I have really fallen behind in my Christmas gift making. I can't believe that I haven't even started making them. This year I decided to make gift in a jar. I haven't even purchased the mason jars yet. I am making a jar of the dry ingredients of each persons favorite food or dessert. They then can add the wet ingredients. I decorate each jar and add a little gift that pertains to the person. Attached to the jar will be the recipe for the item so they can add the ingredients that are not in the jar. People seem to love getting this gift. I hope they do this year. Have you started thinking about Christmas yet?

Baking bread for someone is a wonderful gift from the heart. Anyone would love it.

A lot of people are last minute buyers. I can't seem to wait until the last minute.

@HazySue Some people are hard to buy for especially if they have everything.

@Tina30219 that is so true. I bet they don't have a gift in a jar.

Christmas season unofficially begins on September 1 here in the Philippines so yes, it has been on my mind but I just haven't given it much thought. Those mason jar gifts are a wonderful idea.

Great idea. I'll start as soon as my buddies ask, they know I will give them my time but I always tell them they need to let me know when it's convenient for them so when they call to tell me to show up I will.

I like making my own Christmas gifts. I try to come up with a different idea each year.

Not at all. I have thought of the month of December and where we will be traveling but not really about gift giving.

I think about it but haven't done anything yet. Your idea of gifts in a jar is great and I'm sure each person will appreciate his/her gift.
