    Default Blizzard Kit (Really Cute Gift)


    wrap a big box in festive holiday paper and fill it with a box of cocoa, 2 bags of marshmallows, a box of graham crackers, 2 family-sized chocolate bars, a box of popcorn, a DVD/movie and maybe a card game or a board game like UNO or Jenga or even a deck of playing cards. Then write a little poem and attach it to the box:

    "If you find yourselves indoors because of ice and snow ...

    There's plenty of popcorn, S'mores and fun ... and don't forget cocoa!"

    This is a great idea, and not much money spent. Thanks

    Great JoAnn! Let me know what she thinks! (I may do a version of this for my Hubbie as one of his gifts for Christmas. - I'm hoping we get snowed in for a day this year! )

    Oooh! I just thought of something! If you need a Christmas gift for someone who is newly married or a wedding present for someone getting married in winter, you could do a blizzard kit for them. Except, instead of smores & games you could put in:
    a candle & small box of matches
    a CD of romantic music
    a bottle of massage oil
    a box of chocolates
    a "Do Not Disturb" sign for the door

    That's wonderful even for those who aren't newly wed. I wouldn't mind receiving one any time eventhough i've been married forever

    So many great ideas here. Everyone has really got my ball rolling. I think gifts like these, are more personal and thoughtful. Being married for years too lollll---would love one of these gifts. I have an address if anyone wants to send one...Thanks rtebalt great ideas you have & have started here.
