Do you have your holiday shopping done? Are you forgetting anything? One item that is easily overlooked but essential are batteries for those electronic gifts. Isn’t it frustrating when you give a gift to someone that they absolutely love, but can’t immediately use because they don’t have batteries for the gift?
One way to prevent unfortunate situations like this is to always include batteries with your gifts. It is also advisable to ensure you have a generous stock of batteries on hand in case someone forgets to include batteries with their gifts because no one wants to have a disappointed toddler (or grown man!) on their hands! LOL!
Though batteries may not seem like the most glamorous of gifts, I assure you, they are one of the most useful. This year you can pick up new Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ Batteries AA which are the world’s first AA battery made with 4% recycled batteries, and they are Energizer’s longest-lasting batteries! Not only are these batteries the highest performing Energizer batteries, they are also the most responsible alkaline batteries by creating less waste and having less impact on the planet. Good for the planet and super powerful…sounds good to me!
Since I recently had the opportunity to head to Walmart and pick up a few packs of these Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ Batteries AA, I wanted to share with you one creative way to incorporate them into your holiday gift giving. Below I show you how to easily make a fun white elephant gift using these eco-friendly batteries. I even include the free printable in case you want to borrow the idea. Besides this white elephant gift idea, these Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ Batteries would also make great stocking stuffers as well.

Keeping a hearty supply of batteries on hand during the holidays is not only important for gift giving, but also for safety.

You will never regret having them on hand.
