Turn the right-sized jar into drinking glasses for large cocktails. Jar up gifts and give them to your friends. Create homemade wax candles. Turn them into pen holders or use jars to organise other items on your desk, like paperclips or spare change. Store your flowers in a vase created from a large jar. Better yet, don't buy gift baskets: just use your jars to store items that fit. Surprise yourself. There's really a lot you can do if you consider reusing jars instead of tossing them in the trash.
