It’s funny to me that the one post that gets the most traffic via Google image and keyword searches is my White Trash Backyard Bash. Years ago we had a costume party and everybody came dressed in their finest white trash attire. So I get searches for “white trash costumes”, “white trash food”, “white trash party” and all kinds of other fun white trash things. I figure I should just play on what works, so I’m going to give you some White Trash Gift Ideas.
White Trash Gift Ideas
White Trash Wine Glasses
I have to admit that this was not my original idea, I think we all know I’m not creative enough for that! Nope, the idea originally came from ModernDayMoms.com’s post called Hillbilly Crystal AKA Redneck Wine Glasses.
The difference between the wine glasses that they made and my White Trash Wine Glasses are that the bottom part of their wine glasses (the “stem”) are made from glass candlestick holders. Mine? Are shot glasses!
All You Will Need:
Mason Jars (I used half-pint (8 ounce) sized Ball jars)
Flat-Bottomed Shot Glasses
Glass Glue (I used Gorilla Glue for outside use)
I spent under $20 for all of these items for enough jars/glasses to make 12 White Trash Wine Glasses.
What You Do:
Apply the Gorilla Glue to the bottom of the shot glass, and then attach the shot glass to the mason jar. I pressed on it for just long enough to make sure it was straight and centered (or pretty close…these are white trash glasses after all!). That’s it! Let it dry…it took about 8 hours or so to be able to move them without fear of breaking them.
We decided to leave the lids on them so that, if the gift recipient wants, they can write their name right on the lid! That way nobody will steal it away…it’s like a White Trash Wine Charm!
Jolly Rancher Vodka
So what do you put in the white trash wine glasses? Well, wine obviously! And if wine is not your bag baby, flip it over and you’re ready to do shots!
How about Jolly Rancher Vodka shots or Candy Cane Vodka shots? They’re pretty to look at and taste yummy!
It is so simple. All you do is put 12 of the same flavored Jolly Ranchers (remove the plastic from them of course) in a pint sized mason jar. Fill up the jar with vodka of your choice, and then let the candy dissolve, it takes about 8 hours. That’s it!
Fair warning: Candy infused vodka tastes more like candy than like alcohol, so beware.
Maybe you aren’t a fan of Jolly Ranchers. No problem. You can do this with just about any hard candy. Try the same process with candy corns…just get a hand full of candy corns and drop them in the mason jar and fill with vodka. It takes a little longer to break down, but it works.
If it’s the holidays…how about Candy Cane Infused Vodka?
White Trash Cookbook
Yep, you read that right. There’s an actual white trash cookbook titled White Trash Cooking. So if you have a foodie in your life that you have been searching for the perfect gift to buy, this might be it. Head over and read my review of White Trash Cooking – it’s a fun read!
