Nothing gets me quite as excited as gift giving! I just love finding the right thing for the right person and creating fun new ideas. Today’s gift was inspired by Extra gum. I love the idea of giving gum because it is something you can enjoy without guilt, haha! Of course, we have to throw in some chocolate because, well, it’s Christmas. I also love that after the treats have been consumed the gift receiver will still have a sweet little glass candy jar to keep!
Here is what you need:
-short vases or jars of your choice
-single packs of assorted Extra gum (I used polar ice, spearmint and peppermint)
-a bag of hugs
-a bag of your favorite flavor of Kisses
-cute Christmas straws or sucker sticks
I got all of my stuff at Walmart. I got enough to do four gifts and it cost me approximately $20! Can’t beat that. You will find the extra gum on the racks right by where you check out!
Next step, assembly! Simply fill your jars with hugs, kisses and gum! I stuck my gum out at the top so you could see the “Extra”. To make your sign, just type the saying “wishing you EXTRA hugs & kisses this holiday season” using your favorite fonts and print. Cut and glue your saying onto your Christmas paper and cut a slit in the top and bottom middle so that you can stick your straw through! Doesn’t get easier than that right?
Happy gift giving everybody!
