|Rubbermaid and Sharpie are very excited to partner together on this holiday gift idea.
With a little creative fun from you, we believe our products can make a great gift.
Add a little of yourself when you deliver your holiday goodies… decorate your Rubbermaid with Sharpies!
This year Rubbermaid and Sharpie have teamed up to help you spice up your holiday goodie gift giving.
I received a 15 pack of Rubbermaid Take Alongs, a package of Sharpie retractable markers in colors, a package of Sharpie retractable pens, a Sharpie refillable pen and a package of Sharpie oil based paint pens (contained silver & gold).
When I heard about this idea I thought it was ingenious. Rubbermaid Take Alongs help keep your goodies fresh and the Rubbermaid containers can be reused (bonus!). Your children (or you) can decorate and give a little piece of yourself with your gift! The Holiday Goodies plan also suggests that you write down the recipe with Sharpies (and decorate) so that your recipient can enjoy the cookies again later. I think that is an awesome idea, but I still won’t share my family’s secret recipes (*wink*… sorry Rubbermaid and Sharpie) .
So, I thought I’d give it a shot. I like the metallic paint pens on the lid. I can see a lot of possibilities with these. I did not have very much luck with the container, though. I am not a very creative person so I hit a road block almost immediately. BUT… I can totally see the kids getting into this full blast. I do think this is an awesome idea… just not for me. I may try again after looking for some ideas. I tend to be a pretty good “copy” artist, I just lack vision.
I love the concept of Rubbermaid Take Alongs. They are reasonably priced, reusable and I don’t have a heart attack if they get left behind at school or work. They have a nice air tight seal and keep your food fresh, too!
Sharpie has been my “go to” permanent ink pen/marker for ages now. They don’t run, the last forever and they come in so many variations you can use them for just about anything. The paint pens were new to me and I think they are fabulous. I can’t wait to try to “paint” another container with them.
BUY IT: You can purchase Rubbermaid and Sharpie products at a local store down the street (Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart etc) or online at places like Amazon.com
