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.

    Just a comment about the email. It’s so light that it’s hard to read. Is it possible you can choose a darker color or bold font, or something? Thank you! I enjoy the emails and when I’m able to craft again I look forward to revisiting them all!

  4. I’m planning on making these for Christmas. The jars that I purchased look similar but don’t fit everything. Where did you buy your jars.
