Season Greetings, Mason Jar Fans!
It’s that time of year again — the most wonderful and… the most stressful! I personally see December as my annual Thank-Everyone-Athon! And if you’re like me, then you might be feeling stretched a little thin these days. I know that I end up burning the Yule log at both ends! There’s the decorating. And the baking. And the shopping…
Oh and there’s a pandemic to worry about. This year the prospect of donning your mask and struggling through a sea of fellow shoppers at the mall is probably even less appealing. I totally and completely get that. But you can still find the perfect gift for everyone on your list by sitting back, relaxing at home in your comfiest pants (no judgement here!), while sipping on some eggnog, and clicking your way to present nirvana!
Here at Mason Jar Lifestyle, we’ve got you covered! Whether you’re shopping on a budget or searching for just the right gift for someone special, we have something for EVERYONE! We also offer FAST, FREE shipping on domestic orders over $39, PLUS you can request a personalized Season’s Greeting card with your message on it ( if we’re shipping directly to the recipient. Just add a “note” to your order when you check out.
If you need some guidance on the different materials and straw styles we offer, we put together a bunch of information in Reusable Straws & You to give you some guidance!
So let’s get started!

Our drinking combinations are super popular with kids and adults alike and certainly the most used items at my house!
Create the perfect on-the-go hot beverage vessel or icy tumbler gift by customizing colors, lid and straw options, even what size Mason jar you use. So grab a jar and start picking your accessories:

Your Final Straw!
We carry a lot of straws from metal to glass, paper to silicone. Straws that are perfect for little half pints and long ones for half gallon Mason jars. Whoever you’re shopping for – we have a straw for them!
We offer straws in multipacks if you know what you want or single straws if you’re putting together a specific drink set up.
My personal recommendation is to buy a combo pack which offers your recipient a few different options to try. The combo packs contain 6 straws in 3 different sizes (for half pint, pint, and quart Mason jars), a cloth bag, and straw cleaner.

Our Pour and store lids are the perfect gift for everyone from the pantry organizer to the smoothie lover and everyone in between!

Let Your Love Light Shine
Candle holders make a great gift and can easily be paired with electric or traditional votive candles to make it a set.
Our beautiful candle holders have handles so they can be hung up or set on a table or mantle to bring warmth and elegance.
We’ve creating these holders with several different cut out shapes, finishes, and in regular and wide mouth size:

Our MJL inserts are available in different cut out patterns such as: leaves, snowflakes, stars, daisy, coin slot, and hearts. We also offer them in a variety of finishes such as: galvanized, copper, stainless steel, and gold.
Put A Lid On It
You might be looking for a little more coverage than a cut out insert and so decorative lids are what you need!
At MJL, we’ve got a number of options to seal up your regular and wide mouth Mason jars with flair and function.
I personally love decorative lids for my crafting and sewing supplies because it keeps them neat while still at hand. You can add silicone lid liners to some of them and make them food safe.

Our MJL storage lids are available in different materials and for regular and wide mouth Mason jars. We offer a variety of storage lids to pick from though our most popular are:
Coffee Until Cocktails – Part 1
Cold brew coffee is possibly one of the greatest inventions for coffee lovers… I mean that in all seriousness. It creates a smooth, less acidic brew which stores easily in the fridge (which won’t be long because it’s delicious!). It’s also so easy to make and create the perfected iced coffee, tea, infused liquor, oat and nut milks, and so much more!
You can also use a pint size filter to wash, strain, and enjoy berries and other delicate foods on the go! Our MJL cold brew filter kits are made of high quality and durable stainless steel for years of enjoyment.
Coffee Until Cocktails – Part 2
The cocktails! If you have a cocktail lover on your list, then they need a Mason jar cocktail shaker.
We’ve paired out stainless steel band with the W&P Designs Mason Shaker for a stylish and sensible option that fits on any regular mouth Mason jar (taking up less space than a conventional cocktail shaker too). Store extra rounds in Mason jars in your fridge and just switch from storage to shaker. No more party faux pas!
