Looking for some simple, handmade gifts for girlfriends this holiday season? My Holiday Glam In A Jar gift is the perfect gift for a stylish friend or coworker to deck the halls and themselves. Inside there are some unique holiday decorations and a few simple pampering essentials.
I started by grabbing a basic cracker jar. It’s the same type of jar I used in my S’mores In A Jar gift (which also makes an awesome holiday gift, just add some candy canes!) They are the perfect size to fill with smaller treats and trinkets. The wide mouth opening makes it very easy to place things in the jar and for your gift recipient to remove them as they check out their gift.
Next, I used a layer of pearlescent beaded garland in the bottom. They’re great for decorating trees, mantles, even over a pretty mirror in a bathroom. On top of that I placed a layer of glittery white pinecone ornaments.
On top of that I added these awesome gem shaped ornaments in a variety of colors. They were fairly inexpensive and I’m not going to lie, I want them for myself.
To top off the ornaments I added a mini bottle brush tree a few bottles of nail polish – I’ve always been partial to Essie (here’s my signature color) and I love this glittery gold color. Then because winter means chapped lips I added some EOS lip balm. I love how the mini bottle brush tree completes the look!
I screwed on the lid of the jar, wrapped some baker’s twine around it (if you’ve been following me for a while then you know I keep this stuff stocked in every color) and attached a little cluster of pinecone ornaments. You can skip this if you like and just add a gift tag. That’s it.
