Christmas Holiday Link-up

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

I cannot believe it's already time for the last Holiday link-up! Time has seriously flown by. For the Christmas link-up I've decided to show y'all some simple Christmas gifts for co-workers, neighbors or friends as well as what I've decided to give my co-workers this year.

I love this but make sure you get something for the guys too ;) via

I love the idea of Christmas cookies in a jar! These are always so adorable! via If you need some good mason jar cookie ideas check this website and this website - it even has free recipe printables!

Love this easy and creative mason jar. You don't even have to bake and it looks adorable! There's even a free printable tag - although not sure I'd want to give the "I'd melt for you" tag to my co-workers ;)

Love the simplicity of this gift. Who doesn't love some Christmas m&m's? I love that they tell the Christmas story. A great way to remind those about the true meaning of Christmas. via

I think this gift is so adorable and creative! It also shouldn't ruin people's sugar diet's too bad... via

This gift is a little more involved but super adorable none the less. I love how they included a Christmas themed bowl/plate along with some yummy goodies! via

With so many of these amazing gift ideas, I hard a hard time deciding what to give my co-workers. I thought about doing a Christmas cookie in a jar but realized I'm not sure how many people want to bake (kind of obligated with that gift), plus my boss is doing really well on his diet and I'd hate to mess him up. Then I thought about doing the dip mix ornaments but then I wasn't sure how many people would enjoy that since you have to make the dip yourself and if it's just one person, that's a lot of dip. I finally decided on Chex mix mason jars. I figured it's delicious, there's no extra baking for the people receiving the gift, it shouldn't hurt a diet too bad and it's cost effective. 

Stephen was so sweet and made these adorable labels for me

I used the traditional Chex mix recipe on the side of the Chex mix cereal box. We've been using this recipe as long as I can remember and it's never failed us :) Hopefully everyone at work will like it!


  1. I did nail polish stuff for my co-workers last year and it was a huge hit!! I love chex mix and it's a great snack to have at your desk too!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  2. Those jars are such a cute idea, love the label too!

  3. That is such a nice treat for all of your co-workers! I love all the mason jar gift ideas, such cute and inexpensive ways to show you care.

  4. So cute! These are all such great ideas. :)

  5. These are all fabulous ideas!!!!

  6. So many great ideas! I love the first one :) And I've always thought the same thing about the cookie mixes - cute but how many people are ACTUALLY going to end up baking them? Yours turned out perfectly!

  7. "Jar gifts" are some of my absolute favorite things to give and receive!
