Here's 4 reasons why you should forgo giving neighbor Christmas gifts and give New Years gifts instead! Plus easy New Years Gifts for neighbors ideas!
WHY GIVE NEW YEARS GIFTS
Did you run out of time to deliver Christmas gifts for neighbors?
Or do you want to simplify your Christmas season and take one thing off your plate?
Giving New Years gifts instead of the traditional Christmas neighbor gift is a fantastic idea. Here's why:
1- SIMPLIFIES CHRISTMAS
Of course the most obvious reason why giving New Years gifts is a great idea is because it will simplify your Christmas season.
2- MORE TIME
Usually the week between Christmas and New Years is slower paced. The kids are still out of school, work schedules are less demanding, and there is a lot more down time.
This week makes an ideal time to prepare and deliver New Years gifts.
3- UNIQUE GIFTS
While I love creative neighbor gifts just as much as you, you have a whole new world of gift ideas because not many people give New Years gifts.
Sure plates of Christmas cookies, hand soap, Christmas ornaments and the like are wonderful and all, but you can give something really fun and unique if you do a NYE gift.
4- TREATS ARE GONE
By the time New Years comes around, those plates of cookies, tins of popcorn, and other goodies are probably long gone.
By giving a New Year gift, your treat will actually be a treat since there aren't plates and plates to compete with.
NEW YEARS GIFT IDEAS FOR NEIGHBORS
So now that you've decided to wait to give out neighbor gifts until after Christmas, here are some simple gift ideas:
1. JUST POPPIN' BY GIFT FOR NEW YEARS
Cute New Year's Eve idea is this "Just poppin' by to wish you a Happy New Year!" Attach the tags to a box of popcorn, bottle of soda pop, or these party poppers.
2. MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY ROOT BEER
Everyone loves root beer, right? Give a gift they can use on New Year's Eve!
3. COOKIE DOUGH GIFT
Who couldn't use some extra dough after Christmas? Package up some frozen cookie dough for a clever and funny neighbor gift.
Gifting is an integral part of relationships. If you are very close with your neighbor, say, for instance, they are part family too, you might need to think of something truly great to gift them. Now, if they are health conscious, gifting cookies may not be a good way to go about it. You can gift them mushroom tinctures or healthy homemade recipes. Always consider what your recipient would want. You can take your time in gift-making if you do New Year's gifting.
