Picture of Glass bottle gifts
Yep, pretty self explanatory.
You will need the following:
-A six or four pack of a beverage that comes in glass bottles (Non-Alcoholic would probably be best so your great aunt muriel who never drinks doesn't faint at the site of you giving her a gift in old Bud Light bottles and forever thinks of you as a heathen child.)
-A friend (or just yourself) to help you drink them all. Save all the caps, and gingerly take them off. Save the caddy it comes in.
-Pliers
Optional/Pick at least something from this list unless you just want to give them empty bottles.
-Red and Green hard candies
-hot cocoa
-Marshmallows
-Peppermint candy canes
-Any random goodie you can think of that would fit inside a glass bottle.
-Ribbon
-Mod podge
-Festive looking paper.
-Acetone nail polish remover and a rag (for removing any labels painted onto the bottles.

Step 1: Clean and dry your bottles

For heavens sake PLEASE make sure your bottles are super clean and TOTALLY DRY before you put anything into them.
M&M's and water do not mix well and it will ruin your gift and make the recipient of it probably cry and it's all because you didn't wait for them to dry out.

Also, Did I mention you need to save the caps that you didn't do that weird bendy thing with your hands and shove them into the bottle after you drank them?
And the caddy too, You saved it, right?

And if you want to remove any painted on labels now is the time to do it. Douse a rag in some acetone nail polish remover, wrap it around the label and let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour.
Removes rag and wipe away label.
Clean it so it doesn't reek of a nail salon. Candy and nail salon fumes are probably not a very jolly mixture.

Double check again to make sure everything is clean and dry, then move on to the next step!

Do you just wash out the bottles, or clean them like you would a mason jar (in boiling water)?
This is a genius idea, btw.

Sorry, I just now am getting to answering this!
I just washed them out with soap and water, and made certain no soap remained in them. You could probably boil them as well. They were a hit with the family and friends at Christmas time. :0)
Nice! I really like the idea of filling them up with candy!

Me too!! And basically any candy works, if they don't like chocolate, use skittles.
Or oooohh! Nerds!! :0D
Ooh, or the Altoids mints. I have a ton of them because I buy them to make things with the tins :p

Hmm, I can imagine doing enough hot cocoa (or I have a chai mix I make) so that I could write, "Add 10oz of hot milk or water, cover top, and shake." So it could actually be drunk in the bottle. Neat idea, thanks!

That is a really good idea!

how many grams of m&ms did you have to buy to fill a coke bottle
amandaggogo (author)  altosax641 year ago
Not sure? I just bought the bags of red and green M&Ms, used one bag for 2 bottles. it just depends upon how big or small the bags of candy and the bottles themselves are!

With a bottlecapper you can seal them as they used to. I ordered one online at a local brewery supply store, for around 25 euros, and a bag of 500 plain caps for around 10
