A Jar of Nothing Gift

An all time favorite, the jar of nothing is a great gag gift idea.

A Jar of Nothing Gift

What you need

Empty jar
Sticky label paper or Paper and
Clear Glue


For this project all you need is an empty jar.

You can print this saying out onto some adhesive label paper suitable for your printer or print it onto normal plain paper. Use some clear craft glue to adhere it to the jar.

If you want to go all out you can add some ribbon to the jar and even box it up for a great gag gift.

The Saying

Did you say nothing?

When you were asked what you wanted for

Birthday, Anniversary, Graduation or Christmas.

Don’t you remember saying NOTHING

Well this time someone heard you, searched

high and low and found this perfect gift for you.

Note: These are great for Christmas fund raising stalls.

  1. HAHA. This is perfect! :D

  2. Mrs Shirley Clement says:

    but they’d be a bit put out if that was all. My grownup son and daughters give each other nothing and spend some money on something for themselves that they know what they will want. Strange family I raised.

  3. ive asked my brother a million times what he wants for his bithday or christmas so i just dont give him any thing or i give him like 5 bucks because he says nothing

  4. I love it but I would have to say Just Kidding and give a real gift

  5. This is really cute and a fantastic idea. How many times have I asked my friends or been asked myself what do you want for . . . . . and have answered “nothing”. Can’t wait to use this as a matter of fact I need this for a gift in a few days. Thanks for a cute idea!

  6. cute!!


  8. For all you people who think this is mean: it’s a gag gift, not your ONLY gift. Yes, it would be a mean move to give them only this. But I think the point is you give this, and then a real gift.

  9. This is a funny idea-of course I hope no one really gives it instead of a real gift, that probably wouldn’t be nice.

  10. “What do you want for Christmas?”
    “Oh, nothing.”
    (Christmas Day)
    “Here’s your jar of nothing!!!”

  11. Love it!!
