Look how much stuff I was able to fit into just one cubby hole! And there is still room for more. I wrapped small aspirin and bandage boxes in scrapbook paper to reuse year after year. A pack of mini candy canes goes a long way. Wrapped in tissue is a car freshener for my daughter. Get the individually boxed tea bag gift set at Big Lots and put one in each cubby. The amount of space these cubby holes provide really allow a lot of options. There is enough room for more than candy. Gift cards, small toys, even underwear! Lol
I have already stocked and filled the cubbies for countdown. I can still add more as we go along. After the day is over, put an LED tea light in the cubby for a Festival of Lights! Also, I found this adorable mailbox (on the top) at the dollar store. It's great for items that are too big for the cubby hole. Just put your large item in the mailbox and put the flag up to indicate a large parcel is waiting to be opened. CHEERS!
