Posted on:


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so we’ve decided to put together some inspirational gift and home décor ideas for all of those who like to get creative. Whether it’s your other half or a friend, it’s nice to give a little ‘I’m thinking about you’ present and show your love :)


Go Vintage


You’ve got to love this set of vintage inspired mason jars, they are just so pretty! You simply need to cut a piece of vintage paper, wrap it around your jar, cut two heart shapes, glue this sheet to your jar and voilà – just add acandle! Full tutorial here



Did anyone say sweets?


On Valentine’s Day you simply can’t go wrong with a beautifully presented jar with a selection of sweets in it. You can really let your creativity flow with this idea mixing and matching sweets, stickers and wrapping paper. Full tutorial here





Make it personal


Gifts in a jar are so much fun! Get inspiration from these Pampering In A Jar, Refreshment In A Jar and Energy In A Jar ideas and create a really special jar for your loved one. Full tutorial here



Make it Long Lasting


This is a great idea for those who want to remind their partners of how much they love them throughout the year. Give your loved one a jar of a year’s worth of reasons why you love him/her. All you need is a jar, some paper, ribbons and 52 reasons – can you think of that many? ;) Full tutorial here 



Make it warm


Give a Valentine’s Day gift that is sure to warm hearts! This is probably the safest, but still a very thoughtful option. You can make it extra special by adding a little note to the jar or maybe a special ingredient to give a kick to this hot drink. Full tutorial here

On the hunt for some fun homemade gifts for your loved ones this Christmas?  Gifts in a Jar are always fun to make and are great and thoughtful presents, too. This year Friends of Glass decided to make our very own Christmas Gift guide, with all presents beautifully packaged in glass jars of course ;) Hope our ideas will inspire you to get crafty!


Gift in a Jar for Her


You simply can’t go wrong with beauty treatments – every girl loves to make herself feel good. Simply gather together a small tub of face cleansing cream, lip balm, bath salts, sugar scrub, etc. Add the items to the jar with the content labels facing the outside so that the recipient can easily see what is in the jar. Once it is all in, print a ‘Spa in a Jar’ label and cut a length of ribbon to wrap around the jar to give it that special touch.




Gifts in a Jar for Him


Who doesn’t like hot chocolate? Try making this Snowman Hot Cocoa, it’s very simple and you can do this if you need a last minute gift and have no time to bake. Simply add some hot chocolate mix powder and some marshmallows into the jar and add a recipe tag on how to make the hot cocoa.




Gifts in a Jar for little ones


The Galt Giant Art Jar is an exciting selection of art and craft materials in a big storage jar, complete with idea sheets for lots of fun craft activities. It makes a lovely gift that will keep children occupied for many fun-filled hours.




Gifts in a Jar for a dog


Let’s not forget our four-legged friends too and treat them to some homemade snacks to get their tails wagging. We’re sure your furry friend will appreciate the effort ;)
