Add a furniture knob to a cork-lidded glass dish and fill the dish with seasonal candy.
5. Condiment Repurpose Candy Display
You can use all kinds of things to display your favorite candy. This condiment holder is a thrifty find spray painted with Rustoleum Hammered Spray Paint.
6. Moscow Mule Candy Filled Gift Idea
Talk about fancy. The Moscow mules came from Goodwill at a cheap price. My good friend and neighbor needed cheering up, so I filled the mugs with Lindt Chocolates and wrapped them up all pretty. I gave one mug to her and one to another neighbor. Surprises are always nice.
7. Dollar Tree Candy Holders
The little trays from Dollar Tree are inexpensive and, when filled with seasonal candy, make great gifts for caregivers or nursing home staff.
8. Candy Filled Paper Wrapped Gift Mugs
Another idea for nursing home staff during the holidays are seasonal mugs from Dollar Tree mug filled with peppermints. Wrap the mugs in cellophane.

Stencil inexpensive kraft bags to hold the candy for trick-or-treaters or give the little ones the bags to hold their treats.
