Christmas is less than two weeks away and you need to have some quick and easy gifts on hand for teachers, neighbors, Sunday School classmates or even unexpected guests ... what do you do? You whip up a couple of these fabulous gifts and have them ready! By now I think you've guessed that our theme for Fabulous Friday this week on the Sisters in Stamping blog is quick and easy gift ideas... we're here to help you keep your sanity during the craziness of the holidays. Think of it as stamp therapy!!
I put some chocolate-covered pretzels in a cello bag and added a hand-stamped tag and then dropped them into a cute Christmas mug... start to finish it took me about 15 minutes (and that was mostly for the tag!). Can't get much quicker and easier than that, right?! Did you happen to pick up some of the gusseted cello bags from our Clearance Rack Blitz this week? You get 25 (and they're food-grade!) for just $1.59... if you hurry, you can still get some before they run out!!
I cheated and picked up a bag of Rold Gold dark dipped chocolate covered pretzels (YUM!) but you could certainly make home-baked goodies and fill the cello bags. I also love to bargain shop for Christmas mugs when they go 75% off right after Christmas and have them for next year just for this very purpose.
Thanks for stopping by today! For even more quick and easy gift inspiration, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog later this afternoon.
