My daughter and I did this same thing just Christmas past. We were strapped really bad for cash and could not come up with money for gifts. In the past we use to give her $50 to do her own Christmas shopping for Grandma,s and pa's aunts and uncles. We found this way of making our own was not only fun but much more appreciated than those 2 dollar trinkets. We have been collecting different types of jars since last year to use this year and even using scrap paper from cards and gifts, fancy store bags and whatever else we can use to put the directions on.
Great list of items, I do many of the same. I use the old tin coffee cans for storing or gifting dog treats of stuffed animals. Clean them up, take an old christmas cards and adhere it to the outside and wala you are done.
I have found that my daughter likes to open the plastic ones and find her stuffed animals all jammed up in side them, just put the face up so when she opens it, the stuffed animal is looking at her.
awh goodnatured. that is so cute. i dont really buy the tin ones & for some reason I always had a problem with them getting wet somehow and rusting on me! I only drink folgers coffee & theirs comes in the plastic cans.
I've actually had my family save me a TON of those small similac baby formula cans for reusing. I'm going to spraypaint the outsides & adhere a pretty label to it. That is where all of the gifted christmas treats are going.. I'm actually saving MORE money by having a cookie exchange party. So, I will only have to make 1 kind of treat [less ingredients to buy, less to make = saved energy]. i'll knock gifts off my list AND have my holiday cookies crossed off the to-do list.
if there are any cans left over after all that, they will be reused for wrapping certain gifts for my present-guessers in my family [marcus & my sister!]. I have to trick them or they guess EVERYTHING they are getting. totally spoiling the surprise, of course. lol
great idea with the similac cans, you can do some things with baby food jars too. like make reindeer food, you just put sugar and some glitter in it and have the kids put it out in the snow. You can make these and give them to the kids early so they can put it out for the reindeer.
