Mason Jar Gift Sets

We just love mason jars. They are just so incredibly versatile and always look good. They look good stuffed with pretty much anything: food, flowers, utensils, pencil crayons, craft supplies etc. They also make the most adorable gift sets! Mason jars are really inexpensive and you can even find them at dollar stores.

Tip! Adding a pretty piece of fabric, ribbon and gift tag makes the gift set extra cute!

Here are some of the cutest mason jar gift sets:
