    Great gift idea for HIM

    just had to pass this on. Saw it on a thread someplace
    Get one of those canning jars or use an old mayo on.
    Like those food jar. fill in layers of nuts, Seasonal M&M's
    and dried fruit. Men like that kind of thing. Top with a nice
    bow and add a homemade ornament.
    Just a thought.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Sounds good. Thanks for sharing.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    just not at the same time...
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    This would be the perfect gift for my DH, he loves nibbles, especially nuts of any kind (guess that's why he married me).

    you can customize it for all the guys. now especially since you can get M&M's in all colors. also jellybellies.
    what a great snack idea for christmas or valentines day. a great way to think of him. you can decorate the jar to look like a football field, golf course ect. use that blackboard paint too, tie a bow of sports or concert tickets to it ect.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Fantastic idea! My great nephew is heading off to college in August and this would be great for him and his roommate. I can customize it with his school logo!

    Our young sons sat in the yard, cracked and shelled walnuts for their dad one year. They then put them in a jar especially labeled for him. He loved it. They also had mad GORP mix. Since they are grown and out of the house, he has to make the mix for himself. He still enjoys various trail mixes.

    Nice ideas ladies. Will keep this in mind. My dad would have loved this. (Sadly, he is no longer with us.) But, that doesn't mean it won't be right for someone else. Will file this idea away for a later date.
