A Simple "Foodie" Gift: Cinnamon Sugar Jars

So, a few weeks ago I skipped work.  It was lovely... I played with my daughter, went out to lunch with my husband, lounged around .... wish I could do it everyday.  Anyways, I also caught the show"The Chew" for the first time - I just happened to catch a segment about homemade gifts for the Christmas season.  I've never made homemade gifts ... seeing as how I lack the "crafty" gene ... but this simple idea stuck with me.
This is a great gift, anyone can use cinnamon sugar:  in coffee, tea, cookies, or on toast ... endless, sweet possibilities!  I simply bought 4 mini Mason jars at Target, followed the recipe below, tied a ribbon around the jar with a cinnamon stick, and stuck a bow on top!  Adorable sweetness!
Enjoy this simple, homemade gift!

Cam' Mom always kept a jar of cinnamon sugar so her boys could make their own cinnamon toast.

Cute jars!
