I work out of the home full time, which means that I see most of my coworkers more than I see my own family! We have all been through a lot together in the last couple of years and sometimes we need to share a little pick me up with one another. While I do not work in direct care with the kids we serve at the non-profit agency I work at, I feel the stress of a mental health system daily - as do my coworkers. Most of the time we bring in treats and snacks for each other but recently I was trying to think of ways we could promote self care for the people at my agency rather than just feeding them yummy treats.

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.

I have always been an Extra® loving lady so when I saw that they have created a product with more sticks of gum and in a durable, recycled package I was sold.  I am notorious for having mashed up gum packages in my purse and desk drawer so having this harder case to keep my favorite gum safe is really nice.  

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!

  1. We buy Extra all the time at Walmart, but ours only carry the smaller packs. I wish they had those larger ones!

  6. You are so thoughtful! I love this idea and I think I could make it work as a teacher gift. I always carry Extra gum especially when I'm traveling on an airplane!

  7. Even with regularly brushing my teeth I still get lots of tarter buildup but I've found regularly chewing Extra gum makes a real impact on cutting it down. Plus never hurts to have fresh breath.
