As for presents, take the lid off, then place various tea bags (maybe different flavors), lemons and/or a lemon juice bottle inside. Place a bow on top and you are set! Instant present!
To save money and lose weight on drinks, buy tea bags (I prefer black tea) at your local dollar store. At Dollar Tree, boxes of 100 tea bags go for, well, a dollar! Place 10 tea bags in a sun tea jar filled with water and leave in the sun (actually, you do not even need bright sun) for about 6 hours. Drink it unsweetened or with lemon to taste just like a restaurant's tea...including no calories! There is even a book called &&The Ultimate Tea Diet&& by Mark "Dr. Tea" Ukra about this..
Finally, to cheer you up, sometimes in the middle of winter, people get seasonal affective disorder. Well, wouldn't a cool glass of iced tea in the middle of winter cheer you up? I know I would!
So, that is my scoop on the subject of sun tea jars.
