We’re headed into the gift-giving season, and homemade gifts are always my favorite. Most often I’ll make homemade treats and package them up for giving, and one of the things I love to give is homemade jam. Give it alone, or with a loaf of homemade bread–either way, it’s a cozy and homey gift that everyone is sure to love.
I like to make cooked jam, but I also love to make freezer jam–it’s super fast and easy, and doesn’t take any special equipment. Making jam is something I like to do in the fall, and it’s an easy make-ahead gift, because it will freeze until I’m ready to give it. It’s nice to get a head start on a few gifts!
I think homemade jam makes a lovely hostess gift…thank of all the fall and holiday parties and gatherings you’ll attend over the next few months! I visit a few ladies from my church each month, and this is the perfect gift to bring along with me. Whether it’s friends, neighbors, teachers, or family…homemade jam is a wonderful gift!
The freezer jam recipe I use is by Sure-Jell.

This darling circle tag looks adorable on top of the lid, or tied around it with twine or ribbon. When I tied it on the side, then I like to punch out a piece of scrapbook paper or kraft paper for the top. I have a 2-inch circle punch that I adore, and works perfectly for this!
I’ve created tags for several different kinds of jam, and you can download them below. I like to print on to kraft cardstock, but you can use white as well.
