Having trouble feeling excited for the holidays this year? Maybe it still feels a little too soon for you, or perhaps you’re just missing that celebratory spirit that’s normally sprinting through your veins. It happens. You don’t want to be the Grinch, but the thought of entering such a joyous season right now has you feeling a little green.
Don’t fret, because we have just the thing to get that holiday cheer flowing once again, and it’s seriously sweet. Chocolatey too! We’re talking about the iconic, the classic, the timeless, the delicious — you know what it is — M&M’S! M&M’S are a year-round mood-lifter, but for the holidays, they’re unstoppable!
Ready to have some fun? You can personalize your very own M&M’S as a gift (to yourself or someone else), and just going through the process will put a smile on your face. There are so many ways to customize — there are even new NFL-themed options available. Just pick your favorite team!
To start personalizing, click the “Design Your Own M&M’S” button at the top of the page. First, you can choose up to three colors. We chose Light Blue, Teal and Pearl for a wintry blend. You can then choose clipart, with either a saying like “Happy Holidays” or an image like a gift, a candy cane, a dreidel or something unrelated to the holidays. There are so many options for so many occasions. You can add your own text if you want too, in addition to the clipart! Want to upload your own image? That’s also an option. Upload either an actual photo or a logo you own to see it on that famous candy shell! You’ll see you can also save and share your image with others if you need some opinions before finalizing. Here’s ours:
Once you’re done designing, it’s time to choose your packaging. You can go for one that looks like a Christmas tree or menorah, or perhaps one that looks like a champagne bottle. There are plenty of simple bags, tins and jars to choose from as well. Pick your fave, add to cart and start celebrating! Before we forget, you can save big through November 14 — use code: HOLIDAYMMS20 to receive 20% off from the Traditional M&M’S category. It doesn’t get much sweeter than that!
