Chocolate Bars in a Jar!
I think people often overthink gift giving. What to get? How much to spend? Will they like it? Oh, let's just get them a gift card. Gift cards are great, too, but we've got a great gift jar idea that is fun, personal, and perfect for any gift-giving occasion. Chocolate Bars in a Jar.
You can never go wrong with premium chocolate from DOVE®. For this gift idea, we made a 5-minute trip to Walgreens. That's one of the best things about shopping at Walgreens. You can get in and out in a few minutes, and they have the best chocolate selection, unique gifts, gift cards, and more—all in one spot.
This gift jar contains the following, and we got it all at Walgreens:
- DOVE® Bourbon Vanilla and DOVE® Dark Chocolate Bars
- Walgreens gift card
- Gold + glam coffee mug
- Glitzy gold ink pen
- Ribbon + lights...because you've gotta make it pretty.
Tips to Assemble this Personalized Gift Jar:
Gift jars are so easy to put together, and you can do virtually anything you want. As long as it will fit in the jar, you are golden. Here are our tips to make it great:
- Pick a jar big enough to hold what you want to give. Think about the size and shape of the gifts and chocolate you are putting inside. We went with this awesome (and functional) jar that would hold a lot of goodies inside. Plus, the jar is part of the gift, too.
- Place your biggest item inside first then work around to fill the jar.
- Fill the space with fun items like ribbon, battery lights, confetti and more. This creates dimension, visual interest, and allows you to use colors to fit the occasion. Think pastels for baby showers, gold and silver for graduation, blush for weddings...the options are endless!
- Tuck in a generous amount of rich and silky DOVE® Chocolate Bars.
- Add gift cards and small trinkets such as key chains, ink pens, notepads, magnets, book markers, or coffee pods. Pick items that are meaningful. You don't have to spend a fortune to make a special gift.
