Personalized and homemade gifts always have that special touch and are perfect for the holidays. With party season starting, it’s nice to bring a little something for the hostess. Here we’ll show you a cute and simple idea for a decorative jar gift where your packaging is just as impressive as the jam or other treats inside.

What you’ll need:

  • a glass jar with lid
  • a personalized gift tag sticker; here we have used Tiny Prints Table Setting gift tag sticker
  • a piece of calico fabric to match the color or design of your gift tag sticker
  • a rubber band
  • decorative ribbon
  • homemade jam/jelly/chocolate dipping sauce/etc.

After filling the jar with your homemade jam, simply stick the gift tag sticker to the center of the glass jar. Trace the jar lid on to the back side of your calico fabric, and draw a circle that is about 1″ larger than the size of the jar lid (depending on how much frill you want and the size of the lid). Cut out the circle; you can even use pinking shears or decorative scissors for unique edges. Cover the lid with the fabric circle and fasten with a rubber band to hold it in place. Tie a ribbon around the jar neck for the finishing touch.



It’s a quick, easy, and adorable gift that the hostess will love! You can even use the same idea to package multiple jars to distribute your favorite holiday jam to friends and family.

  3. Personalized gifts add a more personal touch – excuse the pun – than an ordinary present.
