I was lucky enough to grow up in a real tight-knit neighborhood. Everybody knew each other, and for the most part, everybody even liked each other! One of the perks of living in such a neighborhood as a kid, was the plethora of neighbor gifts we received at Christmas time each year. The doorbell would ring on a cold December night, and it was a pretty sure bet that on the other side of the door there was a plate of homemade caramels and fudge, a bucket of cheese flavored popcorn, a loaf of freshly baked bread, or some other delicious treat. YUM. As a kid it never got old!
As an adult, the hardest part about doing neighbor gifts each year is deciding what exactly to give! It's tricky! Do you find something that works and repeat it every year, or do you like to get creative and try new things?? For the past few years our standby has been bags of chips and salsa from a local restaurant--- but after seeing so many cute ideas online I think it might be time for me to branch out! If you're needing a little inspiration, check out some of these awesome neighbor gift ideas from around the web....
