So feeling the need to invest in them, I decided to give Christmas baskets this year. On a limited budget with 7 neighbors surrounding us I did what every thrifty woman does......heads to her mother in laws basement for great things to decorate said baskets with. Then I proceeded to scour Pinterest for inexpensive gift ideas I could make. So thought I had come across the perfect cute gift to make - I soon found out I am not as talented as said blogger and my jars of cookie mix looked retarded. So, I changed gears and made them my own way and they turned out far better. So this is my version of the cowboy cookie jar gift.
