View File to PrintSometimes it can be hard to find a good gift idea for Dad, Step-Dad, and Grandpa. Often what they really want is simple – like a candy stash that’s just for them. You can easily make these decorated mason jars and then fill with whatever his favorite treat is – Reese’s Pieces, nuts, M&M’s, mini-candy bars – along with the promise that no one else will touch it – even you ?.
