Christmas Cookie Jar Gift Idea

Are you ready for some more Christmas Printables. I shared 40+ Free Christmas Prints yesterday and am sharing even more today. I’ve teamed up with some friends to provide lots of great inspiration for you today.

If you’ve followed the blog for awhile you’ll have seen the Cookie Mix in a Jar Gift I’ve done a few times with different themes/holidays. This time, it’s Christmas. How could I not make one for my favorite holiday?! 😉

The best thing abut this gift is it can easily be made in bulk for only a few bucks each. Perfect!

Christmas Cookies in a Jar - Cute and Easy gift idea!

Here is how you can make this Christmas Cookie Jar Gift Idea too!


– Quart Jar

– Cookie Ingredients (found below)

– Printable (found below)

– Scissors

– Twine/Ribbon

– Washi Tape


1. Clean your jars and let dry completely.

2. Fill your jars. Start with 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/s tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt.

Then add 1/2 cup brown sugar followed by 1/2 cup sugar.

Then add 2/3 cup chopped Christmas M&Ms.

Top off with 2/3 cup whole Christmas M&Ms.

3. From there you will SAVE the print/recipe tag by CLICKING on the image above and then RIGHT-CLICKING and SAVING.

Then open it in a program like word and print. It should be about 2.25 inches x 4 inches which fits the jar perfectly. I suggest printing onto cardstock so the recipe can be more durable for later use.

Tape onto your jar and then tie some twine around.

4. You can embellish the top by putting some washi tape on it. Just makes it look even cuter. ;)

    So cute! I always forget about cookies in a jar, we use to do them when I was little. I’ll have to try it this year!

    I have a 16 oz blue mason jar and would love to put together a recipe in it for a White Elephant Gift Exchange. I love the pop of color the crushed M&M’s give and your recipe printable is so cute. :)

    Is the download for the Christmas Kisses working?

    Hi! If I only have pint size mason jars. How might I revise the recipe/baking instructions? Thanks!!

    I’m a newbie at cookie mix in the jar (or cookie mix at all for that matter). Do I need pack down the flour and brown sugar in the measuring cups? I measured like the directions said and packed it down in the jar and I feel like there’s too much room left compared to what I see in your pictures. And I used quart jars. Thanks!

      Hi Chelsea. I’m sorry you’re having problems with this. I always pack down the brown sugar for recipes. When I put it in the jars it just pat it down a bit with a spoon but don’t push it down a ton. How much room is left at the top?

    Hi! One additional question,

    I decided to try the recipe first before giving out the gifts. Especially because I am not the best measurer. It is too dry. Am I missing something?? I added 1/4 c of water and they turned out good. Now I am considering changing the recipe even though I have already printed and laminated it. Did I do something wrong? I did the recipe exactly.

      Hi Jennifer. So sorry you’re having problems. You added the butter, oil, egg and vanilla right? It should be fine. This is the recipe we use all the time, just cut in half, which I’ve done several times. Not sure what is happening. :/

    • 17

      Same thing happened to me, I followed the directions. Are the measurements of the butter,oil and egg correct? My dough was powdery and didn’t come together.

    The style of a well used movie theater can be carried out using the structural arranging as part of your room.

    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

    The instructions don’t say what size to make the cookies. Teaspoons? Or baker’s preference?

  16. 25

    Cute idea! When I printed the recipe it came out 4 x 6, what did I do wrong? It’s too big for the quart jar and if I trim it, I will cut off the pattern off.

    It is half-way down the small intestine between its duodenum and ileum sections.
    Together with the hydrochloric acid, these digestive juices further breakdown the food into absorbable substance.

    Popular forms of fibre include wheat bran and psyllium husks;
    however these fibres may bloat some people.

    Hi Kristyn, This is the first time I have visited you site, love it. I really love the Cookie in a Jar idea. This would make a great gift. I think the worst part of baking is getting everything together. I usually find out I’m missing something. I also have been looking for Home Made Gifts to carry in our Store. I have a little Gift Shop/Convenience Store, I think this would be perfect. Thanks so much.
    If you have a chance please check out my Blog, I always love hearing opinions from other Great Bloggers (good or bad), its a great way to see what we might to better. Thanks, Donna & God Bless

    Are the mason jars quart size regular or widemouth?
