Desserts in a jar

One of the easiest gifts to make that people enjoy and appreciate is brownies/ any treat in a jar. Cookies, cakes, brownies, hot chocolate, and basically anything else that has dry ingredients can be made into a gift. All you need to do is layer the dry ingredients (appropriately measured out according to your recipe) in the jar, attach instructions for finishing the recipe and baking, and decorate it as you please.

There is room to be creative and not only use the recipe you are famous for, but also customize your choice based on your recipients taste and preferences. Just do not forget to keep in mind any allergies the person might have.

They are also visually interesting and you can put your decorating and designing skills to work. They really remind me of making sand art as a kid with the different layers of colored sand. Plus, once your gift has been made and eaten, your recipient can use the jar you put it in.
