I have to tell you a secret.. my husband has forbidden me from baking for our friends/neighbors for Christmas gifts…. Apparently I’m not in the best “mood” when I make hundreds of gingerbread men or loads of peppermint bark! So the last couple of years, I’ve been trying to come up with other “non-baking” things for our friends for Christmas, and leave the baking for my family.
I shared this before, but thought it would be worth a 2nd mention.. Last year, I gave out popcorn buckets filled with candy.
For the kids bus driver and teachers, I added a gift card to the bucket.
I also ordered a stamp last year from expressionery.com that said “Just for you, love the Mortenson’s” I used it on the tags, and I tell you that stamp has come in handy this year!!
I have NO idea what I’m doing this year, I actually have 4 or 5 ideas, but have yet to settle on one… (good plan huh! Need to get cracking on that one!)
Also, check out this SUPER CLEVER idea from from Angela, of Moda Home Mom. Wouldn’t this be awesome for a teacher or neighbor gift???? Visit her blog for the tutorial.
