Gift Ideas A Homesteader Will Be Proud Of
As a homesteader, I always try to live within my means and make pretty much everything I need. So when I give gifts, I make sure it’s something they can both use and treasure at the same time. Even if it’s something as simple and as plain as mason jars, or a bottle of memories! These homesteader’s gift ideas are easy, inexpensive, and some can even be done at the last minute. While others may take a little planning, they’re all simple enough for anyone to do.
1. Mason Jars
A true homesteader can never have too many mason jars. For canning, crafts and a whole lot of other homesteading skills. Fill it with some of your homestead products or give it empty just make sure to be creative with your wrapping to make even more special.
If you give them some mason jars might as well give them also a Can-Do Canning Kit. I’m sure they’ll love it! It will make homesteading a lot easier and productive.
You never know when you need a fire around the homestead. And a homesteader is always ready! I truly believe that anyone would appreciate this kind of gift, especially the outdoorsy, as they are well aware that building a fire is an essential survival skill.
One of the best things about being a homesteader is how creative you can get with canning. I bet you’ll become the teacher’s pet if you surprise him/her with these bread and butter pickles. It could be a perfect lunchtime companion.

A true homesteader loves and enjoys the happy chirping of birds. Help your fellow homesteader attract their beautiful visitors by giving them one of these squirrel proof bird feeders.
Winter isn’t the best time to see the flowering beauty of nature, so terrarium plants become the perfect way of bringing natural beauty indoors. Choose a beautiful vase that suits your recipient and a terrarium plant that will remind them of the true beauty of nature.
