Clever Hostess Gift

ikea jarsI posted a couple of months ago that we went to IKEA for the first time. While there I purchased a cute 4-pack of their spice jars. I think it cost around $3.49. I’ve been trying to be creative and thoughtful about bringing hostess gifts when we’re invited to friends’ houses and thought I could do something cute with the spice jars.

You can fill them without having to remove them from their packaging. I filled each with different bath salts and bath beads and my friend was so pleased. It looked nice enough that I didn’t feel I had to wrap it. I wish I’d taken a picture of it before I gave it to her. 🙁

The possibilities are endless: nuts, spices, hair accessories, office supplies, seeds, candy…

The lids in the picture aren’t quite like the ones I bought, which were much more amenable to putting labels on the lids.
