A Mother’s Day Candy Jar is the perfect gift for the mom who has everything. I mean, who doesn’t love sweets??

World's Sweetest Mom Mother's Day Candy Jar with printable tags

Every year just before Mother’s Day my sweet husband asks me what I want. I already have everything I need and want so I always have such a hard time coming up with something. I know that I never want him to spend a lot of money on me but I also know that he’s going to buy me something anyway. I know I can’t be the alone so I put together this simple and fun Mother’s Day Candy Jar that I know any mom would love to receive and any dad can throw together!

Mother's Day Candy Jar with printable tags

I always have a stash of mason jars laying around but if you don’t you can pick them up at your local craft or dollar store. What you fill the jar with is entirely up to you. Win major brownie points by filling it up with mom’s favorite candy. I designed these cute “World’s Sweetest Mom” tags just for this project. Pretty much if it’s sweet and fits in a jar, you can use these printable tags and this idea.

I also love this simple idea because it’s cute, budget-friendly and it’s something you can give out to your mom friends. I had a friend once give me flowers on Mother’s Day just because and it was so unexpected and thoughtful. I plan on blessing a few of the awesome moms in my life this year too and this candy jar would be perfect!

I love gift tags because they also double as cupcake toppers. Perhaps you are planning a Mother’s Day event, you can use these World’s Sweetest Mom tags for cupcake toppers instead.

To make the Mother’s Day Candy Jar you will need mason jars, printable tags (download below), 2.25″ scallop punch or flourish punch and baker’s twine. Oh and candy! You must have the candy! The assembly is a no-brainer. After just a few minutes you’ll have an adorable Mother’s Day gift that she is guaranteed to love!
