DIY: Hanging jar lanterns. The page gives you a link for the chained lid hangers pre made. I say use an awl and put your own holes in the lids then run chain or whatever works through the holes. This page has several mason jar crafts. Brilliant really.
loove this idea for christmas gifts for friends: pampering in a jar - warm fuzzy socks, lip balm, hand lotion or bubble bath, and some chocolates. add a bit of ribbon and a tag. Cute idea for women teachers or office staff
Think outside the gift basket "box!" This could be cool to fill with a holiday survival kit (tiny booze bottles, tea, chapstick, Emergen-C, lotion, aromatherapy stuff or whatever), or maybe a make your own cookies and hot cocoa thing?
