@Redroc_13:  FH loves maple syrup whiskey. He gets it in a huge bottle and could be poured into bottles. He tried making maple syrup whiskey but it was a bit of a fail. 

Maple flavored cider or tea?

could you fill them with a liquor like baileys or something?  maybe you’re not allowed to do that…i’m not sure.

maple rock candy, poprocks, loose leaf tea (friends of mine gave out little teabags they made with a custom tea blend in them called ‘our special blend’ it was cute)…i’m out of ideas..

I was thinking some sort of liquor, like a boubon or even a dark rum.  At least that’s what I’D want in my little maple leaf jar! 🙂

@Redroc_13:  Are there any tiny sized candies you could fill the jar with? Maybe in your wedding colors or red, the color of a maple leaf (in the fall!). Or you could go with bigger jars and fill them with dry ingredients for a recipe and a note with directions (that might be a LOT of work). You could also get a maple leaf ornament instead of a jar and put the ribbon on it.

Spices and fancy sea salts? Like maybe multicolored peppercorns, pink salt, nice seasonings…. or hmmm…. loose tea could be cool too.

ETA: Hot fudge, or caramel? I think I’m just hungry.

Got to admit my first thoughts were Maple Syrup and Maple Whiskey (Crown Royal Maple)

BUT I am afraid that neither of these are going to be INEXPENSIVE Choices… how big are the jars in ml or ounces ?

Plus Maple Whiskey is going to appeal to probably a smaller audience than Maple Syrup would

I would do hard candies of some sort. Maple candies would be amazing, but I don’t think it HAS to be maple flavoured. Being canadian or being married in Canada is enough of a connection, I think. 

One other thing I’ve seen: homemade jam. I received this as a favour at a wedding I went to, and it was AWESOME!! The bride made it herself. Just fantastic. You could use something typically Canadian in the jam, like saskatoons. Not sure if the jars are the right type of jars for this or not  though.
