Advent activities – Making edible gifts and free printable

As you may know, we’re having a frugal Christmas this year so the girls have been making edible gifts for friends and family.
I bought some of these mugs in the sales last January. They were 2 for a pound I think. I only bought 4 because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them so when we’d decided what gifts to give, we needed another 7. They cost ยฃ1 each now so I could have saved myself some money if I’d have planned ahead!

A bottle of melted snowman! I got the bottled water from B&M for 25p a bottle and I made the labels myself in Paint Shop Pro and printed them out.

I bought the bags from Pretty Packaging on Ebay. They were ยฃ2.25 for 20 plus 99p P&P.

The gift tags were made from last year’s Christmas cards and I bought the ribbon on sale in January. I can’t remember exactly what it costs but I know it was less than half what you’d pay for it at this time of year.
I always try to stock up at B&M in January because they have great bargains ๐Ÿ™‚

The cost of each gift is approximately ยฃ1.70.

We’ve also made the cousins a chocolate sleighย  ๐Ÿ™‚
