Homemade Pumpkin Gingerbread (Perfect Mason Jar Gift Idea)

Nov6

This Homemade Pumpkin Gingerbread Recipe is so incredibly delicious and makes the PERFECT Mason Jar Gift since it's so unique.
On arrival, I tore open that adorable little snowman box. It must have been torture for the poor postman to hand off because the smells emanating from the box told me something inside would be delicious!

It did not disappointed. This deliciously Homemade 3 Ginger Pumpkin Gingerbread was one of the most unique homemade gifts I have ever received, plus it was a gift that kept on giving.

Not only was there one piece of my friend’s famous Homemade Pumpkin Gingerbread to whet my appetite (yes, one of those wonderful family recipes), but then she included the dry ingredients so that I could make my own, complete with a printable recipe enclosed.

It was adorable and so unique. I love giving any kind of Mason Jar gifts, but since this was such an atypical jar recipe, it meant that much more.

What I love about this is the many ways it can be dressed up. This can be a frugal, yet gorgeous gift. Stop in at some of your favorite thrift stores (or shop your house) for unusual baskets or wire containers. You can spray paint them to match a theme and design it for any theme.

I’m typically not a Gingerbread lover, but this recipe has completely altered my previous opinion, and I know you will love it!

So incredibly moist and delicious, this is a recipe you will want to make again and again.

  1. I’ve always loved gingerbread – it reminds me of coming in after school to the wonderful aroma of my Mum baking. She served it with ‘citrus fluff’ and it was wonderful – I’ve used her recipe forever! I’ll have to give this recipe a try. I just picked up some really nice crystallized ginger at the Amish bulk food store – it’s good to keep on hand for upset tummies as well as for making yummy desserts!

    Heather – oh yes, I didn’t even think of getting it at a bulk food store. That is a great idea. Now I must ask, what is citrus fluff? It definitely sounds like something I’d LOVE! :) Have a wonderful day. I always appreciate seeing your sweet name pop up in the comments.

  2. That is really cute! Did you she pack in the pumpkin or did you have to purchase it? Just wondering how you could package it all together so the person didn’t have to visit the grocery store in order to make the bread. Thanks for sharing!

    No, she just included the dry ingredients because she shipped it, but if you were giving it to someone close by, you could easily include the can of pumpkin in the wire basket with a cute bow around it.
