Small Savvy Gift Ideas

I know everyone's budget is tight right now.  The whole concept of 12 Days is that you can send in a small thoughtful item that makes a HUGE impact in a teacher's day.  Take my friend, Troye, over at For the Joy of Food - she is doing the 12 Days this year and today she sent in a whisk filled with Hershey Kisses and a note that said "We wish you a Merry Kissmass".  How CUTE is that?  There are several websites that seem to have the same list of these savvy snack & small gift ideas that are really clever and thoughtful.  Tip Junkie (you can click here to see her site ) lists 24 of these ideas along with the coordinating poem and picture - check her out!!  Below I listed a few from the sites I visted today to give you an idea of what I am talking about.  Several blogs out there also have cute FREE printable tags too - if you like a certain poem or tag line just google it to see if you can find a free printable for it!!  Post a comment if you have some that you love!!  Happy Holidays!
  1. Wire Wisk - (Filled with Chocolate kisses) "We WHISK you a Merry KISSmas!!"
  2. Loaf of Bread - For being there when you were "Kneaded", for "Rising" to the occasion, large or small. For never "Loafing" on the job, for helping others to "Heel" with TLC. No matter how you "Slice it", you do a terrific job loving Others. Merry Christmas!!
  3. Jolly Ranchers - Have a Holly"Jolly" Christmas!!
  4. Chex Party Mix - Remember Santa "Chex" his list twice to see who's been naughty or be good for goodness sake!! Merry Christmas!!


  1. You KNOW I LOVE the bread one! I wasn't going to do bread because it seemed too bland, but that makes it PERFECT! thank you, Kimberly! You are amazing!

  2. OK first of all YOUR loaves of bread are NEVER considered bland or dull gifts!! And yes, you MUST do it!!
