Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Holiday M&M's Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/1) CLOSED

Sunday, November 21, 2010 Posted by Dina N

M&M's require no introduction. I've had them in cookies, as M&M's peanuts, M&M's pretzels, with popcorn, and by the handful. We get them for Halloween, Valentine's Day, in gift baskets and candy dishes. This year, you can sweeten the holiday season with some personalized or holiday themed M&M's.

Personalized M&M's can be a sweet stocking stuffer for anyone in the family, for your friends and coworkers. They are inexpensive, come in fun packaging, and can be customized with holiday-themed clip art, messages and even photos. I received some holiday themed M&Ms in festive white, green and red. On one side, they had the familiar "m" and on the other - a snowflake, Merry Xmas, or Happy Holidays.

My kids love M&M's. I would get some pink and purple ones - my daughter's favorite colors - with fun pictures, such as a snowman, snowflakes, or even photos. These would be a great little surprise to find in their stockings, and will look so good in our candy dish. You can choose up to 3 colors, and add a personalized message in one of three fonts. And if you are wondering how many words you can fit on a tiny chocolate candy - it's up to 2 lines of 9 characters each, including spaces. Enough for Hugs and Kisses, Happy Holidays, and more.

Then there's the packaging. From a clear box to silver tins, holiday stocking, red or green plushie,  M&M's mug, glass bowl, holiday bear, and more - you can pick the packaging that best fits the person getting these yummy M&M's goodies.

Deal Alert
Right now, if you buy 3 bags of custom-printed M&M's, you get the fourth free.

Two lucky readers will each win two 7 oz bags of holiday themed M&M's!

    Mmmm, M&Ms

    It's simple really but I always put a dark chocolate orange in the toe of the hubby's stocking. He likes it and looks forward to it.

    I would have to say cash was the best thing I ever received in my stocking, when I was younger and still living at home my father used to give us a $100 bill and he would put it in our stockings along with lots of other goodies and small jewelry items, we loved getting that money because it meant lots of after christmas shopping and the sales would be fantastic. Thanks for the great giveaway

    My best stocking stuffer that I ever received were Sharpie Pens. If you haven't tried them before you should. They are the best writing pens that I have ever used and they don't smear like gel pens:)
