Christmas giftcard jars

11.26.2014


With the twins arriving just weeks away, I wanted to have as much Christmas preparation done as possible. One of my items on my to-do list are holiday gifts for Austin's preschool teachers. They really do so much for all the kids. Our little boy has really thrived and shined ever since he's been there. I can tell he loves his teachers and the school. Sometimes, I can't get him to leave at pick up. As a thank you, I wanted to give the teachers something that will be useful and what's more useful than a Target giftcard? To add a personal touch to it, I placed them in glass jars filled with chocolates, a couple of Christmas ornaments, and tied it with a handmade tag.








Everything was purchased at Target for approximately $15 not including the giftcards. Here's how to make your own.

giftcard jars

ingredients:
  • 3 glass jars

  • ribbon
directions:
  1. fill bottom of jar with a small handful of chocolates
  2. place giftcard and ornaments inside
  3. fill the rest of the jar with the remaining chocolates
  4. place lid on the jar and wrap tie ribbon and tag around the lid
