2014 Christmas Gift Guide | DIY 'Reasons Why I Love You' Jar

I'm so happy to be back! School has definitely consumed most of my time, so it's hard to fit in time for blogging. But what better time to blog than Christmas break?

So, it's that time of year when you're scrambling to find last minute presents for the big day. Unfortunately, everyone's so busy that we often don't have the time (or the money) to go out and buy a present for everyone. Don't worry, I got you covered. I love receiving personalized gifts, so I thought my 'Reasons Why I Love You' jar would be the perfect gift to make. I had so much fun making this, and I hope you guys will too!

Materials // a mason jar, small pieces of paper, ribbon, and a hot glue gun


One // Start by tracing the inner rim of the lid and cutting out the circle. 


Two // Glue the paper onto the metal cap. 


Three // On each piece of paper, write one thing you love about that person! You could write about anything from your favorite memories to your favorite qualities you love about them. Cue the inside jokes.


Four // Fold the pieces of paper, and drop them in the jar! I'm not sure why this is such a satisfying feeling.


Five // Decorate by hot-gluing a label to the front and add a festive ribbon for some decoration.


What's your favorite DIY gift?

  16. Yes, I definitely agree! Sometimes it's tough coming up with a personalized, sentimental gift, so I think this pairs perfectly with a generic item :)
