mason jar gift - homemade nutella

We’ll be honest: Of all the Mason jar gifts a person could make, homemade Nutella is the one that makes our heart skip a beat.

There is something so decadent — and fun — about recreating this traditional European treat at home and packaging it up to surprise family, friends or neighbors. Will you save money? Probably not.

But you’ll have a ball making this — and we think it’s even more delicious than the original.

 Sleeves for Mason Jar Gifts!

Level up your mason jar gifts with our new mason jar sleeves for 4oz jars! This adorable new sleeve fits the 4oz size and comes in packs of 6. They insulate what's stored inside, while also protecting them from breakage.  A unique way to gift your homemade Nutella and share with friends & neighbors! 

Homemade Nutella - The Perfect Mason Jar Gift Idea

This homemade Nutella recipe is courtesy of Little Spice Jar. You’ll need the following:

8 ounces of hazelnuts or filberts
½ Teaspoon vanilla
¼ Teaspoon salt
1/3 to ½ Cup powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons coco powder
6 ounces semisweet chocolate (bars work best)
1 Tablespoon of a nut/seed oil such as walnut or sunflower. Coconut oil or vegetable oil will work in a pinch.

Google the above phrase and you’ll find a slew of beautifully decorated Mason jars that definitely don’t need wrapping paper.

To make your own gift worthy of Pinterest, take your Nutella-filled jars and use a bit of festive twine to attach a small wooden spoon and a sticker label on the top. 

You can also use one of these "Handmade with Love" sticker templates to make a homemade gift tag. These are designed to be used with Avery 2" x 2" round stickers (for wide mouth jars) and 1.5" x 1.5" round stickers (regular mouth jars).

Downloadable Printable "Homemade with Love" Sticker Templates - 1.5" x 1.5" round and 2" round sizes.

To make your gift extra special, use JarJackets to “wrap” your Mason jars. Sure, they look cute, but they also protect the glass from bumps and slips. And when the Nutella is all gone, the jelly jars and JarJackets make the perfect combo for taking soup, pasta or salads to work (JarJackets are dishwasher and microwave safe). 

Even better, JarJackets are 100 percent non-toxic and made from earth-friendly materials.
