Canning Jar Gift Idea

Jenele brought in another gift idea to share with us. She is so clever.
The back story: Jenele's 83 year old step father told her a few years ago that he didnt like 'serious' gifts. That would certainly give me pause. But not Jenele.
Her father in law loves to can and this not serious canning themed gift is perfect.
She picked up a flat of 12 "quilted" canning jars, paper and ribbon, and had a blast picking out 12 different fun things to put in the jars.

Using canning stickers she wrote short little riddles in the top of each jar so he could guess what was inside. Some of the goodies were chocolate covered almonds, Goldfish crackers, and 2 little stuffed mice for their cats.
I think this is such a great idea. Way to go Jenele!
Jenele says this would also be a great 12 Days of Christmas or Advent Countdown idea.
