Gift in a jar: The thought counts

I’m a big fan of gifts in a jar because of how versatile jars are and, the potential to create a thoughtful gift.  Gifts in a jar are also quick and easy to create. More importantly, they are the perfect choice when you want to gift something ‘just like that’; when you aren’t are gifting for a specific occasion or event.

Gift in a jar: Jar of happy thoughts

When it comes to gifting, the common, underlying premise is that ‘it’s the thought that counts’ . I would say, if done the right way, yes. I’ve taken this basic premise and coupled it with the gifts in a jar concept for this ‘Jar of happy thoughts‘. It’s a variation of the  ‘A dåse of love’ and ‘Jar of self-esteem‘ gift ideas I’ve shared earlier.

This gift in a jar is a sure-shot pick-me-up for friends, family members or colleagues going through tough times and, who need all the love and support they can get. It’s the perfect way to help them remain positive and let them know, you’re thinking of them.

All you have to do is, find a ceramic or glass jar and label it Jar of happy thoughts for X‘. Then write down as many happy and positive thoughts you can think of, on small scrolls of paper and fill jar with them. Voila, your simple, but thoughtful, gift in a jar is ready.

Here are some happy thoughts to get you started.

  1. Just a thought–what if the jar is transparent, the little scrolls are all of different colors and you paint a bright smiley on the jar. Does that make it happier to look at, even if you don’t reach for an inspiring/uplifting little note?
