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. :-)

I gathered all my supplies & got to work!  I cut the printables to size, rounded the corners & punched a hole in the white space of each card.

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.
