cigarrette boxes- you can make ornaments out of them. Wrap them up like presents to hang on the tree. Or, you could glue a photo to the sides of it and decorate it.

plastic lids- not sure exactly. You can melt them into shapes, like bowls and stuff. But do it in a well ventilated area, or those fumes can be very harmful.

jars- for glass ones, you can make "snowglobes" out of them. You could use them just for storage of craft supplies. You can make lamps out of them with a lamp kit. Candles.
