Do you and your families exchange a lot of gifts at Christmas? Because we don’t really. We stick to small things amongst the adults and all the attention goes to the kids.
My sister in law gave me an adorable candle holder and a jar full of an amazing apple cider spice mix last year. I loved it so much I hardly dared to use any of it because I was scared I’d run out of it too fast.
But of course it eventually happened and I had to recreate it in my kitchen.

If you don’t want to use the two-piece canning lids, there’s a variety of other lids you can use! Just double check to make sure they fit the jar you want to use (though the ones I linked above should all be regular mouth, I checked, but better safe than sorry!).
If you want to use some cute baker’s twine like I did, you can get a big roll here on Amazon.*
