Gift Idea--Gag Tag & Favor

Last week I saw two cute ideas at a craft bazaar using plastic, recloseable bead bags (available at WalMart, Staples, etc):

1. Gag Tag. A single battery in the bag with a cute tag attached that said, "Gift not included".

2. Favor. This story-verse was printed on a cute tag and attached to the bag of M&M's.

The Christmas Story on M&M’s

As you hold these candies in your hand and turn them, you will see the M becomes a W, an E and then a 3. They tell the Christmas story; it’s one I’m sure you know, it took place in a stable a long, long time ago. The E is for the East, where the star shone so bright. The M is for the manger, where baby Jesus slept that night. The 3 is for the wise men, to bear gifts they say they came. W is for Worship, Hallelujah, Praise His Name. So as you eat these candies or share them with a friend, remember the meaning of Christmas, it’s a love story that never ends.

It's been awhile since I've been to a bazaar, are these old ideas?
I'm wondering where (or to whom) would you give these gifts?

I've never heard either of those clever ideas, either. I love the M&M words attached..who knew a message on those could give me chills? Thanks for the thoughts!

These are both new ideas to me, thanks!

I've seen the M&M one before, but the battery is hilarious! You could give the M&M gift to your singles ward, and the battery to whoever has a good sense of humor!
Thanx for the reminder on ideas!
