Most of yall know we went to Disney World with my daughter's cheer team a few weeks ago. It was an amazing trip that I've still yet to post about BUT we'll get to that on a different day! :-) Before we left, we wanted to get all the girls on her team a little "safe travels/time passer" gift...and what's better than GUM!
We spotted the Extra® Gum Spearmint & Extra® Gum Polar Ice® 35-stick packs in the check out line at Walmart. Did you hear that? 35 sticks! These new Extra® 35-stick packs have SO much gum in it! There's over 2 packs in these new packs & the first time my husband saw it, he was like WHAT?!?! Now THAT's a pack of gum!
I grabbed not 1, not 5, but 14 packs! Each girl needed their own pack, right?!?! One of the best features in these new 35-stick packs is the durable, recycled packaging. Hard plastic case with a flip top lid!....This was gonna be perfect for the girls (or parents) to just throw in their Disney Park bags & head out!
I made a printable to attach to each gum gift, showing all the different reasons they NEED this gum! I chose these sayings because I thought it would be specific to our trip to Disney, but I think this applies to just about everyone on any given day. :-)
Our school store sells these cute little tags called Spirit Sticks. They happened to have an overabundance of CHEER Spirit Sticks, so I bought those, wrapped each pack of gum with rainbow yarn and added on the spirit stick & printable.
Putting the gifts together took no time at all! Just wrap the gum in ribbon or yarn just like you would a gift box, add whatever you want & it's done!
Izzy handed out the gifts to all the girls at their last practice before Disney & they LOVED them! It's always important for us to remember it's better to give than to receive & we are loving Extra's® theme of "Give Extra, Get Extra."
How do you Give Extra, Get Extra? We love our cheer family & can't wait to share the love this new season. Check out these other great ideas here with the new Extra® 35-stick packs.
