‘Tis the season for tons of holiday parties, and arriving up empty-handed is not an option. Sure, you can show up with wine—but so will everyone else, leaving your host with five bottles they will probably end up re-gifting.

Or take the DIY route and make a gift out of a classic recipe-in-a-jar. Here are some of our favorite ideas that guarantee you’ll be invited back again.
