It’s almost that time of year again. A couple people in the family have birthdays coming up. I will ask them what they want for their birthday and the response is always the same.
“Oh NOTHING”. “There is NOTHING I really want” or “I need NOTHING’. 

They know they will get something. I’m just wired that way. I love to give. So why can’t they just give me an idea?  If I think of something myself, It is usually the wrong thing, they do not need it or it doesn’t fit. I wish for once they would give me a small hint of some things they would like to have. 
Feelings will be hurt if I literally do not get a gift. My own heart would even be broken. 

Neither one has a hobby or collects anything (not that I can afford to supply for anyways).
Honestly, they really do have enough and really dont want anything. But still........

I know they mean well and really do not want anyone spending money on unnecessary things. I get it. But surely there is something. But NOTHING. 

My sister feels the same way.
She sent me these photos of the perfect gift for those that want NOTHING.

We both had a good giggle over this. 

Wait, I think she actually bought this since the photo was taken in her car. 
Now I wonder if she really is going to give someone NOTHING. 


  1. Brilliant. I must see if I can track a jar of nothing down on this side of the world.

  2. that jar is just awesome! Although guilt would probably force me to tuck a small gift card in it. LOL

  3. This is a brilliant idea for a jar lol!

  4. I always say that too but I really mean it. : ) When people tell me that I listen to them! : )
    That jar is a great gift idea.

    1. I forgot to add that I like to give people little gifts when they least expect them, just out of the blue.

  5. I love it. It does make me smile, that is for sure. It might even be generating some ideas. I have never seen this one before...

  6. I bet it didn’t cost “Nothing” :)

  7. Gotta love it, sure made me smile!
