Take a Midnight Stroll – Gift Idea from #BICMerryMarking #MidnightNavy #ad

This holiday season I will be focusing more on Merry Marking then I will on spending money. What do I mean by Merry Marking? I mean that I will be bringing cheer to all those around me with these great ideas from BIC using their awesome BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers!

Today I sat down with the BIC Mark-It™ Midnight Navy permanent marker and wrote out a few notes to my neighbors and friends. I tied each note to a candy cane and I will be going around tonight to slip them onto my neighbors mailboxes. I’m so excited to show a little love without them knowing it was me!

BIC Mark-It™ has lots of great Merry Marking ideas. You can click the link below to get more ideas out of their digital pdf booklet. The booklet contains inspirational ideas that you can create for your home or for your loved ones.

Don’t forget to stop by and get the booklet of merry marking and a coupon to start marking gifts for your loved ones today!

I would love it if you showed off your BIC Mark-It™ Merry Marking creations! Feel free to tag me via social media or leave me a comment with a picture to show me what you have done!

    It’s actually against the law here for anyone other than a mail carrier to place something in anyone else’s mail box, so I will just leave it at their door 😉

    What a cute idea. I think I would hang them over the door knob. It would be a cleaver idea for kids to give their classmates before Christmas break, or as an attachment to a small present. I love it!
