I recently went to a White Elephant gift exchange and I had no idea what to do at first. I went to Target and got things that I needed to get and then wandered around to see if there was anything that fit the category. It was an all ladies gift exchange so I was able to be as girly as I possibly wanted. But for the life of me couldn’t find anything that struck my fancy. Which is really weird for me, especially at Target. The only thing that I found that I could use were some mason jars. I love mason jars, and they were on sale. PERFECT! …now what do I put in it. I reverted to Pinterest. But for some reason I didn’t like any of the ideas that I found.
I have been frequenting dollar stores lately, and have been able to find all sorts of goodies for only a dollar. I decided that I would go see what I could find and then pile some things into my jar. I ended up coming up with an Office Emergency Survival Kit… in a jar.
The only thing I didn’t get at the dollar store were the 99 Bananas and 99 Watermelons bottles. I went to Total Wine and picked from their large selection of shooters. Everything you could need in an emergency just while you are away from the house but is convenient to keep at your desk or in the car. The only thing that couldn’t fit in the jar were the wet wipes, I just stuck those in the gift back with them. I printed off some tags (I couldn’t decide on a color at first), tied a pretty bow and voila! Simple and easy gift, perfect for last minute.
