12 Days of Last Minute Christmas Gifts: Candy-filled Mason Jars

Totally last minute, sure, but also totally sweet.

We present 12 days of last minute gift ideas. Check back each day for new, increasingly desperate gift ideas as Christmas day draws closer and closer.

On the first day of Christmas…

Simple DIY projects often make for the most thoughtful gifts for your friends and family. Purchase some seriously cute mason jars (they have them everywhere from True Value to H&M Home) then get creative by filling them up with an assortment of sweet treats—chocolates, jellybeans, peppermint sticks, even homemade goodies.

Customize the sweets based on the receiver’s snacking personality and decorate the jar with ribbons, tinsel, or even little reindeer antlers. It’s quick, easy, presentable, but also super functional. I promise you, they’ll keep that Mason Jar forever and remember you every time they see it.
