The final speedy handmade gift is this mason jar candle. My friend Rebecca and I made these last month and they ended up being pretty simple (but very messy). We gave them to coworkers and other friends.
We used small mason jars for the vessel (although you could use anything). Rebecca picked up the wax at Ben Franklin and I had some essential oils from green cleaning supplies. We used cinnamon and peppermint for ours.
