Novelty Gift - a Jar of " Nothing! "

Total Time

As soon as I saw this idea, I knew I had to post it here! Print or write this onto a piece of card : Didn't you say "nothing"? When you were asked what you wanted for your Birthday, Anniversary, Graduation or Christmas. Don't you remember saying NOTHING? Well this time someone heard you & searched high and low to find this perfect gift for you. I chose a French Kilner jar as they are pretty & very useful but you could really use any jar you like!


  1. Cut a small piece of paper - large enough to fit your saying on. It's nice to flute the edges or shape then slightly.
  2. Write or print the saying onto the paper & glue it to the jar.
  3. Tie a piece of ribbon around the lid & form into a bow.

Cute idea...when my little sister was in second grade they did something like this, but blew kisses in a jar. So it was a jar full of love. Mom still has it on a shelf and my sister is 35 years old.

This is hysterical! Give 'em just what they asked for!!! (I think a real gift afterwards is a good idea, though.)

I love the idea of saving kisses; what a great idea for kids to give on the holidays; I'm doing this with my DGD to give to her Mom this year. And maybe even my DGSs who are older for their Mom as they are growing up so very fast
