Gift Idea: Gum Roll Ups

My little sister’s birthday is today. At 23 she’s not so little anymore, but I still will always think of her as a petite princess lost in the crazy world. (She’s pretty much a princess.)

Anyhow, Princess Ashton loves gum. So for this birthday I supplemented some of my favorite beauty supplies with a creative throwback from my days at summer camp. It’s really easy to put together and adds that special “I love you” flare I like to include in gifts that need a handmade touch.

You just need Big League Chew and your favorite flavor of stick gum. I like Juicy Fruit, but you can use any flavor.

Gum Roll Ups

Grab a marble sized chunk of Big League and mold it into a ball. Place the ball at one end of the unwrapped stick gum.

Roll up the stick gum keeping it tight without ripping it. If your gum seems a bit stiff, you can hold it between your palms for about 5-10 seconds to make it more malleable.

Use the heat from your hands to keep everything intact. I like to re-wrap each roll up in the original wrapper to minimize waste.

That’s it! It’s really that easy!

Gum Roll Ups Gift Idea

I got this cute kitty container at Target in the snack container section. Worse case scenario, a snack baggy ziplock keeps the gum super fresh.



  1. Wow! I have never seen this before and definitely never would have thought of it. Definitely great for the gum lover!

  2. Awww…this is such a nice and personal idea! I never would have thought to do this. And I just love the special cat canister!

  3. How simple and cute! My kids would go crazy over this. It’s also a fun way to mix flavors of gum and would be a blast to make WITH the kids. Thanks for the idea!

  4. What a cute personalized touch on a gift. This is a very creative idea!

  5. This is really cute! I may have to find a reason to do this for someone. 😉

  6. This is a really cute idea. I think my 14 year old son would love this. Adorable kitty container, too!

  7. I haven’t had big league in years! FUN for gum chewers!

  8. That’s cute – my kids have never tried Big League chew. Forgot all about this!
