I think these DIY mason jar spa gift ideas are just so incredibly perfect for the end of year. Or in this case, the end of the decade. (Whoa!) I mean, is there anyone among us who could not use a little pampering right now?
If you can’t afford to gift everyone you love a trip to the spa, then why not bring the spa right home to them?
While putting together a dozen wonderful DIY mason jar food gifts, I came across so many wonderful DIY spa jar ideas using mostly edible ingredients, that I had to share them with you all too.
A set of a dozen large 32 oz. mason jars will run only about $10 at Target (an affiliate) or your local supermarket, so this is the kind of gift that lets us all be generous without breaking the bank. So grab some mason jars and the ingredients you’ll need for these fun, thoughtful DIY mason jar gifts, and put all your own little elves to work for all the special teachers, friends, family members and party hosts in their lives.

Homemade mason jar spa gifts for the pampering we all need
One of my daughters makes me the sweetest smelling sugar scrubs each year, so I wholeheartedly recommend gifting a trio of holiday-scented sugar scrubs in mason jars from Hello Glow.
Her recipes for peppermint latte, gingerbread cookie, and mulling spice sugar scrubs call for only a ingredients — all kid-safe — so there’s no reason they can’t help you blend sugar, coffee and extracts into a mixing bowl before scooping into a mason jar. And I love the way she hangs simple handwritten tags around each jar.
The layered peppermint bath salts in mason jars from Crafts by Amanda may take a steadier hand to get that candy cane stripe just right, but the result looks worth the effort. With only four common ingredients, this two-tone gift comes together quickly. All that’s left is to attach a bow and a gift card.
A DIY eucalyptus shower scrub brings the refreshing scents of the holidays into your bath, and this recipe from Aura Cacia (some of our favorite essential oils) is really so doable. The one ingredient you may need to pick up is basic unscented castille soap like Dr. Bronner’s, and of course, some essential oils. Not that you won’t be using those all year long. Scoop into a mason jar, and if you’d like, affix a pretty little spoon/scoop to the lid with some ribbon.
A candy cane, sprig of rosemary, and free printable label make the peppermint sugar scrub mason jar gift look like you took it off the shelf of a gift shop. So pro! With only three ingredients, it’s super easy to make this one, even during the busy holiday season.
I love giving kids the extra craft project of making washi-tape Christmas trees on the front of our mason jar gifts each holiday, as seen in this lavender bath salt recipe by Living Locurto for Tater Tots and Jello. So much good inspiration there! Be sure to check out the free printable gift tags to complete your gift.
