Gifts In A Jar . . . Simple, Inexpensive, and Fun!

I originally planned on this post being about gift BASKET ideas but the more I thought about it, the more I decided I was sick of baskets. Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE baskets! I probably have WAY too many of them around my house. But GIFT baskets have been done every possible way I could think of so I decided to think outside of the basket. 🙂

It didn’t take long before my thoughts turned to JARS! I think I love jars ALMOST as much as I love baskets. Particularly these versatile and inexpensive ones you can almost always find at your local Walmart. (These were $9.99 and $7.99 respectively.) I use them as containers for my homemade laundry detergent, flour, sugar, as a vase for flowers, I’ve even used them as a “punch bowl.”

Gifts In A Jar

Today, however, I am using them as a way to give simple, creative, and inexpensive gifts for lots of different people on your list! I initially was going to do just a few different ideas, but as I so often do, I took the idea a bit too far. Oh well. Hopefully my over-achiever tendencies will result in some added inspiration for someone. 🙂

“Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas?

Red and green are so predictable this time of year! 🙂 Add a little pizazz to the holiday with a splash of orange! Orange is such a happy color! This gift in a jar is limited only by your imagination (and the selection of orange items you can come up with.)

“Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas? II

I couldn’t resist creating this more “literal” interpretation of the “Orange” You Glad It’s Christmas theme. It doesn’t get much easier than dumping a bag of clementines into a jar and adding some twine. Beats giving a “box” of oranges (like I have many times before!)

Guy Food In A Jar

Guys are such simple creatures. Don’t believe me? Be sure to read my nephew & business partner Scott’s post about Gift Ideas for Guys. With the “simple” thing in mind, I added bottles of soda, queso, beef jerky, and a candy bar to a jar and called it good. I know any of MY guys would love it!

T.L.C. In A Jar

It never fails that someone in our house is sick over Christmas. Germs are running rampant, we are all stuck indoors, and stress levels are through the roof. Perfect storm for a “bug” to strike. This jar would be a welcome gift for anyone feeling under the weather.

Ice Cream Party In A Jar

It’s hard to think of anyone who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive an ice cream party in a jar! After I had taken the pictures for this I came up with the idea of adding a tag that says “Just Add Ice Cream.” Cute huh? 🙂

Cookie Decorating In A Jar

Do a family on your list a favor and give them a ready-made family activity in a jar! Kids love decorating cookies ANY time, but especially at Christmas. Save Mom & Dad the work of having to make cookies from scratch. They have enough to do this time of year! 🙂

List of 8 Valentine’s Day Ideas for Boyfriend That Neither of You Will Ever Forget to Make the Day Special

Here is a list of gift ideas that will make this night special. Just make sure that you will prepare in time so you won’t have to rush things.

Get him a box of… money

Let’s face it: who wouldn’t like to get a box of money for Valentine’s Day? For this one of the Valentine’s gift ideas for him you should get a box of chocolate (yes, you can eat the chocolate).

Metal box filled with coins

Fill the little paper baskets with different kinds of money. It is best if you get different currencies if you can; maybe you have some left from your last trip. This is a very good idea because he would expect to get chocolate and you will manage to surprise him. In the same time it will remind him of the trips you had together and he might use his gift to invite you out.

Organize the perfect movie night

You might think that there is nothing special about a movie night, but it is up to you to make it memorable. The best thing about this one of the Valentine’s Day ideas is that you will have the gift and date night wrapped in the same package.

Popcorns in a white bowl

Pick out a classic rom-com, get some snacks, prepare some popcorn, and a menu for takeout. You could also order pizza to arrive right on time. This isn’t one of the expensive Valentine’s ideas for him, but you can be sure he will be happy with it. Just don’t forget about his favorite snacks. You could pack everything in a gift basket to make things even more interesting for him.

Offer him a cupcake bouquet

Usually men offer women a bouquet for Valentine’s Day. However, you could also offer him one, made of cupcakes. This one of the Valentine’s gift ideas only works if you can prepare the cupcakes at home. Store-bought cupcakes just aren’t the same.

Two cupcakes made of paper

Plus, nothing beats giving him something you prepared, even if they’re not perfect. If you are too handy in the kitchen, you should look for a simple recipe that you simply can’t go wrong with. He will appreciate this one of the Valentine’s ideas for boyfriend even if he doesn’t like sweets simply because you worked with it.

Personalized keychain

If you don’t mind being a bit cheesy with your Valentine’s Day ideas for him, you might want to consider getting him a personalized keychain. It could say something like you love him or simply the date you gave it to him. If you wish to take it a notch further, you could get matching keychains.

Pink key on a keychain

For instance, there are those that have a message if you read the messages on the two keychains together. There are also those in the shape of two broken hearts that make a whole when put together. However, you have to make sure he is ready for such mushy gifts.

Get him a special bracelet

In case you would like to send a message with your Valentine’s craft ideas, you could be thinking about a bracelet made of leather with the infinity symbol on it. This gift is suitable for the couples who have been together for quite some time now.

Black and silver bracelet

Otherwise the infinity symbol could scare him off and certainly you don’t want that. Even if you’re not going to be together forever, it is a nice gift and nice symbol and he will be able to wear it for a long time. Although it may not be the most romantic gift, for sure it’s practical.

Toiletry bag

Again, if you’re looking for practical Valentine’s gift ideas for boyfriend, nothing beats offering a toiletries bag. You might think it’s too trivial, but in case he has to travel a lot, you can be sure he will appreciate it.

Brown retro bag

This gift may also be a peace offering in case you have been nagging him about his traveling. There are some things in a relationship you can’t fight; you simply have to embrace them and him traveling for his job is one of these things. However, if he’s traveling for other reasons, that is an entirely different story.

Couple’s pampering

You might think that pampering is only for women, but the truth is that men also like to be pampered from time to time. When thinking about Valentine ’s Day gift for him, you should consider spending a day with him at a spa.

Black stones for spa

You could book a couple’s massage and other pampering services that you can both enjoy. You could also spend some time in the Jacuzzi and then hit the sauna. Believe it or not, such relaxing activities will only make the bond between you two even stronger.

Gadgets

If there is one Valentine gift idea for him that you simply can’t go wrong with, it’s getting him a new gadget. In case he likes technology, you can be sure that you’re on the right path. You could buy him a new smartphone, MP3 player, MP4 player, iPod, iPad or anything else that he can “play” with. For sure there is something that he had his heart set on but never brought himself to actually buying.

It’s not difficult to find Valentine’s gifts ideas for him; the difficult part comes when you actually have to decide what to get him. In this case you have to put yourself in his shoes and try to imagine what he would like to get (without adding any hidden, mean messages to the gift).

A List of Inexpensive Gift Ideas for Him that Won’t Break the Bank, But Won’t Look Cheap Either for Special Occasions

Who cares if you get him something cheap if he likes it? Looking cheap need not be one of your worries, but saving money on gifts should be. Here is how to get him what he wants without breaking the bank.

Create a special photo frame

One of the best gift ideas for boyfriend is to make them a special photo frame. In case you have been together for some time now, for sure you have some pictures together. Print them out and find (or make) a wooden frame, as simple as you can.

photo frame with a photo of a couple

Attach four strings to it at a distance that will allow you to attach the pictures to the strings without them covering each other. Find some wooden clothespins and use them to secure the pictures to the strings. Most probably you will have a frame with a dark color scheme, so it might be a good idea to print the pictures in black and white. Naturally you could also paint the frame to make it look more cheerful.

You could give coupons

There are numerous gift ideas for him that you could be thinking about and one of the cheapest is to give coupons or vouchers. Basically, you don’t need any money for this gift. You could make some coupons for backrubs, hugs, kisses, or even breakfast in bed.

a vintage coupon

In order to make the whole thing look more official, you could make the coupons on your computer and print them out. Think of these as “I owe you” cards that your boyfriend can redeem anytime they’d like. Just think about what he likes. As an example, you could make a coupon for a homemade dinner that he’d appreciate.

Offer some pampering

In case you have some massage skills, you could be thinking about this one of the cheap gift ideas. Men are often reluctant when it comes to pampering, but once you get started, they’ll wish you never stopped. Think about massages with aromatic oils, peppermint foot scrub, and home pedicure.

towels, scented candles and flowers

If he doesn’t mind, you could also apply a face mask. Just make sure that the products you use don’t have a girlie smell (most men don’t like to smell like fruits and flowers). Naturally this idea only works if you already have the products you are going to use and you don’t have to spend any money on them.

Survival kit for work

When looking for things guys like for sure you will be able to come up with a few. If you’d like the gift to have a funny side too, think about offering a work survival kit. Pack him his favorite coffee, some homemade muffins or cookies and a pocket joke book.

bowl with food

If you have some money left in your budget, you could also order him and his colleagues some pizza that they like. (The truth is that guys like to show off with their girlfriends and such an occasion will leave their colleagues amazed). After work you should surprise him with a picnic in your living room. Prepare some sandwiches and some dessert. You can be sure that it will be a day he won’t forget.

Exploding love box

In your search for unique gift ideas it is impossible not to come over the exploding love box. This is something you can make at home and it won’t cost you a dime. You just need some pictures with the two of you, some cardboard paper, scissors, glue and markers.

box with a heart on it

Basically you will make a box with several slides inside that flip out when he opens the box. Glue the pictures on the slides and make love notes on them. The best thing about the gift is that it is two surprises in one. He will be surprised when he opens the box and the slides flip out and he will be surprised to read your notes. This is something that will keep him busy for a while.

Take him to the movies

It is time for the movies to be your treat. One of the things guys want is to see their favorite movie with their girlfriend. Make sure that you are prepared and buy some candy, popcorn, soda and everything else you think they might like.

crowded theatre

You should also let him pick the movie (just this once) and don’t say anything about how violent or how many cars it has. Who knows? You might even enjoy it. Even if action movies aren’t your favorite genre, you will love spending time with him and he will really appreciate that you’re doing this for him.

If he travels a lot that will come in handy, plus, every time he looks at the watch he will think of you, and don’t you think that, especially if it is a gift for a long distance boyfriend, it is perfect? Or splurge a bit and buy him a nice leather wallet? If he’s not the wallet type (many men aren’t) then how about a shoulder bag? Just make sure you hit the spot, and that he likes it.

He is a hedonist

Think of what he enjoys in

Best boyfriend gifts are about making him happy and feel like you really know him. That will bring you closer. So, if you still don’t know, ask around a bit what kind of books he prefers. Does he maybe have a favorite author? Find out, and buy him an entire set or collection. He’ll cherish it like a fat kid loves cake.

He is the high-tech guy

Boys will be boys

If you have a gadget know-it-all in the house then don’t think no more. Don’t google through all the different boyfriend gift ideas that don’t make sense at all. If he loves technology, set out for a shopping spree that will be all about computers, games, and high tech gadgets. You might not really be into it, but the important thing is that he loves it. Sometimes cute gift ideas for a boyfriend are not ‘cute’ according to girl standards, but they are according to the men’s.

He is the handy man

Treat him with tools

Whether you are thinking about gifts for a long distance boyfriend or you need any gift ideas for a boyfriend, stay tuned.

Just imagine this situation: you are standing in the middle of a crowded store absolutely baffled because your boyfriend asked you two hours before a big party to go and find a present for his cousin who is a huge tree hugger. You know that those people are all for eco-friendly stuff and so, but you have never ever been in a situation to buy such person something, nor do you have any idea what would such person want for her birthday. You have no idea where to find green gifts, and you can’t even remember if you have anywhere seen a tag saying eco-friendly gifts. Not really a fun shopping situation, isn’t it? Nor would you like to find yourself in one of that. However, there is a bunch of possibilities for getting an eco-friendly gift, no matter what the occasion is: birthday, wedding, Christmas, and so on.

There is actually a whole bunch of small shops and online stores selling eco-friendly clothes, and accessories. You can find really cute jewelry made of recycled materials. And if you’re not sure if the person you are buying the gift for is a jewelry fan, or you don’t feel close enough to buy her some clothes, there are entire lines of organic cosmetic products, and those usually come in pretty pastel baskets which are usually filled with nicely smelling bubble baths, bath salts, and all kinds of lotions which are really good and nurturizing for your skin, and also have no bad effect on your environment.

Leave them speechless on their birthday with the perfect gift

If your bestie’s birthday is in question, that’s a piece of cake. You are most likely the one who knows her better than any other person in the world, so you probably know her style, what are her birthday dos and don’ts, and there is hardly any chance that you won’t have any idea which gift would make her jump around the room in excitement. All that is up to you is to figure whether you can afford it on your own, or should you find another person or a group of friends to chip in with you.
On the other hand, if you are buying a present for someone you don’t know so well, you’ll probably need an approach different from intuition. If at first you’re lacking birthday gift ideas, start paying more attention what they are talking about. Focus on their interests, and the topics they currently talk about most. Especially if they talk about planning a party, you’ll might, get them talking, they’ll might reveal some interesting stuff about last year presents. Also, as they are probably on your Facebook friend list, or you follow them on Twitter or Pinterest, in that case: scroll down! Go through their profile and find out what sort of things they like. Maybe you’ll even find something like picture of ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ mug they linked saying ‘I SO WANT THIS’. And there you go! Of course, it won’t always be that easy, but truth be told: social networks are really handy in this kind of situations.

I now pronounce you a perfect wedding gift

For some people buying wedding gifts is one hell of a trouble. They somehow get stuck on it and don’t how to pick the right one. But actually, it’s not all that bad. And usually you don’t need any wedding gift ideas. What you need to do is decide on your budget for the gift. And if the couple you should buy the wedding gift for has registered in some store, find out which store it is and visit it, or check out their online store if they have one.
SPECIAL TIP: When making a decision about your budget, bear in mind two things – how close are you to the couple-to-be and how much you can afford. You must be super happy about your bestie getting married, but that doesn’t mean that you have to get a bank loan to buy her a gift. If, however, you really want to buy her something that is out of your range, pair up with someone, or even get her a group gift.
If the couple hasn’t made any registration, or everything you can afford is already off the list, try to find something they’ll find useful. Most couples forget to put on their list those tidbits that are for everyday use: salt and pepper shakers, matching towels, or set of napkins. Something that almost everyone forgets is a set of photo frames: it’s not a necessity, but after all the turmoil about the wedding is over, they will find it great to have something to frame those incredible memories. And what is in it for you: you can find them at any price that fits you.

Be careful with your budget, always pay attention that it is age appropriate (this is important!), and take a look around for hints, and the right gift idea will come along. You just need to not lose your hope, because you can find what you’re looking for, be it an eco-friendly gift, birthday, or a wedding gift.
