We all have people we need to give Christmas gifts too. Whether it is a neighbor, teacher, friend, co-worker we need to find al title gift that shows we care. JOLLY TIME sent me a few boxes of their popcorn with Smart Balance and I thought the best use of these boxes was to make a cute little Christmas gift for some of my church friends. I combined the boxes of popcorn with some boxes of candy (this is totally a fun movie night package) wrapped it up with cellophane and tied it with a bow. I’m going to include a little note that says “Just ‘Popping’ by to wish you a Merry Christmas.” Cute, right? This is an easy and simple way to create a Christmas present and use one of America’s favorite snacks – popcorn!
JOLLY TIME also makes the perfect snack for our family movie nights! On this very cold day we are snuggling up with a movie and some popcorn! YUM!
