Christmas Gifts on a Counselor's Budget (approximately $12 per gift)

I am always looking for cute gift ideas for coworkers, neighbors, coaches, teachers, etc...  This year I have decided to do "winter survival kits" in a jar.  These are super easy to make and are easy on the wallet. Each jar can cost as little as $12.00! (Amazon prices change by the minute so these prices may change).  I found the idea at southernstateofmindblog.com.  Head over to her blog to check out some of her other ideas.  This is The Holiday Survival Kit in a Mason Jar that inspired my own jars:
