Carpe Giftum

Every year, my girl Halina throws her annual "Carpe Giftum" party. It's a simple concept: everyone brings a one gift to exchange, we open them, and then get one chance to swap with someone else. Sounds easy enough, but there are a few rules:

  1. No bath or body stuff
  2. No Chocolate
  3. No Holiday items
  4. Must be something you would want
  5. Must be $10 or under

This is the 4th year for her party, and each year the gifts seem to get better. All the girls do their due diligence to find the perfect gift to exchange (creativity helps!) Last year there were a few items that we actually fought over! I've got my gift (I'll share it with you on Friday - don't want to blow the surprise) but in the mean time, I'm making the treat bags.  Here's what I've made - it's the perfect size for a small snack.  What would you give for $10 or less?

Everyone LOVED the treat boxes! Erin can make any treat/occasion extra special.
