Do you have a favorite holiday tradition? One of my favorites is passing out gifts to friends, neighbors, and loved ones near by. We pick a date in December and drive from house to house bringing cheer to those we love.
We usually have such a hard time narrowing down our list, that it grows each year. I think last year we were up to about 30 neighbor gifts! Today, I’m sharing some perfect ideas of things to gift to your neighbors and friends for the holidays.
This is the perfect starting point for finding something to gift to those near you that you care about to spread holiday cheer! Let’s dive right in!
