Simple Neighbor Gift for Christmas

I know…we have not even had Thanksgiving yet. BUT for those of us who like to craft and create, we need a bit of a head start on the Christmas season to get all of our gifts and decor done. Our family loves a handmade Christmas and that includes neighbor gifts. My children enjoy helping me put them together and then delivering them on our street.

This year, I decided to jump on the mason jar trend and create a fun little mason jar neighbor gift I know they will enjoy. I even joined an amazing group of bloggers who each created their own mason jar gift idea so be sure to go all the way to the end of this post to see all the ideas and a great giveaway!  These little mason jar Sugar Cookie Mix Kits are a wonderful and inexpensive idea for neighbors, friends, family, or even teachers.


I love the crisp red and white!

So here are the supplies you will need:{affilaite links}

Of course, you will also need the dry mix recipe that you will fill the mason jar with. This recipe is for one mason jar so you will need to increase the amounts based on how many gifts you plan on making.


Sugar Cookie Dry Mix Recipe

1 cup sugar

2 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

Mix together and pour into quart sized mason jar. 



Wrap the mason jar with the kitchen towel and tie with the fabric ribbon. Fill the plastic light bulb ornaments about 3/4 full {not too heavy} and tie them on with the baker’s twine. A perfect accent for the gift!


Download and print off the Sugar Cookie Mix Recipe Cards on heavy white cardstock. Punch a hole in the corner and tie on to the jar with more baker’s twine. I created the free, downloadable printable with 4 recipes per piece of cardstock.

All done and cute and practical too! 


Can’t you just smell the sweet sugar cookies now? Yum!

    Hi Bonnie…I love this idea! The whole idea is FAB, but the sprinkle filled ornaments just takes it over the top! Guess I know what my neighbors and my son’s teachers are getting this year!! Thanks for helping to check that ‘to do’ off of my list.

    Have a great day, Lynn
