We all have stressors during the holidays and this month the Michaels Makers were asked to come up with creative and fun holiday hacks and tips to help relieve some of that stress and make holiday entertaining and prepping fun!
We were given 5 common holiday hiccups to choose from and I went with Quick gift ideas for teachers, the post man, a friend, a co-worker, etc. I had a lot of fun coming up with clever, easy, & cute gift ideas that anyone will love. Plus they are all quick and easy to throw together. With just one stop shopping at Michaels…making Holiday shopping a breeze!
Gift Idea #1:
A Coloring Kit! These adult coloring books are all the rage! We are loving these Coloring books (but big kids can use them too…even my 6 year old likes to help me color mine). I found the best selection of these coloring books at Micheals. I loved this Four Seasons one. They are all so pretty! I think this would make a great gift to give to a friend or co-worker.
I made a cute printable tag to go along with this gift! Wishing you a COLORFUL Christmas. You can Download it HERE.
Tie up the coloring book, colored pencils (I love this set I found at Michaels), and add a pretty bow with the tag.
Gift Idea #2:
A Hot Cocoa kit for two! I found these burlap bags at Micheals for $1.99…and new they would make the perfect way to wrap up and deliver my Hot Cocoa kits in!
A great thing to add to the Hot Cocoa Kit gift is a yummy Chocolate Covered Hot Cocoa Spoon! So easy and fun to make!
Just take Wilton candy melts, melt according to package…dip your spoons, sprinkle peppermint and sprinkles for a yummy added touch to the gift!
This would make a great surprise to leave for the mailman, the milk man, the bus driver, etc. Its a quick treat to share:)
Add my free Printable “WARMEST HOLIDAY WISHES” tag to tie up the bag.
Gift Idea #3:
Cookie Kit Gift! Sharing a sweet and quick gift idea today. You can throw this together in seconds and add my free printable “Sweet Christmas” tag. This would make a great gift for teachers, or a neighbor.
At Michaels Craft Store I found these ceramic mini loaf dishes, cute cookie cutters and pretty Wilton sprinkles.
