DIY “Rum and Coke” Co-Worker Gifts

As a busy, full-time working mom, quick, easy and inexpensive are standards for me.  I had to come up with something for my team of 13 at work and I didn’t have time to whip up the beautiful DIY body sugar rub that I had planned to make since last Christmas.  Instead, I went to the liquor store and cleaned them out of mini rum bottles, picked up a case of coke, some festive gift bags and headed home.  (Keep in mind, I also had teacher gifts, 2 class card sets for each of my boys and lunch items to pick up that night too – did I mention that “quick” and “easy” were “MUST HAVES” for my co-worker Christmas project)

I had planned to beautifully tie each little liquor bottle to the pop can but I’m just not that crafty and I didn’t have that kind of time to invest.  Instead, I tied a little ribbon on each bottle. Then, I stuffed them each into one of the festive bags with a tuft of tissue paper and Voila:

Rum and Coke for Christmas! (For the non-alcohol consumers, I doubled up on the Cokes)
