"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!"
Serving Size: 1 (3 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"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"
"I am SO using this idea! Love the idea of filling it with love or kisses etc. too."
"I just love this idea! Especially farmchick's idea - I will be using this for my grandmother, our kids' great-grandmother when we visit her up in Arkansas. She already has a lot of bath stuff (she doesn't need more), she is on a special diet (no sugars, etc), she isn't into electronic gadgets. This is perfect! Thanks so much!"
"This will be perfect for my dad!!! He's not just saying that he wants nothing,he is even announcing it a couple of weeks before his birthday! Probably that's his way of making sure he'll get something.Well,on the next opportunity ,he'll get a Jar of Nothing!"
"Haha this is perfect for those hard-to-please people in your life! I believe in going green in this house, so I reuse almost every glass jar that comes in...reuse a jar for this why dontcha! ;)"
"Just too cute! Thanks for the great idea and the belly roar!"
"Fabulous!!! I love it. You just most of my hristmas gift giving!!!!"
"Oh my, this is hysterically funny! My mother used to reply "Nothing" at every gift-giving opportunity when asked what she'd like - I so wish I'd seen this years ago. Of course, I'd always get her something, but when I ran out of ideas, she was of no help. It would have been funny to see the look on her face when presented, for once, with exactly what she'd asked for... followed up by a "real" gift, of course. And she'd have TOTALLY gotten the humor. (She's the original source of my warped sense of humor!) Thanks for the smile today! :D"
