I was at my parent’s house recently and saw a jar of sweets that my brother had sent my mum as a Get Well present, and it looked really great, crammed full of sugary goodness.
So I decided to steal the idea.
I think my brother must have ordered his jar online (it came with a very professional label, and whilst I am not doubting my brother’s label making abilities, I don’t think he made it…) but I decided to come up with my very own Make Do and Mend version…
I filled an empty kilner jar with
whatever was cheap in Lidl all the recipient’s favourite sweets, et voila!
In an ironic twist of whatever, I am actually sending this jar to my brother and his wife (will they see the irony? Let’s hope so.) and I know they are partial to the odd Nik-Nak or two as well, so I partnered this jar up with a few packets of the knobbly snack,
and packaged them all up to post.
I hope it will make them smile 🙂
PS. Now I am on a roll-I envisage jam jars filled with maltesers, alternating layers of white and milk chocolate buttons, and anything else I can fit into a jar…
