Thanks to Pinterest I’m a little obsessed with creative ways to gift wrap and package gifts.  Last year I gave my aunt a manicure in a jar and this year I put together a winter survival kit for her.

Winter Survival Kit Gift in a Jar

In this jar I put some essential winter items to help her feet, hands and lips during the cold winter months along with some delicious hot chocolate.


Items in the jar:

~Socks  (I found these snowman socks at Target)

~Texting gloves (definitely something I can’t live without during the cold winter months)

~hand lotion

~hand sanitizer


~salted caramel hot chocolate mix (also found this at Target)

Place everything in a jar and add this gift tag I created.
