Homemade gift ideas: cookies in a jar

I’m a huge fan of most sweet things and I love holiday baking. I like to give baked goods for gifts, but it can be a challenge to not only store and deliver the items without them going bad, but it’s also difficult to make sure it’s different every year.

In the past when I wanted to give a friend a few cookies it ended up looking more thoughtless than tasteful on a paper plate or tossed into whatever random plastic container I could find. But this year I will be giving holiday cookies in jars that can be reused. This year seems to be the year of the canning jar for myself and others, but they sure are versatile and stylish.

The best part of these jars? Even when the cookies are long gone the jar can be reused by the recipient in hundreds of ways or regifted with their own baked goods.
