And if you are looking for a suggestion when it comes to packaging, I highly recommend WECK Jars. They are so adorable, especially all tied up with a sparkly ribbon.
They are my very favorite jars. I use them for so many things, from storing my Cranberry Jam, the Hot Chocolate Mix, to storing chocolate chips, candies, cupcake wrappers, even flour and sugar in the tall, big jars. They are great for making centerpieces or a small decorating pieces for the fireplace. There are just so many ways to use them!
