I am set with my holiday office gifts and the massive lot of oatmeal and cranberry soap is wrapped up. I'm dropping these on people's desks when I get in Monday morning. My crushing workload has me in at 7AM, a couple of hours before most people, so I'll be a sneaky elf. I figured early December works because we've had the company Christmas party and not all folks are Christian.
I made small tags out of vellum and tied the package with raffia and spare fabric strips that would otherwise be thrown away. The candy cane is taking the place of a formal bow.
The soap came from Dollar Tree, as did the package of raffia -- and I have plenty of that left. I used two boxes of DT candy canes too. My colleagues are almost equally divided by gender and I figure this gift is suitable for both male and female. This will work out to approximately $1.15 per person -- a very budge friendly solution!
