Inexpensive Mason Jar Gift Ideas!

By: K.H. Smith


I Love Mason Jar Gifts!  I mean who doesn’t? They are inexpensive to make, which is great for staying under budget at the holidays.  And the presents you can make are useful!  I love to give them as well as receive them.  I enjoy using mason jars for teachers gifts, gift exchanges, hostess gifts, for some of my Aunts and Uncles who have everything, and for the hard to buy for minimalists who want nothing.  I have compiled a few Pinterest ideas into one place to help me and you get those DIY gift-giving juices flowing.
