There are certain people who play roles as VIPs in our life. They can be old friends, a special co-worker or a trustworthy family member. One of my biggest VIPs is my Mom. My Mom is always ready to give extra and step in to lend a hand and not just for our family, but for others in the community as well. She volunteers in the schools, with the elderly, and so many other places.
So this holiday season, I wanted to do something extra for her (beyond her regular Christmas present of course) and give a little “just because” present – a Give Extra, Get Extra gift with Extra Gum.
To make the gift a little extra special I created some fun Extra Gum Gift Tags, each related to a different flavor of Extra gum. They have lots of fun flavor varieties that lend themselves to fun sayings that to help express how special I think my Mom is. They may be a bit corny, but she has always loved a good pun! (I think it runs in the family.) This is what I came up with:
Extra Sweet Watermelon – I Think You’re Sweet
Extra Dessert Delights Mint Chocolate Chip – You Are So Delightful
Extra Mixed Berry – You’re “Berry” Special
Extra Polar Ice – I Think You’re NICE
Extra Sweet Orange – “Orange” You the Best?
Extra Peppermint – You’re EXTRA Special
Once the gift tags were created, decorating the EXTRA packages was very simple. I just printed the tags on heavyweight paper and cut out the squares. Next a hole punch was used to make a hole in the corner of each tag. I used ribbon to attach the tags to each package.
You can go ahead and use my tags (print them here) to make your own specially decorated Extra gum packages for someone special. Or, go ahead and invent your own sayings to make them even more personalized.
So, I urge you to think about the people in your life who go the extra mile to help out you or others and reward them with a little something extra. It could be teachers, your mail carrier, the babysitter, your best friend, the receptionist at your doctor’s office – anyone who help to make your life a little easier!
Who in your life deserves something EXTRA?
