I did this for my daughter & son-in-law 3 years ago, the 1st Christmas after their twin boys were born. They were buying formula in the big cans at Sams & would give me a can since I watched the babies while they worked.
So I emptied one from the bottom & filled it with tissue paper & all kinds of odds & ends like a gift card to the movies & another to their favorite place to eat, candy, etc. I sealed it & put a bow on top. When I gave it to them, I told them it was because I knew formula was so expensive to buy nowadays. My S/L was really puzzled when I told him he had to open it - the look on his face when he did was priceless!
I'm positive this was one of my first tips on this site, but it's not showing up. It's a fun prank to pull!
