Alie & Georgia’s Homemade Canned Gift Ideas

Related To:

As frugal gals at heart, wholly without use for fancy or expensive trinkets, our favorite gifts are those that encompass the following characteristics:

1. Useful
2. Unexpected
3. Homemade

It is with that in mind that we present our choice gift to give this year: jarred condiments. Yes, we said condiments. Also known as “stuff to put on things,” homemade condiments are a great way to add creative, interesting flair to any staples on the table.

Then, just put the “stuff to put on things” into a “thing that holds stuff,” also known as a Mason jar. As two vintage-inclined chicks, we’ve been extolling the virtues of the inexpensive yet kitschy vessel that is the Mason jar for years. They’re readily available at most grocery, kitchen and hardware stores and they’re cheap and adorable.

Below are some recipes for homemade condiments you can present in cute jars to turn your gift giving into something uniquely awesome. Attach a little label with serving suggestions, or make a gift basket with a few different jars of tasty things plus some recipes. Look! You just made someone’s whole year. Fine, that’s an overstatement, but they’ll be stoked.
