What You Need

Today I’ve got a thoughtful gift idea that you can put together yourself for very little cost. It’s perfect for friends, neighbors, teachers, bakers, and hostess gifts.

Here’s what you need to put this gift together (this is just a guideline, go with whatever you have on hand or easily accessible):

  • A glass or plastic mason-type jar  (I used this one from IKEA). Or you could even use a cellophane or other type of gift bag.
  • Cookie Cutters (plastic or metal, and as many as you like)
  • Printable recipe tag. You can download the colorful recipe card I shared last week and write your own favorite recipe, or use the cookie recipes that you can download at the end of this post.

How to Assemble the Gift Jars

First, gather up all of the items you need and decide which recipe you want to include. It can be anything from a simple, handwritten note, to these cute chalkboard printouts.

  1. Fill the jar or bag with the cookie cutters.
  2. Glue the downloadable recipe card into the jar and wrap with ribbon or twine. Be sure to attach a pretty gift tag and sign your name!

Depending on where you purchase them (and how many you want to include), the cookie cutters will run you anywhere from a few dollars, to $15. This set on Amazon is under $10. This would be an adorable gift for friends, neighbors, or even colleagues!

Or you could always just frame the chalkboard recipe signs and display them in your kitchen! They add a little touch of whimsy, and aren’t just for Christmas!

You can download the full set that contains both signs in 8×10 and 4×5 (gift tag) sizes. I suggest printing on cardstock for best results. The sign could even be blown up to a 16×20 size and framed, too (printed at Office Depot for under $5!)
