Need a Mother’s Day gift idea?
Consider creating mom or grandma a jar filled with gifts as a fun surprise. Much like a gift basket, you can fill it up with personalized items she’d enjoy as a thoughtful way to say Happy Mother’s Day – plus, we’ve even got free printable gift tags for you!
You can make jars for all the special moms in your life. And when she’s done, mom can use these pretty storage jars all year long!
Grab some jars and let’s make a cute gift!
My favorite jars to make these types of gifts are the Anchor Hocking Heritage jars from Walmart. They’re well made, affordable, and super convenient to have around the house. The large 2-gallon glass jars are just $15 in-store, and there are other small and medium-sized varieties also, like the 1/2 gallon also pictured (around $7 in my store).
Hip Tip: HomeGoods and Target are also good spots to check for jars, as well as Dollar Tree (for a smaller Mason jar gift). You can also re-purpose a pretty jar you have around the house, or check your thrift store.
Then simply print the FREE Mother’s Day gift tags on card stock paper and attach to your jars with decorative ribbon or string. I’ve included multiple sized tags so you can use them on different sizes of jars.
It’s also worth mentioning that these tags would make a pretty gift topper or serve as a tag for any other gift you are planning for on Mother’s Day!
Here are 3 unique gifts in a jar ideas for mom!
I filled one jar with all kinds of fun ways for mom to pamper herself, such as different beauty and relaxation products and things I know she’ll enjoy! Another jar has summer essentials like a beach towel, sunglasses, flip flops, and sunscreen. Finally, the last jar has a selection of pretty nail polish and supplies for the perfect manicure.
I used gift basket filling at the bottom of each jar, but that is definitely optional.

I love that you can personalize this gift for mom at lots of different price points according to your budget. I’d also consider including some priceless items like a drawing from the kids, a special small framed photo, or photo magnets. Or even write down reasons why you love your mom/grandma on pieces of paper, just like we did with these DIY Kindness Jars!
