DIY Gifts in a Jar for the Holidays

I love the holidays, but could do without the shopping part of it. If I could skip the part where I have to brave the crowds at the mall and spend hours surfing the internet for deals, and go straight to the gift wrapping, the whole season would be so much more bearable.

If you're feel the same way, then this should appeal to you: DIY gifts in a jar. This year, why not purchase a bunch of jars or bottles and put together some homemade presents? It's a fun thing to do, and there's nothing more special than a homemade gift. They make great presents for teachers, neighbors and other important people in your life.
