Happy #MealPrepMonday everyone! If you are anything like me, you are probably searching for some last-minute gift ideas right about now. I am a big fan of mason jar DIY gifts however, most of them contain loads of sugar (ie: cookies, hot cocoa, brownies etc). And as yummy as these things are, everyone is probably already going to be indulging in them this week, so why would you give them more to consume after the holidays? Listed below are some healthy DIY mason jar gifts that anyone would be excited about. Give the gift of health with one of these jars! (each of the links has printable labels and/or decorating ideas also).
