Give your sweetheart a fun Valentine’s jar gift. This one is so super simple that anyone can make it. Plus your valentine will love the sweet sentiment and the hot chocolate as well. Who doesn’t love a hot chocolate gift? Yeah….pretty much everyone would love to get hot chocolate. Pair it with our free printable tags and two straws for a gift they will adore! You could even add our Rolo hot chocolate recipe or this homemade hot chocolate mix to this gift idea.
This one was first published on January 27, 2015, however, I am republishing it with more information.

How to Make the Valentine’s Day Gift Idea
Now that you have your supplies and printable tags, it is time to pull together this cute Valentine’s jar for gift giving to someone you love. This only takes a few minutes but I know they will love this thoughtful and inexpensive gift idea.
Valentine’s Jar Gift Idea
- Print the tags onto a card stock weight paper and cut to size. Punch a hole in the top of your tag. You can use scissors to cut out the tags or a paper cutter.
- Layer the hot chocolate ingredients into your mason jar mug. I like adding chocolate pieces to the bottom then putting in the powdered mix and finally adding on marshmallows. You could even add peppermint pieces or shaped marshmallows. Whatever you like can go into the jar.
- Top the jar with the lid then tie on the straws and a gift tag.
It really is that simple to make a gift for your Valentine. I like to use cute paper straws to really make this gift pop. You can get a wide variety now so pick ones that are Valentine themed or even ones that your gift recipient will love.
Then all that is left is to give this one to your Valentine on the big day. You could add this to a gift basket full of things that show you care. Or just give them this mug as a sweet ending to a date night at home. Either way, be sure to enjoy something sweet and hot together!
I love gift ideas like this one that are simple and show you care. In fact, a simple gift idea like this can be made by just about anyone. So, grab your supplies to make a Valentine’s jar for someone you care about this year.
