Holiday Treat Gift Ideas

by Dinah Wulf

My initial inspiration for this post was poop.  Yes you read that correctly.  Poop.  I kept seeing Pumpkin Poop and Reindeer poop ideas on Pinterest that I decided to write a post on it!  These holiday treat gift ideas are all great ideas, I must say.  They are affordable DIY gifts for a classroom, holiday party favors, or even gifts for a group of friends or family members. Let’s start with the poop, shall we?

This first one is Pumpkin Poop complete with a poem!

I started to carve my Pumpkin, with my carving knife and scoop,

But my pumpkin got so scared that he took a little poop!

It looked so cute and funny, just like a candy treat,

So I’m sharing it with you now, because you are so sweet!

This Pumpkin Poop was listed on Etsy but no longer available.  The beauty of it is you can make it yourself!

Here is another one with a poem.  This time this poem is about Reindeer Poop!

Santa looked at his list.  He even checked it twice.

And he found out you haven’t been very nice.

Since coal is so expensive, here’s the inside scoop.

Santa is filling your stocking with lots of Reindeer Poop!

Don’t like poop?  Try reindeer noses with eight chocolate malted balls and one red gumball for Rudolph’s nose.

OK, last poop one with a poem!  This time snowman poop!

Heard you’ve been naughty so here’s the scoop.

All you get for Christmas is Snowman poop!

This is a simple hot chocolate pack with mini marshmallows.  I’d add in a mini candy cane too!

This is a cute treat to leave out for Santa.  Chocolate donuts, jelly bean red noses, and pretzel antlers.

Another donut idea, these snowmen on a stick are adorable and easy to eat!

This would be perfect for a hot chocolate bar at a holiday party.  Or consider wrapping these marshmallow pops up individually with a hot cocoa packet!

Here’s another fun marshmallow pop idea.

A perfect thank you with a message, “Thank you for giving a hoot!”

The best for last… These chocolate bag of skeletons may possibly be my favorite!
