Jar-normous Gift Ideas


Sometimes you need a quick gift idea. Perhaps itís a holiday, like Fatherís Day, youíre celebrating with friends, someoneís sick, or welcoming a new neighbor. Instead of one gift, why not pack a large container full of small gifts thoughtfully selected by you? As a bonus, the container itself is a gift to be reused time and time again! While weíve featured a celebration gift idea, the possibilities are endless. Weíve listed a few other ideas as well!

Celebration Gift Materials

•  Large container (mine came from Target)

•  Wooden spoon

•  Sangria ingredients (see next page)

•  Ribbon & gift tag

Assemble Container

Pack your drink dispenser with your favorite wine and other ingredients needed for making this sangria recipe (or choose your favorite!). Tie on a cute ribbon and wooden spoon. Don’t forget to attach a gift tag with the recipe written on the back.


Sangria Recipe


•  Fresh fruit of choice (limes, berries, lemons, watermelon, oranges, kiwi, plums, peaches)

•  1 bottle wine (I used Pinot Grigio)

•  Fresh mint (garnish)

•  ½ cup agave or sugar

•  ¼ cup triple sec

•  ½ cup light rum

•  ½ cup orange, pomegranate or lemon juice

•  1 – 2 cups ginger ale, lemonade or club soda


Add sugar or agave to container along with wine, triple sec, and rum. Stir to dissolve. Add sliced fruit and juice of choice, stir. Chill for 2 hours. Fill ice-filled glasses with sangria, top with a splash of ginger ale, lemonade, or club soda. Garnish with a mint sprig
