Holiday Survival Kit

A match to light your fire when you feel burned out

A Tootsie Roll to remind you not to bite off more than you can chew

Smarties to help on those days when you don't feel so bright

A starburst to give you a burst of energy on those days when you feel drained

A snicker to remind you to take time to laugh

A chocolate kiss to remind you of how loved you are

A peppermint to remind you that you are worth a mint

A candle to help you be a beacon of light to others

A penny so that you'll always share your thoughts with others

Thanks for being you Happy Holidays

Love this idea! We do stockings only for one of our celebrations...for the adults...this is perfect for part of the surprises!

This was a great survival kit. I used it as a surprise gift for our college kids at church when they left in the fall. It's always hard to be away from home, but at least they know we love and care for them.


Thank you for the great idea.

What a great idea. We found holiday-decorated takeout boxes for $1, little boxed oraments and initial oraments that looked like cookies for $1 and filled the boxes with the oraments and candy and topped with the note. We added Rolo's (to remind you to just roll with it) and spent about $4-$5 per gift. You can easily customize the box, for example Extra gum--because you're extra special. I made a box with Swedish Fish and chocolate/caramel turtles for the young lady who feeds our fish and turtles when we go out of town. Everybody loved their box and we were able to give out more for less than we spent last year. Thanks for the idea.
