1. Breakfast.

Start the day off right: whether it’s fruit, granola or a yogurt parfait, screw the lid on tight & you’re on the go. Great for coffee, too.


2. Flowers.

The more the better.


3. A little aquarium.

Beautiful party favors, centerpieces or classroom curiosities. Put the fish back in a bigger aquarium afterwards, or let them swim free!


4. Preserves.

While the ongoing obsession with out-of-the-box Mason jar projects continues, it’s nice to get back to what Mason jars were designed for – canning & preserving! Canned fruit & jams make treats & gifts year-round.


5. Floating candles.

Nothing’s more perfect for a summertime candlelit dinner.


6. Kits.

Emergency kit, sewing kit, you name it.


7. Message in a Mason jar.

Bottle it up & send it off to someone special.


8. Cakes.

So many delicious options.


9. Cocktails, of course.

Mix up a ready-to-serve batch for a party (summery ideas here), or better yet treat yourself to a boozy shaved ice!


10. Time capsule.

Preserve a jarful of vacation souvenirs or bury a cache of photos in the backyard. Don’t forget to dig it up someday down the road!
