This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.Do you have a lot of people in your life that you’d love to say thank you to? Are you looking for a simple and inexpensive gift idea for those that make your day a little bit brighter? I’m so excited to be a part of the Give Extra, Get Extra campaign brought to you by Extra chewing gum and Collective Bias. I posted last week about how thoughtful my neighbor was and how I wanted to thank her by bringing her a jar of homemade apple butter. She loved it, and it was nice to spread cheer, but we don’t always have the time to bake up a batch of something. When I’m in a rush or a hurry, or need a quick filler, I always reach for chewing gum. Everyone loves getting a new flavor or just a special treat in general. Give one to my kids, and they’d think you handed them the moon. Extra wants to encourage you to reach out and thank those people who are important in your life. Give a little extra this holiday season to those you see daily and forget to thank: the teachers, the mail person, the doctor’s office employees, the bus driver, the local fire station volunteers. The list is endless! To help assist with your gifting, I’ve created free printable labels that you can attach to your package. The labels tell your recipient that you think they are pretty special! Also, I’ve included a free SVG for those of you with cutting machines, to make wrapping easy peasy!
