When I think of neighbor gifts, I usually think of treats. While I’m not opposed to treats, I think these Meal in a Jar ideas could make a great alternative to the treats, and I’m sure neighbors and friends would love to have a simple dinner solution during this busy time of year! Today I’m excited to be joining up with Make Ahead Meal Mom for this post. Candi is an amazing cook (we are real life friends and neighbors, and I’ve had meals she’s cooked many times) so I know that these meals would be delicious! Candi is sharing the recipes over on her blog, and I’m sharing the Meal in a Jar Printable Labels for them here.

Meal in a Jar Printable Labels Supplies:
- Meal in a Jar Printable Lid Labels
- Meal in a Jar Printable Title Tags
- Meals in a Jar
- Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker
- White Cardstock
- Printable Label Sheets
- Hole Punch
Upload your files to Cricut Design Space. Size them to the correct size for print then cut. The largest size these can be is 9.25″ x 6.75″. Using Cricut Design Space, print the designs out onto the label paper and the cardstock. Once printed, follow the prompts on the screen to cut the designs. Your Cricut will read the registration marks.
Then it will start cutting your design.
Once you have your Meals in a Jar made, you can start assembling them. Peel your sticker labels off of the sheet and place them on the lids.
These labels are made to perfectly fit on a wide mouth quart size jar.
Next, grab your ribbon and tags, and attach them to the front of the jars.
Not only do these make great neighbor gifts, they would also be great to have in your food storage. Take some time one day to put several together, and then you can have some quick meals to use on those nights when you don’t have a lot of time. AND if you’re looking for more meals like that, whether it’s freezer meals, or something along those lines, then you need to be sure to check out Make Ahead Meal Mom. She amazes me with her skills when it comes to preparing food ahead of time!
When you have your jars all labeled, you’re ready to gift them or put them into your storage.
These are great because the instructions are right on the top of the jar where you can easily find them, and you don’t have look for them.
Your friends and neighbors are going to love this neighbor gift! If you’re looking for more fun neighbor gift ideas, I’ve got a few here on the blog. You can find them here.Linking up to some of these parties.
