19 days 'til Christmas! Yes, I am counting down the days in my house. We can't avoid it with 2 little boys who are as anxious as can be. 19 days sure isn't a lot of time, so you better get thinking about neighbor gifts. Luckily you have us to share some easy ideas with you. I have been preparing a few of mine tonight! I must apologize to all of my (Jessica's) friends who are now going to have the surprise of their gift spoiled for them since I am posting it on here.
First up is the neighbor gift I gave out last year. I realize many people get tons of treats from friends at the holidays, so when I got this gift from a friend a few years ago I was thrilled! She decided to go a different route and give out a roll of wrapping paper. Who doesn't need wrapping paper at the holidays? I passed it on last year and it was a hit. I attached a little tag that said, "Get yourself all wrapped up in the holidays!"
Instead of making cookies I thought it would be fun to do some "cookie mix in a jar" so my friends could bake up the batch of cookies whenever they wanted instead of having too many to eat at once. I found a great site that has a ton of different varieties. Razzle Dazzle Recipes has many other ideas besides cookie mixes as well. I attached the recipe of what they need to add when they make the cookies and slapped on some cute paper and a ribbon. Voila! Very cute and very easy gift.
For an even simpler idea I put some Hershey kisses in a whisk with a tag that reads, "We whisk you a Merry Kissmas!" I am all about the pun on words. So cute and it can't get much easier than this idea.
Although...this one might do it...
The tag reads, "Have a sparkling Christmas."
Don't forget we have a label in our sidebar that says "Christmas Neighbor Gifts" if you want to go back through ideas from throughout the year and from last year.
See, aren't you happy? We've practically crossed one thing off your list for you!
