There's nothing more stressful than trying to stay within a holiday gift budget. Alleviate some of that stress (and still pay your rent on time) by making one of these delicious DIY edible jars! From delicious pies to stackable cakes to grown-up hot cocoa, these gifts come from the heart and save you cash at the same time!
Is there anything more comforting than a piece of homemade pie? However, giving someone an entire pie for the holidays seems a little off. So, to make the process easier, we made these cute little Mason jar pies that make perfect stocking stuffers and adorable hostess gifts! You can also customize the fillings to your preference, whether that be cherry or maple nut. Plus, if you want, you can cut out the top of the crust to fit perfectly inside the jar so you can put the lid on it and add some festive ribbon!
Yields about 2 pies

How cute are these adorable cakes in a jar? Amanda from I Am Baker made six unique cakes all from one simple cake recipe! What makes this a great gift for the holidays is you can customize each of your jars with different toppings and flavors. Does your mom love chocolate? Make her a double chocolate cake with rich chocolate buttercream. Your sister love fruity desserts? Top a simple white cake with berries and cream! The choices are endless and this is super cheap for you (all you need to buy are ingredients and jars!) Photo by Amanda Rettke.

This is the perfect gift for the holidays, especially if your family loves a good cocktail! This adorable jar is filled with hot cocoa mix, marshmallows and chocolate, with a cute Baileys bottle tied to the side! You can customize the kind of cocoa you use, as well as the type of bottle you tie to the side. You can easily give a few of these to family members, friends, co-workers and teachers (especially if your kids are a handful!) To make the jar really festive, add a fun holiday tag and some brightly colored ribbon! Photo by Samantha of GoodnYou?
