Nothing beats receiving a baked good on Christmas, so if you love to bake, you have to try giving out some banana bread in a jar this holiday season! Since you’ll be baking these delicious treats directly in the oven, Lina used these quality 8-ounce jam jars as they need to be sturdy enough to handle the heat.

Gift cards are one of the most convenient gifts to let someone know you’re thinking about them, but instead of giving a gift card by itself, why not go the extra mile and create a DIY Mason jar snow globe?!

A wide-mouth Mason jar will work best with a project like this. Putting these jar crafts together is super easy. Head to your local Target and check out their Bullseye Playground section as they have tons of little trees, faux snow, and more! Even Dollar Tree will have great options, too. Stick a mini ornament in there, and you’ve got yourself a DIY snow globe!

    My kids always give their teachers jars of assorted Hershey’s Kisses with a tag that says “Merry Kiss-mas”…although once they hit middle school they don’t like doing it anymore bc they say it would be weird (I get that!)! 😉
