That is when I thought of these great Inspirational Coworker Gift Bags featuring the new Extra® 35-stick packs of gum, available in the checkout line at Target.
My coworker gift bags are featuring the Extra® Gum Spearmint and the Extra® Gum Polar Ice® because of the handy case being perfect for work desks but also because I feel like it gives my coworkers something to reach for when they might need a little stress relief or break in a rough day.
These Inspirational Coworker Gift Bags are super easy to make and all of these items can be found at your favorite Target store. I picked up some fun burlap bags, vintage looking labels and some mini notebooks along with the Extra® Gum.
Aren't these little notebooks adorable? My whole point of putting the notebooks and gum together is for my coworkers to find time to remove themselves from the daily stresses of work and process the day. Sometimes taking a few minutes to refresh with a stick of gum and sit down to a piece of paper is very therapeutic. Gives us time to draw, doodle, make to do lists, reprocess an event or just journal. All of those activities are important to our mind and bodies. Self-care often gets pushed aside but we have to make sure we take time to really reflect on how we are feeling and in turn find high productivity and positive thinking.
I started hand writing some personal notes to certain coworkers that I think would benefit from bags like this on the great vintage looking tags I picked up. I feel like this gives these gift bags some personal touches.
I put a mini notebook and an Extra® 35-stick pack of gum in each of the gift bags. You could also add some candy or other office items you think your coworkers would enjoy and use.
Then I decided to add a little more color to the gift tags by breaking out my favorite craft tape!. Love it!!!
I know that if I walked into a little gift bag like this on a rough morning at work I would feel appreciated and find the courage and time to take a few minutes to myself. We work hard every day but sometimes we have to make time for reflection.
I am loving the new 35 stick packs from Extra®. I have a few ideas for the empty cases too! Reuse and Recycle!!! Make sure you look for the new Extra® 35-stick packs of gum the next time you are in line at Target and be stocked up on your favorite gum!
What creative idea do you have for the new Extra® 35-stick packs of gum?
