DIY Tuesday: Mason Jar Prize Pack Ideas

As an event planner, I am always searching for ways to honor guests and provide them with something they can take home and enjoy. I LOVE giving and creating swag for events.When I saw this amazing DIY for bridesmaids’ gifts, I thought of all the ways this could be redone and all the events that it would be amazing for. For this particular gift pack, One Reputation’s Aisle Files, included cotton balls, mini nail polish remover, nail file, mini manicure set, nail polish, and other items needed for an at home manicure.

You can take it to another level by creating and customizing this idea. Here are some ideas to think about:

    • Baby shower- fill jar with items that represent the sex of the baby
    • Fundraiser- fill jar with items that represent the organization or cause such as a pedometer, nutrition bar, sweat band, and t-shirt for a cause supporting fitness and health
    • Gardening- fill jar with seed packets, instructions, and mini gardening tools
    • Cinco de Mayo- Margarita Mix anyone?
    • Graduation- fill mason jar with well wishes, quotes, pictures, gift cards and advice for the graduate who is about to embark on a journey of self-discovery
    • It’s also a pretty clever way to gift gift cards. For example, fill the far with mini packets of candy, popcorn, and chocolate then add a movie gift card!

What you’ll need:

Try this DIY the next time you get stumped with gift giving or as a way to thank your guests for their support at your next event!

    What size jar was used for this particular gift?

    • thesoabrand

      It looks like a quarter sized jar, but I’d go with a half pint sized.
