This time of year I am always creating and crafting and coming up with gifts to give to friends, family and neighbors. We can't give huge gifts to everyone, and some people we simply want to show them we care. And so for these people, these friends, neighbors, bus drivers and dance teachers, I've come up with an Extra Fun Holiday Gift Idea! Using Extra gum. 🙂 It is really simple and makes an inexpensive gift. It is also a perfect last-minute holiday gift idea or stocking stuffer!
I headed off to WalMart to pick up a few packs of Wrigley's Extra gum. I thought that their flavors of Polar Ice, Spearmint and Peppermint would be perfect to use for this holiday season! Plus I love that their gum is sugar free.
I threw them in my cart (along with a half dozen other things like ribbon) and went home to create a cute printable to go along with it!
I created a super cute printable that says "to an Extra special friend" to use with this gift! You can download your own copy for FREE at the end of this blog post!
You will simply print your tags and trim them. Punch a hole and attached the tag to your gum with a pretty ribbon! So simple and super cute!
And if you're feeling really crafty, you can even make a stocking out of paper to gift your Extra gum in! I used my Silhouette to cut out a really cute stocking using red and white paper! Then I simply hot glued the two sides of the stocking together along the edges and inserted a pack of gum!
Wouldn't this be a really fun way to package a simple holiday gift for a friend or neighbor!?
And while you are over there, be sure to take a minute to check out Extra Gum on facebook.
Now I want to know, what do you give to your friends and neighbors for the holidays?
