mason jar recipes are inexpensive, easy to put together, and (if I do say so myself) delicious.
This is just one of 12 DIY gifts in a jar you’ll find on FreebieFindingMom.com for the 2016 holiday season. I’ve put together a sleigh full of DIY gifts in a jar and Mason jar recipes in order to inspire you to give frugal, fun, heartfelt, and homemade presents this year. The first of the DIY gifts in a jar is a Mason jar recipe for ooey gooey chocolatey cookies made even more irresistible by the addition of Reese’s Pieces. A word of warning, try not to eat all the Reses’s Pieces before you’ve made your DIY gift in a jar!

12 Days of DIY Gifts in a Jar: Reese’s Pieces Cookies in a Jar
1. Add the box of chocolate cake mix to the wide mouth Mason jar. Tap the jar a few times on the counter to get the cake mix to settle.
2. Slowly pour in the Reese’s Pieces Mini Baking Bits. You may need to tap the jar again a few times to get them all to fit.
3. Print this gift tag and secure it to the side of the jar with double-sided tape. I added a small piece of brown paper (old grocery bag) to the back of my label and taped both onto the jar. You could also use a single hole punch and secure the label with twine.
This DIY gift in a jar Mason jar recipe only requires the addition of two other ingredients (eggs and vegetable oil) to make mouth watering chocolate peanut butter cookies. Maybe if you’re really nice the person you gave it to will invite you over to sample the finished product! Yum!
