Guys – can you believe we are getting so close to summer break? And only a few short weeks left until school lets out – that means TEACHER GIFTS will need to happen soon! If you’re scrambling for something new – here’s a list that might help you out….
Mason Jars are handy little ways to hold all sorts of things – especially giftable goods from your kitchen, or other small treasures. From sewing kits, to spa supplies, to a chic planter – these Mason Jar gift ideas will give you a few easy options!

3. Hot Chocolate Mix
Layer ingredients in a pretty way with marshmallows and mini chocolate chips – handy and yummy! Use a smaller mason jar for this recipe or double it for a bigger one.

4. Homemade Salsa
This easy summer salsa recipe is my absolute favorite – and it uses *canned* tomatoes – which REALLY cuts down on the work!
5. Homemade Granola
My friend Shawna made this for me last year – and it was sooooo good. (The recipe had almonds in it and looked a lot like this one) I munched on it for breakfast several times. A very cool idea for the more “granola” folks on your list!
6. Cookies in a Jar
If you’re giving this to a teacher, a cute note for this would be “Thanks for making me a Smart Cookie!” And if you’re REALLY pressed for time – check out our Lazy Girl’s Cookies in a Jar
7. Spiced Nuts in a Jar
My father in law always says he’s never met a nut he didn’t like – and that is the kind of person who deserves a jar of awesome nuts. Get the recipe here for Sweet & Spicy Nuts.
