I have a special treat lined up for you this week!  I am teaming up with Holly from Bits of Everything to bring you gift ideas all week long!  We will for sure be doing a recap at the end of the week of all of the gifts from both blogs, so don’t worry if you miss a day.  I will take good care of you!  Each day we will be focusing on a different type of gift to give to different people.  First up, Neighbor Gifts!

Neighbor Gift idea

When I was in High School, I originally thought of this idea and gave it to a few of my friends.  I thought I would share it because it was a lot of fun, and inexpensive to boot!  There have been a lot of different sayings that you can use on tags that I’ve seen over the years where it is a play on words.  I think they are delightful.  I went with “We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Root Beer”.  See what I did there.  Root Beer instead of New Year?  Yep, I am a nerd.  But I think it is funny and clever.  Hopefully you do too.

Easy Neighbor Gift

The idea of making the root beer bottles into reindeer is a fun one too.  It is really so simple and inexpensive to do, and it adds a lot to the gift.  You will need brown pipe cleaners and a red pom for the nose.  It is probably pretty straight forward how to make the antlers, but in case you need a visual for how I did it, here you go.  Start by twisting the pipe cleaner around the top of the bottle.  Then make a bend in the pipe cleaner about one inch from the jar lid.  Take the end of the pipe cleaner and bend it into a heart shape and then make the pipe cleaner stand up to look like antlers.  Super easy and fun!

Neighbor Gift

I thought I would make a cute tag that I could share with all of you.  I made it in a set of three colors.  After I printed the tags using my printer, I cut them out, punched holes in the top and used raffia to tie it to the box of root beer.

    I’m trying to subscribe so I can print this adorable tag but keep getting an error. What am I doing wrong?

      Thanks for letting me know about the error! I am not sure why it is doing that. It must be something to do with my Feedburner. I will look into it. In the mean time, just like my Facebook page and we will call it good. Hope you enjoy the printable!
