Need a last-minute gift for Mom? She’ll love one of these DIY Mother’s Day Gifts in a Jar!

Consider making Mom or Grandma a jar filled with gifts as a fun surprise. Much like a gift basket, you can fill it up with personalized items she’d enjoy as a thoughtful way to say Happy Mother’s Day – plus, we’ve even got free Mother’s Day printables for gift tags for you!

You can make baskets/jars for all the special moms in your life. And long after she has used the contents, Mom can utilize these pretty storage jars all year long!

Grab some jars, and let’s make a cute Mother’s Day gift with these fun ideas!

My favorite jars to make these types of gifts are the Anchor Hocking Heritage jars from Walmart. They’re well-made, affordable, and super convenient to have around the house. The large 2-gallon glass jars are just $14 in-store, and there are other small and medium-sized varieties also like the 1/2 gallon smaller jar also pictured (around $6 in my store).

Hip Tip: HomeGoods and Target are also good spots to check for jars, as well as Dollar Tree (for a smaller Mason jar gift). You can also re-purpose a pretty jar you have around the house, or check your thrift store.

Then, simply print the FREE Mother’s Day printable gift tags on card stock paper and attach them to your jars with decorative ribbon or string. I’ve included tags in multiple sizes so you can use them on different sizes of jars.

It’s also worth mentioning that these tags would make a pretty gift topper or they could serve as a tag for any other gift you are planning for Mother’s Day!

Need some gift-in-a-jar inspiration?

I filled one jar with all kinds of fun ways for mom to pamper herself, such as different beauty and relaxation products and things I know she’ll enjoy! Another jar has summer essentials like a beach towel, sunglasses, flip-flops, and sunscreen. Finally, the last jar has a selection of pretty nail polish and supplies for the perfect manicure.

I used gift basket filling at the bottom of each jar, but that is definitely optional. And don’t forget the Mother’s Day printables for the attached gift tag!

Don’t forget to include a little Mom-mento!

I love that you can personalize this gift for mom at lots of different price points according to your budget. I’d also consider including some priceless items like a drawing from the kids, a special small framed photo, or photo magnets. Or even write down reasons why you love your mom/grandma on pieces of paper, just like we did with these DIY Kindness Jars!
