Looking for that last minute, perfect gift? Look no further than the mason jar–the mainstay of Southern entertaining that we always love. The hard working mason jar can be found working everywhere from in the kitchen party prep to tabletop decor. So, it’s high time that it moves up the food chain and into place as Christmas gift. Here are a few of our favorite mason jar inspired gift ideas:

4. Know someone who loves fancy or vintage cars? Make them a “Mid-Life Crisis in a Jar” gift. Find a toy car model of their dream car and place it in the jar a la ship in a bottle style.

    I would love to win a set of the Christmas dinnerware. I am basically a casual person and decorate my home to reflect that, My husband and I both love the outdoors. Therefore, the dinnerware fits both of us perfectly. I would use them on the table with a green and red plaid placemat, red napkins and some simple glassware with possibly some type of holly and berries design on them if I could find them. In the center of the table, I would arrange some fresh greenery which would include pine, holly with berries, and fresh cut white flowers on a burlap runner. I would place a pair of carved wooden deer that I have in the center, Dinner would include many of my immediate family. We have both my husband’s family, as well as my family at the holidays to celebrate the season. The dinnerware would get lots of use. Please consider my entry. I would love to be one of the lucky winners!!!
