DIY Gingerbread House Kit & Free Gingerbread People Printable Gift Tags

CB-sponsored-post-white-400Make Your Own Gingerbread House Kit with Free Printable Gingerbread People Gift Tags #shopI love giving handmade gifts for Christmas!  There is just something special about receiving a gift that someone took the time to make for you.  So, each year, Kate and I make our list of people that are special to us, and try to make them a little something.  This Christmas, one of the things we have decided to make are handmade Gingerbread House Kits with Gingerbread M&Ms, and we made some cute Gingerbread People Gift Tags to go along with them!

Gingerbread House Kit #shopWe started by buying our supplies.  M&M’s has a new flavor, Gingerbread, which is available exclusively at Walmart!  We just knew these would be perfect for our gingerbread house kits.  I mean, what could be more perfect than that?  M&M’s has so many new options, and this may be my new favorite!  We also grabbed some graham crackers for the structure, a couple of different icing options to use as the glue and decor, and a red tin to pack the kit in.
