Christmas M&M Poem and Gift Idea - cute and simple - all you need is some m&m's, a jar, ribbon, and your label!! { }

I will be sharing a few more simple and easy gift ideas in the next week or so. I don’t think you’ll mind because if you’re anything like me you’re constantly looking for cute, easy and cheap gift ideas. 😉

This next idea was inspired by a print I saw at an enrichment activity this past month at church. My friend had made little containers of Christmas M&Ms and attached this poem. She said she had seen the poem a long time ago and found several printables of them online. I decided I would make my own print for them too and love how this cute Christmas M&M Poem and Gift Idea turned out.

You can obviously change it up however you like.

I found my jar for $2 at Hobby Lobby (when their glassware is 50% off). I attached the print with glue dots and then tied some twine around the top.

To make things even easier you can print off the poem and attach it to a bag of M&Ms. Easy!!

Click on the image you want above. RIGHT-CLICK and SAVE. Then, open it in a program like WORD, RE-SIZE, PRINT and CUT.


I think the chalk print is cuter, but I know some of you don’t want to drain all your ink so I made the other version too. 😉

I think these would be perfect for the sisters I visit from church!

Love this. Just wanted to see if you could upload a corrected file…there is a typo in these. On the line where it says the M becomes a W and the E….. it says “and E and a 3” versus “and E comes a 3”. Thanks!


    Okay, duh, I just re-read it and it’s fine. Sorry!

Norene S.

Thank you very much! These are adorable ideas. I have been thinking of ways to camouflage a small gift and this would work very well :-). Thanks again!

    Lil' Luna

    You are very welcome, Norene!! Hope you have a great Christmas. 🙂

What a fabulous gift idea. Thanks for sharing this poem. I was going to make some M&M gift jars for the grandkids and this is perfect to go on them.

    Lil' Luna

    So glad you can use them!! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!


What did you resize the M&M poem to?

    Lil' Luna

    I can’t remember exactly but bought the jar, measured the front and just re-sized it so it would fit there.


You are right, perfect for Visiting Teaching sisters! Thanks for the great idea!!

Sharon Buckler

Love this! Thank you!


So what size jars did you use for the Christmas m & m poem and do you have a correct label for the jars ??

    Lil' Luna

    You can use any size of jar you want. You’ll just have to re-size it to fit. And the label is correct. 😉


I’m not into this holiday, but my mum is. Really neat idea that I think she’ll love. She always has a jar full of these during the holidays.


I am printing the Christmas Poem and I love the idea but I noticed that the second line has a mistake in it. I believe that it should say and the E BECOMES A 3, but it says E AND A 3. Please help!! I tried recreating this in word but it just doesn’t look the same as yours! thank you so much!! I love this!


    never mine. I just read someone else’s post and realized I am an idiot. So much for two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s! LOL


How do I attach the poem to the jar? Sorry new to this DIY

What i do not realize is if truth be told how you are not really
a lot more neatly-favored than you may be now.

You’re so intelligent. You recognize therefore significantly in the case of
this subject, produced me in my view imagine it from numerous various
angles. Its like men and women are not involved until it’s
one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding.

Always care for it up!

    I have a small crafting business. I love this idea for my craft table but always like to ask because of copyrights etc. Is this ok to use for that?


Fantastic idea. My Chapter women wanted to make gifts for others this year, so each one is bringing an idea to the table. Mine will be the M&M candy jar.

I would love for you to print that page “what I love about Grandma”


Hi. Do you have a sample of the poem so that it can be printed? If not, did you use black paper or construction paper?
