Easy Gift Idea: Triathlete's Survival Kit

TriathletesSurvivalKit3.jpg

If this jar just so happened to end up in my stocking on Christmas morning, I’d be pretty happy. There isn’t a pro triathlete I know who would turn down the quick energy buzz from a handful of m&m’s in the midst of a hard day of training. There's something about the crunch and the protein from the peanuts that makes it seem more like a meal, or so we tell ourselves.

It just so happens that the contents of the large holiday sized bags of m&m’s (12.6 oz.) fit perfectly into a standard sized mason jar. If you want to get crafty, make a little gift tag that says “Triathlete’s Survival Kit” and tie it around the jar using a piece of twine. Instant gift. Happy triathlete.

I should mention, that this gift extends to other professions and hobbies. Just ask our sister, Aliza, who survived many a long night as a Broadway company manager

thanks to the peanut m&m's gum ball machine at Richard Frankel Productions.

The one thing about this gift is that it must be a last minute project - unless you plan on turning it into an early present for yourself.
