I’m always looking for low cost, simple gift ideas for neighbors, friends, and even some family members. I love creating edible gift ideas I can give in a jar. They’re always a hit. Here are three of my favorite gift in a jar recipes to give. These recipes also include a printable version so the person you gift it to can make their own if they decide they want more.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar Recipe
These cookies always remind me of my mom’s favorite homemade cookie recipe! Who doesn’t love old fashioned oatmeal chocolate chip cookies? Layer the jar ingredients into a quart jar, then bake up a batch to take along. Give your friends and neighbors a jar of ingredients to make their own, and some already baked cookies so they know what they’re getting.
