Hey friends!

I am so excited to share today’s post with you all! It’s an easy and fun gift idea using Extra Gum! I love Extra and have been chewing it for years! The smooth mint flavor is still to this day my favorite flavor of any gum! Well, enough gabbing. Are you ready to see how you can give Extra this holiday? It’s easy and fun I promise! First things first – pick up some Extra gum – it’s right in the checkout lane at Walmart. There are quite a few varieties available everything from original bubblegum to berry.


 I chose some minty flavors (I swear, smooth mint is SO good). I got a simple blue tinted mason jar (available at craft stores) and filled it with the silvery sticks of minty gum. I created a fun printable (I’ll share it below) that can be used as a card or lid topper – I decided to trace and cut mine for the lid. Simply trace with the metal piece to ensure a tight fit. It will slip right in between the part that screws on top and the part that lays flat to seal the jar.

 I screwed the lid back on, grabbed a label and some bakers twine out of my craft stash, and created a fun little tag to wrap around the body of the jar. This gift is just so fun and simple and will be so appreciated, i’m sure. We’re going to be leaving this in the mailbox for our wonderful mail lady. She is always so sweet and friendly when the boys and I see her – so we’ll be gifting this along with a Christmas card to wish her a happy holiday! I’m also thinking of doing something similar for Wyatt’s teachers at school!

So, what do you think? Pretty cute, right? The jar is filled with three packages of gum so that should keep our lovely mail lady happily chewing minty gum for quite some time – I can’t wait to give it to her!

Oh, and as promised – here is the fun printable! ๐Ÿ™‚

Feel free to re-size to fit any size jar:
