I Found The Perfect Jar for Gift-Giving

If you’re new here, you should know something about me: I LOATHE – HATE – DESPISE the use of Mason jars for anything cutesy.

They’re for food – for storing food!

The beauty of a well-filled Mason/Ball jar fills me with joy. Especially the squatty ones that I use for gift-giving my homemade Apple Butter.

Before you leave me a flaming comment about how these gorgeous jars can be used for ALL THE THINGS, understand I’ll never be swayed.


Wait! Maybe swayed a little. After all, I did buy the Mason Jar Cocktail Shaker.

Never scream NEVAH…

When I make butter, I use the smaller jars, like this one:

Slow Cooker Apple Butter Will Make You a Fanatic

…as well as the squatty jars. The wide mouth jars featured at the top of the post are easier to serve from, they store easily and have become my favs when offering gifts from my kitchen.

Adorable low profile puddin’ pops.

I know those of you with less hate of anything but food in a mason jar are teaming with ideas for these cute buggers.

Storing all sorts of things, making an ant farm, filling with cutesy daily affirmations.


Or not. Do you, baby.

Just know these jars are available for all our needs.

Happy Doing What You Do!

My one cutsie mason jar craft: Camp Dixie 2018 included my niece and nephews making firefly jars to take home with them. I had them paint dots on the inside of the jar with glow-in-the-dark paint so they wouldn't have to worry about the mess of real fireflies living/dying inside their jars.

Other than that, I'm right there with you on the anti-cutsie mason jar platform!
