Disclosure #cbias #FueledbyMM #shop About a month ago, I shared with you about our great game night with Forza 4 and M&M’s.  My guys had so much fun playing their new game and sharing it with our friends.  I knew then that Forza 5 for Xbox One would make a perfect Christmas gift, and M&M’s have always been a favorite in the stockings at our house.  I had learned about the Buy, Snap, and Redeem program, so I knew I could get a great deal at Walmart.  I just had to find the time to brave the holiday crowds.

It really was just as simple as I expected to get my $10 gift card from Walmart through Buy, Snap and Redeem.  I just bought Forza 5 and a big bag of M&M’s in the same transaction.  Then I snapped a picture of my receipt and texted it in.  I got the text immediately saying that I would receive my code within 48 hours.  It actually arrived less than 24 hours later.

Both my guys will enjoy the new video game – but I decided to give it to my Mr. Fix It.  He’s always so hard to buy for!   Perfect Gamer Gifts #FueledbyMM #cbias #shop I also came up with a great idea to make the M&M’s fun for my sweetie.  He’s been starting to feel his age a little more lately.  He’s really sick of taking pills and not feeling as full of energy as he used to, so I made some little “pick me up” pill bottles for his M&M’s.  The Grinch Pills are not a new idea.  I originally saw them here.  But I had ideas for other M&M colors, and I wanted to use my own verses, so I created my own labels which I’m sharing with you below.  I happened to have some Avery labels (#22827) left over from another project, which were a little bigger than I needed but worked out fine when I trimmed them. But you could just as easily print them onto plain paper and glue or tape them to your bottles.  (Click the image for a PDF) Pill Bottle Labels #FueledbyMM #cbias #shopI bought some cheap spices (5th Seasons – 64¢ at my Walmart) and used the bottles so they’d all be the same.  Here’s a tip when you get ready to take the labels off.  Use a cleaner with orange oil and the glue will come off so much easier than using alcohol or nail polish remover like we used to do it.

They look so cute – and I tucked them all inside this racing themed stocking along with the game for my sweetie to find on Christmas morning.  (The racing themed stocking – just a dollar store stocking with a strip of “checkered flag” fabric basted to the top – easy peasy!).

So make your favorite gaming fan a special gift for Christmas.  And get a great deal with Buy Snap and Redeem at Walmart.  It’s a win win!
