For the next month we will be sharing a series of our favorite mason jar gift ideas you can make yourself! Because who doesn't love a handmade gift?
And everybody loves s’mores — both the act of making them and enjoying their gooey goodness. But does it seem like you never have all the ingredients on hand when your kids come clamoring to make some?
That’s why this mason jar gift idea is so perfect. It gives the gift of an experience and of time spent with loved ones.
The easiest option, or course, is to roast marshmallows in your fireplace. But if that’s not possible, you can always use a gas cooktop burner in a pinch or even a candle (just make sure it’s unscented and take basic safety precautions).
Teachers get a lot of ornaments, candles and other trinkets this time of year. This darling s’mores set is sure to be used and enjoyed, whether they have children, grandchildren or just want to enjoy a treat on a quiet wintry night at home.
You don’t need a gift bag or wrapping paper. That’s overkill — and produces extra waste during a time of year when our trash containers get filled way too quickly.
Instead, use one of these editable tag templates (choose from the smaller size or larger size) to print a gift tag on brown kraft paper and use a JarJackets jar protector sleeve to "wrap" your gift and make it extra special. Our jackets are made of environmentally friendly materials and are good to go in the dishwasher or microwave. Even better, they make it easy to take your smoothie, coffee or even your lunch on the road with you — in a way that produces no waste.
Use bakers twine to tie your kraft paper tag on and adorn the lid. Finish with a festive button and a bow. Perfection!

There are plenty of reasons to attempt to cut back on waste when grocery shopping, including reducing plastic pollution, shrinking your carbon footprint and simplifying your life.
But it’s not something that just magically happens.
To reduce waste, you have to have a well-planned strategy — and it starts with taking a long, hard look at what you actually need.
