(please excuse Peanut's presidential placemat underneath...it's all about taking advantage of every learning opportunity!)
I purchased Christmas plates at the dollar store (these are by no means gorgeous collectibles, but are still nicer than a paper plate--and definitely more sturdy!) along with red cellophane. I had card stock and ribbon in my stash and with the ingredients for the goodies, adding it up I don't think it cost more than about $20.00 total, or about $5.00 per gift, including wrapping!
I made Hot and Spicy Chex Mix (I got all the cereal on sale and on coupon, so they were just over a $1.00 a box!), ginger snaps, and sugar cookies with buttercream frosting. A little savory and a little sweet too!
Funny little side note~I didn't think I would have everything together for him to take to work with him this morning, so I had planned on bringing the plates into his restaurant late this morning and had told him that. Well, I got everything together last night (ahead of schedule!) and I told him he could just bring them in with him to work and he looked disappointed. Of course, I got all defensive and told him it would be easier for him to bring them in as he didn't have a two year old to
Don't worry sweet Hubs, I don't think there will be a question of who put these together. ;)
