Today I’；ve got a clever and simple last minute neighbor gift idea for you guys! I’；ve even included a free printable tag to help you out! If you like this project then you may also like these Santa Mason Jar Christmas Gifts.？
Ack! What are we at now， 5 days until Christmas!! I’；m sitting here right now without all of my neighbor？gifts made.？ Usually， they’；d be done？right now. Although our family tradition is to deliver them on Christmas Eve， so I shouldn’；t panic yet. It started out years ago as a way to keep the kids occupied during the day on Christmas Eve. When they were little they used to drive. me. crazy. asking when it was “；time”； to do something.accent pillow case baby canvas sofa
One year we all donned Santa hatsdecorative pillow shams， loaded up the minivan， blasted the Christmas music and made the rounds delivering gifts to our friends？and neighbors.？ Each kid took a turn taking the gift to the door.？ We had so much fun that year that we turned it into a yearly tradition. Now all my friends？know don’；t think I’；m a flake， we just deliver later than everyone else *wink* (Although I’；m sure there are still quite a few that think I’；m a flake， and they’；d be right LOL!)
(back when they were smaller—； man how time flies)
Since we deliver on Christmas Eve most of our gifts are “；last minute appropriate”；. We’；ve taken Cookies for Santa， dessert for Christmas Eve Dinner， and boxes of chocolates？in the past.
This year， I thought it would be fun to make a “；punny”； Christmas？gift. Since I’；m always joking that “；I”；m barely holding it all together”； by Christmas Eve I thought I’；d just “；go with it”； and make a fun last minute neighbor gift idea with that same theme.
The tag says： “；Just a few things to help you hold it all together this season. Merry Christmas”；.
