Neighbor, Family, Friends and Co-Workers Christmas Gifts-Orange You Glad We're friends, We Are!

Giving oranges for Christmas has been a tradition for many many years. Kids used to get oranges in their stockings, in fact I'm pretty sure they still are. Here's a fun way to give your family, friends and co-workers a delicious Christmas basket of clementines all dressed up in a festive Christmas design.

It such a easy kit to assemble. The photo above has brown crinkle paper in the bottom of the bag but that is certainly optional (crinkle paper isn't included in the kit but you can purchase a good sized bag at The Dollar Store for $1) We used the "Cutie' brand clementines for our samples and they are super sweet and delicious and fit perfectly in the cellophane bag with supply.

We filled a Christmas tin from Hobby Lobby with the brown crinkle paper and the placed the cellophane bags of clementines inside the tin leaving space for small pine cones, and holly leaves. We tied the green stripe ribbon around the tin and used green twine to tie on the "Merry Christmas" tag. Such a festive gift to give family, neighbors and friends.  Hobby Lobby has a HUGE assortment of tins this time of year…..small, large, tall, round, square and more. Currently all Christmas is 50% off at Hobby Lobby (I get nothing for this endorsement, just helping you find the best price on tins)

A little gluing and tying required to assemble tag. "Orange you glad we're friends? We are!  

You can put the crinkle paper in the bag or leave it out, it's totally optional

The size of the tin you purchase will dictate how many clementines you put in it, of course. We got the green stripe ribbon at Joann's and you can get a roll of for 40% off any day of the week at Joanns's if you show them the coupon from Hobby Lobby app on your cell phone. They will honor that discount.
