Gift Idea using Candy and a Mason Jar

This has to be the simplest gift idea I have seen in a while! Give the gift of sweetness with peppermints in a mason jar and you won’t regret it!

This would be perfect to give out at the office or keep around for last minute gifts you might need. It will take you all of five minutes to put this together and it’s easy on your budget!


All you need is:

  • Wrapped peppermints
  • Ribbon or string

And that is it. Really, it’s that easy!

I jazzed mine up with free printable’s I found.

Free Mason Jar Peppermint Lid Printable

I found this one at One Creative Mommy. I also used this lid printable on other project I did, so I was very happy to use it for something else peppermint themed, it’s too cute not to! You can see the other project I used this lid printable here.

Mason Jar Printable Gift Tag

And once I had the top, I just needed a cute gift tag, which I found at Moms by Heart! I love how it looks! Not too busy, but just right!

I am very happy with the end result and can’t wait to start giving them out! I also like that I could adapt this to give as a gift on any holiday, not just Christmas!
