So you first decide who is going to receive the jar, for their birthday or some other special occasion, and then email that person's family and friends and ask them, "What do you love best about this person?"
Collect the responses on scraps of paper inside a pretty jar, and voila! A terrific gift.
When my friend Tosha told me about this gift idea, she said, "Don't we all have days where we could really use a jar full of nice thoughts about ourselves?"
I think we do!
