Yummy Nice Neighbor Gifts

A photo of dark chocolate squares popped in my Pinterest feed which gave me the idea to fill our mini pizza boxes with delights for the neighbors.

I also had orange flavored tootsie rolls on hand so decided to add those with a nod towards traditions of yesterday when fresh oranges were placed in Christmas socks.

Our coordinating products made assembling the boxes quick and easy. I assembled the boxes while the chocolate was cooling. Deliveries will be made shortly!12 19 2017 4-001

The chocolate recipe is 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1 cup natural cocoa powder, 4 tablespoons honey and 1/2 tsp vanilla from Health Nut Nation. She even has a how to video. Thanks Alison for providing a great resource.

Merry Christmas!

Pile o’ Christmas Cheer

It always starts with someone in mind. A person may need cheering up or wishing birthday greetings. This time, I had my senior living communities to design for. What would I gift them for a little Christmas cheer when I visit in December?

The package needs to be easily opened and can be reusable. I let people know they can enjoy the treat inside, refill it and re-gift it. It needs to be festive and fun and easy to assemble since I have many to make.

So I started gathering piles of supplies I had on hand, designed the favor and then ordered the supplies needed to make about 300. Each resident and staff will receive one. They were a big hit with the first communities I visited yesterday.

If we cross paths in December, I’ll gift you one too. In case we don’t, here is a Youtube video showing how to assemble plus a few other ideas at the end of the video.

 

Happy Holidays!
