Here’s a very simple gift for anyone on your list.
We won big at our town Christmas Celebration (I’m talkin’ grand prize kind of big. It blessed our socks off, folks!). It was such a great surprise that we chose to turn some of that money back into blessing others.
I purchased some $5 gift cards from the local coffee shop. I also asked for a cup for each card, because I think it makes cute packaging.
We stopped at another local store to buy some candy for filling.
Put the envelope in first.
Fill with candy and snap the lid on.
Some of the cups have ornaments or other things in them. After looking at these I wish I would’ve bought more candy for filling (or eaten less while we were filling them). I also wish I would’ve bought candy canes to stick in the straw holes. That’s what I did a few years ago, and it really adds a nice touch.
As a bonus, the kids got to help with this project. What kid doesn’t love playing with candy, right? We did color sorting, patterning, adding, multiplication and division. Oh, and a little taste testing. For quality control, ya know?
