    I never get anything homemade :( It seems like, around here, no one but me bakes gifts for the holidays anymore! I'd LOVE to get anything homemade - instead, I have to show up at potluck parties and hang out by the food table all night to get my fill. LOL

    Love these ideas! :)

    My only problem with this is finding the jars. The only place I bought them closed down. Is there a retail chain that sells them?

    • Tara

      Laurie, you can find a nice selection of canning jars, including the pretty cut preserves jars, at Walmart. Many grocery stores will have a small selection as well.

      I got my jars on Amazon: They have a lot of choices there. Also, my grocery store (Smith's) has Ball canning jars at the end of the baking isle. Hope that helps!

      I got mine at WalMart as well. They have them in the section with Kitchen tools. Hope this helps

    I always give homemade gifts and everyone loves them! Each year I make Chocolate Truffles, Cookies, Banana Bread and Zucchini Bread . . . People really appreciate it when they receive them, especially since it is a lost art! Merry Christmas everyone, bake up some love for your Family and Friends, they will never forget it! ~ Candy Darr

    Do you have this home made pancake mix recipe on the website? I see the idea for it in gift jars, just not the actually recipe.

    I am new to the site, and a bit lost. Love it though!

    Thanks for the help.
