This fun and easy Birthday Candy Jar and printable is a cute gift to share with friends and family.
I always have candy in my cupboards and empty mason jars in my blogging stash! I decided to combine the two for a very quick and easy gift for the blog hop.
As for the other creative ideas, a lot of these gifts are versatile for any occasion, and can be a go to gift to your friends, family, or even that friend that you would like to get to know better. Even more fabulous--most gifts are under $5, and have coordinating printables to make it super simple!
As we get older, we tend to not celebrate our birthdays with friends as much. It just ends up being another day in our busy schedules with a cake bonus thrown in, if we are lucky.
Just think how exciting it would be if one of your friends showed up unexpectedly with a cute little gift to say "Happy Birthday" and "I was thinking about you today."
One way to show your love for a friend is to remember the little details such as what their favorite candy is. Remembering the small things about someone shows you noticed and you care. What better way to say Happy Birthday to someone than with one of their little favorites.
When I was brainstorming this candy jar, my husband actually came up with the Swedish Fish and "Off the Hook" saying. It was such a cute idea that I couldn't resist using it!
I'm telling you he helps me out all the time with things like this. He is definitely a keeper!!!
I created a printable that you can print from the link under the picture. It is already sized to fit a pint size mason jar. Just punch a hole in one corner and tie it on the jar with some twine.
I also used some washi tape around the jar lid to add some color. Feel free to use whatever ribbon or tape you have on hand. The idea is not to spend a lot of money, but to create a small gift that shows your friend how important they are in your life.
Very interesting post! Thank you for giving me an idea, as my friend’s birthday is close and I was planning to give him something special.
I was also thinking to order a beautiful jar from KindNotes for my best friend on his birthday as I previously ordered it for my mother’s birthday and she was so happy after receiving that gift. Hope he will also like it.
This is such a cute idea! Love this!
Thanks Kristi! 🙂
Wow!! This looks like a serious project to bring us such an awesome and fun round-up! So glad you all teamed up for such a great post! And your "hope your birthday is off the hook" is SO cute! Pinned 🙂
One of my friend's birthdays is this weekend and she LOVES those fish heehee. Guess I know what to bring with me (beside cupcakes lol). 😀
He is a keeper - that saying is so fun! I love gifts like this because they show someone thought about it rather than just scribbling happy birthday on a piece of paper. Swedish fish are so good; we rarely get them because of that 😉 What an awesome birthday candy gift!

I haven't had Swedish fish in...forever. My uncle used to bring some when he visited from NYC. Great memories. This is ridiculously cute!
what a cute idea!! love the catchy phrase! xoxo
This is a cute idea. And it's funny seeing you say "as we get older".... 🙂
Thanks Mom! 😉

This is SO cute!!! My guy and I have birthdays just 6 days apart, so we tend to cram lots of birthday celebrations in this time of year. 😉 Unfortunately, he had to work all the way until 11 pm on my birthday, so we have yet to celebrate it. He promised me he'd take the night off from volunteering on Friday so we could go check out this dessert diner in Sacramento, so fingers crossed that actually happens! But I'm definitely keeping this cute candy jar in mind for him next year. Although he hates most baked goodies, he's obsessed with candy, so he'd actually enjoy receiving this as a gift!!
Swedish Fish are my hubby's favorite candy! This is too cute!
Thanks Aimee! 😉
I LOVE candy!! And I always have a stash too! this is perfect!

So cute! I'm more of a chocolate gal, but I know a ton of gummy lovers who would flip over this!

Girl this is seriously so incredible!!! I want these for breakfast now!
Haha! Swedish fish for breakfast? I'm not sure it goes that well with coffee, but hey, you do what you need to do 🙂
So cute!! 🙂
Swedish fish may just be my favorite candy! I LOVE this cute idea and tag! Thanks, pinned
Thanks for the pin Lauren! 🙂
So cute! I've always been a 'sucker' for Swedish Fish even though I know they're junk
Almost irresistible in this cute jar!
