I love doing Christmas countdowns and this year I decided to do a Christmas Fairy countdown. The Christmas Fairy is actually me (shhh, don’t tell) and every day I’ve been leaving little goodies and gifts out for my two guys.
I think the biggest successes so far have been the little jars of goodies as seen in the photo above.
Oriental Trading, which is one of my favorite online places to shop, sells the most adorable little milk bottles for only $15.99 for a dozen. Each bottle comes with a plastic lid that seals really tight. The bottles can be used for storing craft supplies, goodies, and obviously drinking milk from. They could also double as vases or pencil holders. So I am definitely hanging onto them to re-purpose after Christmas.
All of the candy also came from Oriental Trading. Their prices on Hershey’s chocolates are amazing. The green gummy bears are to die for. They smell and taste delicious. This was the first time we have tried gummy bears from Oriental Trading, but after my husband tasted them he asked me to order more! The gummy bears come in 5-pound bags of 9 different flavors.
I made these cute little tags to put on every gift that the Christmas Fairy brings. I print them out on card stock, punch a hole in the top right corner and tie one around each gift with ribbon.
Tonight, I am leaving out plates of mini Hershey’s candy bars and even better than the chocolate is the fact that the plates are a Charlie Brown Christmas theme! Maybe we’ll end up having chocolate for breakfast. The fairies would approve!
