Gifts in a Mason Jar: Teenage Boy


Wow - it is that time all ready. Time to think about the holidays and gift giving. I have a teenage boy and as he gets older I have a much harder time purchasing non-electronic (items with screens) gifts and also ones that don't cost hundreds of dollars (gaming systems). This year, for one of his gifts I am combining a few of his favorite things in a drinkable mason jar. I sure hope he likes it! There are so many ways to personalize mason jars and make unique gifts. I probably spent a little more on this gift because it was for my son, but I also think a mason jar filled with candy and a gift card or other small gift would be much appreciated by any teenage boy.

Trying to surprise and delight my teenage boy gets harder and harder. This year I made a small collection of his favorites in a drinkable mason jar.

Supplies:
1. Wide Mouth Mason jar and lid. I actually choose a 24 ounce jar with a s=drinkable lid and stainless steel straw, so that the jar also serves a purpose after opening the gift.
2. His favorite candy
3. A portable charger
4. New earbuds
5. Gift cards (one for food, one for gifts, one for music)
On the blog post there is a list of other items that might work really well for a teenage boy gift in a jar.

Quality drinking glasses are a hot commodity in our house. I made a mason jar drinking cozy in a Star Wars fabric to decorate the jar.

All of my smaller gifts fit perfectly in the jar. Now, just put the top on and you are ready for gifting!

    Where did you get the sipper / straw top?

      I bought this jar and id together. I think you can get them on Amazon or even Target/Walmart sell similar lids

    I have some plastic jars that contained nuts from Costco. I will use them for younger children. Thank you for this idea.

      Plastic jars are a great idea for little kids. I save both plastic and glass jars for projects like. this
