To be honest, most years I stress myself out more about WHAT to take to people than I should. I usually feel the need to come up with something “new and creative”. I’ve realized over the years that I don’t always need to do that.
Our Christmas Gift Delivery Traditions
Being the “Christmas procrastinator” that I am, I find myself frequently scrambling in the last few days before Christmas to get all of our gifts done and delivered. One year we had ALL of our deliveries to do on Christmas Eve and I was super stressed (had to get home to make dinner etc).
We put on Christmas music in the car and let the kids dress up in all of their crazy Christmas attire. They each took turns placing the gifts on our friend’s porches. It turned out to be SO MUCH FUN.
It was also a great way to keep anxious kids preoccupied on Christmas Eve! We came home had dinner, and everyone went to bed. So much better than the years previous where kids were bouncing off the walls with excitement.
After that, it became our annual tradition to deliver treats on Christmas Eve (we even take the dog with us sometimes!). We’ve had to switch it to New Year’s Eve a few times, due to travel, but it’s something that we all look forward to every year now.
Should keep some spare undesignated Christmas gifts handy to give to neighbors or friends who might stop by with a gift for you?
We usually don’t do this. The reason is, our family tradition is to deliver friend and neighbor gifts on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve. If someone drops something by for us, we just make sure to gift them something when we do our deliveries. In my opinion, you can look like you’re caught off guard if you go grab a gift out of a basket for them. It’s better to deliver it in person at a later date.
What if your Neighbors do not Celebrate Christmas?
I love to spread cheer for New Year as well. In fact, for the last two years, our family has gifted boxes of donuts to our friends on New Year’s Eve. If you have friends and neighbors that do not celebrate Christmas, drop something off for the New Year instead.
