Neighbor Gifts For Christmas

I hope you are all enjoying your Holiday season so far! I feel like it’s going by way to quickly and I need to slow down so I can enjoy it a little more!

Are you all needing some last-minute ideas for neighbor gifts?

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE neighbor gifts! I love all the treats that accumulate on the counter from your friends and the cute Christmas cards I get to hang on my wall for a little while. Now, the downside to that is that I have a hard time coming up with something to give back. I am not a baker and sometimes I get these great ideas to make some treats for everyone and they come out of the oven looking like poo! How can I give something that looks like that to other people!? So I try to stay away from making treats for everybody. Well, this year I came across potpourri. What is potpourri? Well its a mixture of ingredients that you let simmer in a pot or small crock pot to make your home smell wonderful! I knew this was something I could handle. I assembled small bags for friends that they just have to throw in a pot to make their homes smell like Christmas!

Potpourri

Here’s what you need:

1 orange (they will have to slice that)

3/4 C. fresh cranberries

1-2 cinnamon sticks (buy here)

1 tsp whole cloves (buy here)

1 tsp nutmeg (buy here)

large cellophane bags (buy here)

sandwich bags

ribbon (buy here)

Christmas Neighbor Gift Idea

To start I put all the spices into a sandwich bag and tied the top together. Cut the excess plastic off.

I then put everything into a cellophane bag and added a tag with the instructions.

It looks so beautiful all put together and you know it is going to smell amazing!

If you’d like to just copy my tag here’s the file to do it.
