I love the holidays. They are truly the most wonderful time of the year. I love the atmosphere everywhere. People are so happy, the weather is cold, and there's just something about the holidays that make me so wonderfully happy that I cannot explain. (You, too?) 

One of my most favorite things about the holiday-time is gift-giving. Seriously, I get a little wild and crazy buying people gifts, and I pride myself in being a terrific gift-giver. For me, it's important to gift people with practical items that they will actually enjoy using and have a general need for. So, shopping for gifts is easy-peasy for me. It's the gift-wrapping that takes up too much time and can become complicated (especially for those oddly-shaped presents). 

While I'm not terrible at gift-wrapping, there are definitely others who have a natural talent for wrapping presents. Again, I'm not the worst, but I am definitely not one of those talented folks. So, instead of taking up too much time wrapping gifts, or just throwing things in bags (I somehow always tend to choose the wrong size), I've cut down on issues in gift-packing by using food storage containers as an easier way to pack gifts. 

Luckily, Rubbermaid TakeAlongs, available at Walmart now through December 24, are inexpensive and come in limited edition holiday colors and holiday prints. The soft lid grips the container tightly (no need for tape!), but opens easily with a large tab. What's even more is that these containers are dishwasher, freezer, and microwave-safe, so your giftee can reuse them - it's like two gifts in one! These Rubbermaid TakeAlongs are super easy to find at your local Walmart, as they are displayed on an end-cap. Impossible to miss!

Rubbermaid TakeAlongs come in a variety of sizes, so they're perfect for packing a variety of snacks, treats, and other edible gifts. So, follow along so you can learn how to perfect your gift-packing this year using Rubbermaid TakeAlongs.

Step 1: Choose your gift(s). These can be some of the ideas listed above, or of course, sweet and simple treats. Treats are the perfect gift for those hard-to-shop-for people. Make sure to personalize the gift around what they like. Do they like coffee? Perfect! Single-serve pods or packets. Chocolate? Make a chocolate lover's paradise - hot chocolate, candy bars, double chocolate cookies! Gift them their personal favorites!



Step 2: Choose your Rubbermaid TakeAlongs product in the perfect color and size.

Step 3: Pick out matching tissue paper, so your giftee won't be able to see their treats before they "unwrap" them. 


Step 4: Pack your treats! Remember, these can be homemade or pre-packaged treats.

Step 5: Snap your Rubbermaid TakeAlongs closed tightly, and decorate with kraft paper, ribbons, florals, you name it! Get wild and crazy.
