Easy DIY Dog Treats Jar to Give as Holiday Gifts

Pinterest Hidden Image

I wanted to create an easy DIY dog treats jar for this holiday season. The keyword being EASY. As much as I may try, I am not crafty by nature. The ability to whip up a Pinterest-worthy project with little effort is not in my genes.

Plus, aren’t we all swamped this time of year? Sometimes simple is best. Especially, when it comes to gifts for pets, all the dogs care about is what’s inside the jar.

This is our first Christmas with Bea. Our little Bea is our latest rescue creature.

Weighing in at a whopping 5.6 pounds, this tiny force of nature runs the show around here. She’s hilarious, snuggly, sweet, fierce, and brings us laughter and joy on a daily basis.

She’s my lap-warmer as I work and she brightens up the whole house. We are beyond thankful to have her in our lives, so I made this dog treats jar for her.

She’ll surely share her BLUE Santa Snacks with her brothers. 😉

She’s enjoying the treats so much she now spins around and does little tricks for them. We’ve definitely found the best gift for our dogs this holiday season.

Look at those crunchy biscuits. With their cinnamon and oatmeal flavor, I’m almost tempted to take a bite.

Like all BLUE snacks, BLUE Santa Snacks have no chicken (or poultry) by-product meals and are free of corn, wheat, and soy.
