Surprise Co-Workers & Friends with Seasonal Treats to Kick of Holiday Cheer! #BICMerryMarking #PeachParfait

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BIC® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


Spread cheer this holiday season by committing random acts of Merry Marking with BIC Mark-It! The super cool markers that make things like organizing paperwork and labeling boxes so much more colorful created a spectacular booklet filled with easy Merry Marking ideas to help your spread joy.

We’ll be sharing a few really simple ideas over the next three weeks, starting with this one! So grab your BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers and get ready for some fun during BIC’s Month of Merry Marking!

Surprise Co-Workers or Friends with Seasonal Treats


One of my favorite things about the season? All the delicious goodies! I love anything with pumpkin in it. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin coffee, tea, donuts, soup- if it has the big orange vegetable in it, I’m in. I work from home and don’t technically have a co-worker. My mom lives with me though. She also works from home. I guess you could call her my office mate? She’s quite the pumpkin pie fan, so I thought “why not surprise her with a treat?” She just had carpal tunnel surgery and definitely could use it.

Supplies Needed:

  • Enough delicious seasonal treats to go around. I went with pumpkin pie and pumpkin chai latte. You can also go with apple cider, peach pie, apple pie, pumpkin donuts…whatever you think your coworkers or friends will love. If you’re awesome in the kitchen, make your own. Otherwise, go ahead and buy them from a store. It’s not about who makes it, it’s about who enjoys it!
  • BIC Mark-It™ Peach Parfait permanent marker. I recommend getting the awesome 36-pack of BIC Mark-It™ permenant markers. It comes in a cool storage case and all the colors you need for Merry Marking!
  • Paper
  • Optional: a pretty tray

How to make it:

  • Gather your goodies and set them out on your tray, if desired. Otherwise, just set them out where everyone can find them.


  • Using your BIC Mark-It™ Peach Parfait marker, write a lovely note telling everyone to enjoy their yummy treat! That’s it! I have horrible handwriting. It comes from years of typing I guess. I printed out a note with the words outlined, then colored them in.

That’s it! Just leave your treats in your office break room or deliver them to your friends! Merry Marking mission complete! See how easy it is to spread cheer with BIC Mark-It™ permanent markers and a few minutes of time?

Along with the fun booklet, BIC is also offering a $1 off coupon! Go get the booklet of merry marking and a coupon to start marking! Share the booklet and nominate others to spread cheer I in BIC’s Month of Merry Marking. I nominate my mom Christina, because she’s itching to get her hands on those markers once she’s healed!  I’m also nominating my friends Marla and Kasey.
