Last minute gift

Now that Christmas is over I can show you a last minute gift I threw together for each of my kids. A year or so ago I saw this idea and thought it was pretty cute but never got around to doing it.

For each I bought:
a can of pork and beans
a can of rootbeer
and assorted candy



I enclosed this tag


I found these cute little boxes of m&m's with nice on one side and naughty on the other


Of course I couldn't help having the naughty side showing.  Silly gift but it got at least a slight chuckle. I think I may have even been called weird.

This is just the most fun! It seems in any big family there is always one person who does a wacky gift or something, and this really makes wonderful memories through the years, long after we have forgotten that scarf we opened.

Marg said...

That is an hysterical gift especially the naughty side. Well done.

i would say weird and wonderful at the same time and a gift i would love. i like everything in the basket. great idea...fun and useful.this is a gift my hubby would like, except i would put reese's peanut butter cups. he loves pork and beans and if i don't want to cook is happy with just eating beans and crackers...

I'd say 'COOL!' Fun idea for kids' gifts and even my hubby deserves one as he LOVES A&W!

I think it's cute. What a great idea. It's something that you won't forget either. Pass me some M&Ms.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

That is fun - and silly. Why do we think only little kids like goofy gifts - Big kids do goofy too!
