Get Well Soon DIY Gift In a Jar
This time of year, it seems like everyone has the flu (including me…boo!). The typical cough, sore throat, and stuffy nose has been going around college, which isn’t fun for anyone, especially during midterms.
I was inspired to create this “get well soon” gift in a jar! Whether it’s the common cold or in the hospital sickness, here’s an easy get-well-soon gift you can create…in a cute jar!
My favorite gifts are the useful ones – filled with things the person will actually use! This gift is functional, and the recipient will definitely use each part of it!
To put it all together, you’ll need:
- hand sanitizer
- cough drops
- comfy socks
- chocolate (definitely a must for a pick-me-up)
- lip balm
You can also add:
- soup and crackers
- Redbox or Netflix gift card
Layer the items in the jar. You can choose any jar, but I chose a clear one since I love seeing all of the different layers of colors! I put some cough drops and chocolate mixed in the bottom, and layered the items on top of that.
Around my jar, I tied some paper craft ribbon, in a soft blue. If you wish, you can also add a note around the string for a more personalized touch!
Then, your gift is ready for giving! Stick the lid on it and your jar is a present ready for giving!
