The first week of May is Teacher Appreciation Week, and this year we’ve come prepared. Jar some happiness with these homemade mason jar gift ideas to show your child’s teacher you care! 


Guide your children as they decorate their teachers’ mason jars with glitter, paint, buttons and ribbon before stuffing them. The personal touch will mean the world to that special someone!

Indulgence in a Jar

Stuff With:

• Chocolate truffles

• Nail polish or a warm pair of socks

• Small nail kit

• Bath salt

• Lotion

Add any other products you feel are great for an indulgent night in, or take it a step further by throwing in a voucher for a
free massage or movie theatre coupon. Enjoying popcorn these days is definitely an indulgence!

Revival in a Jar

Stuff With:

• Energy bar

• Several packets of instant coffee

• Packet of peanuts

• Dried fruit

Help your favorite teacher survive the day with these little treats. For a healthier option, exchange the instant coffee for tea bags.

Relief in a Jar

Stuff With:

• Stain removal pen

• Stress ball

• Wrinkle release spray

• Cleansing towelettes

• Mints

Give the gift of stress relief for those little bumps in the road during busy days with kids. For more relief, throw in an iTunes gift card. They say that music soothes the savage beast, and maybe it’ll soothe a stressed one too!
