Giving the gift of salsa

I'd love to gift homemade salsa as a gift this year. Problem: no canning equipment. So, a few questions:

Is this possible without making a huge investment in canning equipment?
If I just refrigerated it without properly canning it, how long would it last (safely, tastewise, etc)?

Question applies for both cooked and uncooked salsa.

Thank you!!
