Ring and Run

Okay guys, it's the 10th of December... don't panic! I've been collecting great ideas all year from Pinterest for presents that cost a little and mean a lot, the best kind of gift I think! This one is new to me and I love it! It's called Ring and Run, a super way to bless your heart and teach your kids the real meaning of Christmas. To start this great tradition... have family put money in a mason jar (one that you recycle from spaghetti sauce will work just fine) throughout the holiday season. We all have extra moolah that's in bowls on the counter, in the laundry room, even in the car for quick run throughs at McDonald's!

On Christmas Eve, choose someone to bless (anonymously). Deliver by Ring and Run... and enjoy the warm fuzzies! 

Here's a great Neighbor Gift to reward that family that goes all out to decorate! A pull top can opened from the bottom can be filled with candies and decorated to the max... who wouldn't love this little surprise?

This one from Apple Valley Girl would be much appreciated... Peppermint Foot Soak! Perfect for teacher's gift, girlfriends, anyone who runs around in circles this time of year. Just imagine how good your tootsies would feel after a long, hot soak! Easy to assemble, make a trip to the Dollar Store for these cute containers and mix up a batch:

Peppermint Foot Soak
1 bag Epsom Salts (you can find these at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, even Dollar General)
Peppermint oil (in the craft section at Walmart, Hobby Lobby or Michaels)
Just mix 8-10 drops into the epsom salts and stir. Avery has free downloads for stickers HERE! A cute ribbon and a candy cane make this a gift they will

One more, this one is perfect for a lake house or the fisherman on your list! I'd do mini ones for the tree. My favorite neighbor gift is an ornament! This would be easy with a foam wreath and a hot glue gun...

I'm in the final stretch now on getting all my presents, then it's time to wrap~

  2. I love the cash jar idea a la Christmas jars. I was the recipient one year. It was such a shock on christmas Eve. Joni
