This year I decided to put together "snowy day emergency kits" for some families on our gift giving list. I think everyone is struggling to stick to a budget when it comes to holiday gifts and I found this to be fun + economical.
I designed "snowy day emergency kit" tags and sewed several drawstring bags of various sizes [depending on the contents to go inside]. Although I love wrapping paper, drawstring bags are great since they can fit all sorts of odd-sized gifts and are reusable.
I bought one board game for each family and wrapped them up in my favorite IKEA double-sided wrapping paper. This wrapping paper has the perfect weight [I hate really thin, flimsy wrapping paper] and I love the fact that you can create folds to show the contrasting side [no need for ribbons in my opinion].
And who doesn't love some Dagoba hot chocolate + homemade marshmallows [from Whimsy + Spice]? I also added a nice cozy throw for one family...the possibilities are endless. Hope the snowy day emergency kits are put to good use!
