I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

I wish I had a picture to post of this, but I looked and I don't seem to have one.

Anyway, a few years ago mom and I worked in the same office and we wanted to give something to everyone for Christmas in the office   - and there were at least 40 people when you added in all the part timers.  So...we made Snowman Soup "kits" -

In a bag put:
One packet of instant cocoa
a handful of mini marshmallows
one hershey kiss
one candy cane*

And then attach a card with the following poem:
Was told that you've been good this year
Always glad to hear it
With freezing weather drawing near
you'll need to warm the spirit

So here's a little snowman soup
complete with stirring stick
Add hot water and sip it slow
It's sure to do the trick!


I downloaded the snowflake font from dafont and found a cute snowman clip art to put on the tags, and I used scrapbooking paper to mount the poems on, punched a hole in the top and tied it to the bag with a ribbon.

*We also turned the candycanes into reindeer - twist a brown pipe cleaner around the curve for antlers, glue on two tiny wiggle eyes, and a small (red) pom pom on the very tip of the short end for a nose.

--
there's also the other variant - a bag of "snowman poop" .  It's just a bag filled with mini marshmallows and the poem:
Heard you've been naughty
So here's the scoop,
All you get is...
Snowman Poop!

Thank you for this - you just solved most of my gifting for my co-workers - I'm looking at 20+ people to give something small to.

It really went over well with my office when I gave it out!
