A gift idea for grandma

Grandma’s SWEET Treats!

A gift idea for grandma

Every Grandma needs a cookie jar…or a candy jar…or an anything SWEET jar!

I found these fun jars at Target

A gift idea for grandma

and thought I would personalize them with a little vinyl,

Once it is applied to the jar…

A gift idea for grandma

you have a one of a kind SWEETS jar.

Now just fill with some baking goodies

A gift idea for grandma

and some actual SWEET treats,

A gift idea for grandma

And you have yourself a perfect gift for Grandma.

A gift idea for grandma

Or change the name and make one for yourself because really, we all need our own SWEETS jar!

A gift idea for grandma

    This is very cute. What a great gift! You could even do one for Teacher's Treats and give it to the teacher at the beginning of the year. So many of them have a stash of goodies they give to the kids anyway. Of course, you'd use candy, pencils, rulers, etc. to fill it. I love this idea.

    My grandkids are so lucky. They have a nana (me) and a grandma - would love to surprise her with this gift. She is always looking for nana stuff for me. I would fill it with drawings done by the kids ( 11, 8, and 5). Thanks so much!

    Mine would be full, err.. 1/4 full of oreos! My kids love EVERY kind of Oreo and I hate the silly plastic case it comes in- Come to think of it, I DO need to go get a cookie jar.. Or get one for my mom- she ALWAYS has cookies of every kind ready for when the kids come over. :)

    I actually have a jar on my counter that my kids can choose out of. It has granola bars, suckers, chips, fruit snacks, & other things. That way they have a variety to choose from. If it were for me though...there would be chocolate chip cookies in it!

I have my first two grandchildren arriving (one next month and the other in January!) and one of my daughter's fondest memories of my mom was a little mailbox she kept in the kitchen and when she put the flag up, the grandkids could pick a candy out of it. I was thinking the other day that I wanted to do something similar with my grandchildren and this is perfect!!

    So cute! Treats would change like the weather...right now though, Swedish Fish would fill it!

    ADORABLE idea...I know that I'd fill it with tootsie rolls (that's what I want right now) but anything chocolate will be the filler!!!!

    I love giving gifts like this. Only I buy my jars at the Dollar Tree for $2.00 and add the person's name to the lid instead. I've also used those same jars for storing homemade lotion and sugar scrubs I've made to give as a gift. -Karen

    My grandma always had a candy dish filled with sweet treats when we would come to visit. Maybe it is time my mom continued the same tradition. This would be a fun gift to give her.
    I would let my little boys pick out the treats and I am guessing that we would end up with an assortment of suckers - their favorite.

    What a great idea! I'd fill my sweets jar with homemade chocolate chip cookies. When I'm not in the mood to make the cookies I'd fill the jar with peanut M&Ms.

    My sweet treats jar would definitely be filled with chocolate peanut butter cups. And not the Reese's ones either...I prefer the Walmart brand when I can find them. The peanut butter is much creamier. ;-)

    I would LOVE to make this for my Mom who will be moving back home after a 1.5 yr stay at an assisted living center. She can't wait to get back to baking and spoiling her grand kids the way she always has done. What a great and creative idea! Her big 75th birthday is also coming up so this will make a great addition to her gift!

    I am not sure our jar would ever be full. I have four little ones and they are growing like crazy!! Food of every kind disappears instantly. It would be fun to try to keep it full, though. :) Maybe throw in some grapes or blueberries to throw the little ones off.

    Love this idea and your site. May have to make one for myself. Right now, I'd fill it with Swedish Fish, (YUM!) but tomorrow it might have to be something chocolate.

    I love this! It's so cute. But I am going to make one for me! It's going to say mom's sweet treats. I love cookies!! Chocolate Chip especially. My grown brothers all still come straight into my pantry when they enter my house! And my kids know mom always treats hidden around. It's perfect for my kitchen! I think I'll make one for my grandma as well. She's where my sweet tooth and treat hiding habit come from!

    Pretty much anything chocolate would do! I love m&m's for a sweet little treat. I also like Jordan Almonds. I think I'd put some of those in there. My sweet jar would probably need a lock and key though to keep me (and my 4 little boys) out of it! Thanks for sharing the cute idea!

    Ahh, I would just love to give one of these to my mom! She would definitely put M&M's in hers. The kids can always count on her for M&M's!

    • December 22nd, 2010 at 10:49 am
      Missy says:
      if you got the vinyl at a craft store, you would have to have a cutter to cut the letters out unless you are really good with an exacto knife:) You can try vinyl wall expressions - they are our sponsor on our side bar - you just tell them the size, font and words and they will cut it for you!
