What you’ll need:

  • Mason Jars (What I Used!)
  • 1/2 cup Apple Cider (store bought because, obviously)
  • 1/2-1cup Water
  • 1 Clementine per Jar
  • 1TBSP Vanilla Extract
  • 2-3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Cranberries
  • Pine Branches (Swipe These From Your Christmas Tree or Outside)
  • Whole Cloves (optional)
  • Gift Tags Like These + Ribbon or String


Quarter your clementines and add all of the ingredients to your mason jars, it doesn’t matter in what order, they will all be unique and beautiful. Fill with water. Seal and refrigerate until your ready to gift!

Add these instructions to your gift tags: Pour contents of jar into a saucepan, add a jar full of water, simmer on the stove adding water as often as needed to keep ingredients hydrated. Christmas in a Jar Potpourri is not for eating!
