100 Days of Christmas – Day 93

Family Bites has a great idea for an Ice Cream Gift Box.

Ways to save money on this gift (UPDATE – deals listed here are from Dec 2011 and are now expired):

  • Get your chocolate chips at Target for $1.34/bag
  • Use the 20% off Michael’s coupon (valid Sat-Sun 12/17-12/18) to save on sprinkles and a gift basket.
  • Get $1.50/2 Archer Farms Snack Items Target printable and use to save on nuts.
  • Check your local dollar store for misc sprinkles, bag candy or gummies to add to the mix (you can also probably find a container or basket).
  • Buy a box of candy canes at Walmart for $1 and crush them up for another topping.
  • Split up the chocolate chips, marshmallows, nuts and sprinkles and make two gift sets.
  • Make your own chocolate sauce and caramel sauce.


  1. I love this idea and I am going to use it for birthdays gifts, open houses or any time I can. Thanks for the fun idea.
