Mason Jar Gift Idea: Mani-Pedi in a Jar

A thoughtful gift doesn’t have to cost a lot.

Small items and a cute presentation can put a big smile on your recipient’s face as much as (if not more than) a big, expensive gift.

For this gift, we collected several small items needed for a manicure or pedicure.

Many of these items were purchased throughout the year on clearance, with coupons or rewards programs at drug stores.

Check your stockpile and see if some of the items you have on hand might fit together in a theme such as “Bath in a Jar” or “Pamper Yourself.”

You could also pick up small items for a Gift Jar from a dollar store or the clearance section of almost any store.
