Secret Santa Gift Ideas for Work
I don’t work outside the home but there’s one time of year I wish I did, Chhristmas. I think I love the Chrustmas parties, the secret santa gift drops, and of course the crazy gift exchanges that happen. While I don’t get to participate in any Secret Santa fun I can dream about it right? And the mulling spices make a wonderful homemade Secret Santa gift for co-workers. At least I think they would.
Palmer Food Swap Worthy
I’d spent a lot of time pinning tasty things back awhile ago when I was sick so when it came time to actually PICK something for Palmer Food Swap, it shouldn’t have been so hard. But it was because as usual I over thought the entire process. I wanted something people could take home and savor later. I wanted it to be holiday-worthy. Share-worthy. And definitely SWAP worthy, because nothing is as bad as taking something cool to swap and having no one want to swap with you. Or just have a slow-moving item.
After completely over thinking it for a whole month, I literally had a lot of time on my hands, I was stumped. Then one day I logged on to Pinterest and there was this gorgeous shot of mulling spices and it hit me that I wanted to make mulling spices for my swap item. It may have taken a long time to choose but it was such a successful swap item I’m going to say it’s a winner!
Boxes and Bags Optional
And because I’m a super lucky woman, and I married a great guy, my husband make these beautiful boxes for me. I’ll share how to make those in a future post if anyone is interested. Mainly we’d been given a box like it and we copied it by simply drawing around it and prefolding them. We also included a small handmade bag and linen string to hold the spices in the mulling liquid. All in all, it was a successful swap item as I finished swapping early and had swappers asking for more.
