We give out a lot of gift cards- I enjoy making the gift more personalized and having the monkeys get involved with making gifts.
We purchased mugs, hot cocoa, and candy canes.
We then made non denominational ornaments and wrapped up little gift packages with a gift card tucked inside each mug.
We started off by collecting pine cones and painting them.
We then glue gunned a piece of ribbon to the base and called it an ornament.
I don't believe in cellophane- if you have any ideas for clear wrap that is better for the environment- please let me know.
For the sake of identifying what gift card was in the gift and to keep production lines moving on our dinning table I opted to use the clear wrap.
I would love to get a gift like this- Wouldn't you?
