Christmas Cookie Mason Jar Gifts

It's getting close to that time of year again! I used to start buying Christmas gifts in the summer, but I tend to put it off much longer these days. I've always thought the best gifts are the ones you make yourself. Last year I made everyone Christmas Cookie Mason Jar Gifts.

I started selling these in my shop last year due to the many requests I had over the years to develop this product. It's costly to buy pre-made cookie jars since the shipping is so high. And while it's more fun to make your own jars, many people aren't able to create the custom labels and hang tags. So I made these DIY cookie jar kits.

Each DIY Mason Cookie Jar Kit in my shop includes a cookie recipe and materials to make 12 of your own quart mason jar gifts. You get:
1 - Cookie recipe card with instructions on how to layer ingredients in jar
12 - 6" Christmas cloth toppers
12 - 2.5" round cookie labels for front of jars
12- gift hang tags with baking directions
12 - pre-cut ribbons
1 - shopping list for all the ingredients you need to purchase.

There are 4 cookie recipes to choose from: Candy Chip, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Oatmeal.

Do you want to make mason jar gifts using your own cookie recipe? No problem! I can do custom cookie jar decorations with your baking directions and recipe name on the tags and labels. Custom mason jar gift sets also include cloth toppers and ribbons.

A Double Chocolate Brownie recipe is also available for pint jars.

All of the cookie recipes are fantastic. The peanut butter recipe is probably my favorite because it calls for triple peanuts (peanuts, peanut butter, and peanut butter chips).  The brownie recipe is rich and dense but not overly sweet. These are great gifts for kids to make for grandparents and teachers too!


  1. What a wonderful holiday gift idea, nothing is better than homemade goodies that are canned or packaged with love. The labels are perfect, they are so festive.
