I’m so excited that in just three days my sister and her family will be here for Christmas!  I have of course spoiled my nephews completely rotten with tons of gifts.  My husband, daughter and I exchange small gifts with each other, and I’ve always exchanged gifts with my sister even when we have to ship them 1300 miles to get to each other.  Not wanting to leave my brother-in-law a sad panda, I wanted to get him something to open as well, but needed some Christmas present ideas. 

Since we don’t usually do this, I didn’t want to spend a whole lot, but I also wanted to get a thoughtful gift to show our appreciation that they drove all the way from Canada to Texas to spend Christmas with us.  So after asking my sister what he likes, I perused Walgreens holiday gift guide to find some things I could put together for a gift for him.

Mark is a farmer.  That means he gets up really early when there is work in the fields.  This guy is powered by caffeine.  When I was flipping through Walgreens Happy & Healthy Holiday Guide, I thought “great idea!” when I saw this (yes, I photo-shopped it some…don’t judge!):

And I noticed a few pages into the guide a suggestion to add peppermints to coffee for a seasonal twist.

As I continued to flip through the guide for different ideas, I kept in the back of my head that my sister mentioned after long days in the winter in the shed working on equipment or going out to feed the cattle, he liked to put his feet up in the evening and enjoy some chocolate.

Let me tell you Walgreens Holiday Guide is full of Nice!™ Good & Delish™ treats to nibble on during the holiday season.  From tea and crackers to meatballs and the chocolates I was looking for, you’ll find plenty of snack ideas for your guests.

And if you’re not a Balanced Rewards Member, you really should become one.  It’s free to join and you get rewarded for the things you are buying anyway.  What a great deal to save an extra $2 on goodies for your guests.

And although I was shopping for my brother-in-law, I ended up tossing something in my basket for my husband too, because they had his favorite orange chocolate balls on sale for just $1.99 and I couldn’t resist picking one of those up for him as a gift.

There’s a two page spread in the guide to help you WRAP LIKE A PRO.  Lessons I need to learn.  Seriously.  My packages look like a kindergartner wrapped them sometimes.  I wandered down the holiday paper aisle to look for something to get my purchases all wrapped up.  I ended up just using a bag because I may be beyond even Walgreens’ help when it comes to wrapping.

Want to see what I came out with?

All of those chocolates were items featured in the Happy & Healthy Holiday Guide.  Walgreens has some pretty hot deals going right now.  Between coupons and the Balance Rewards, I spent less than $25.00 on the gift for my brother-in-law.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a holiday exchange, get some inspiration from their holiday guide and then snag some incredible deals at Walgreens.
