neighbor gifts

As we get further into the season the more busy or “merry” our lives become! (ha ha) If you need a gift on the fly try one of these! They are ready made items with a personal touch. 
#1 – a little bubbly is always appreciated.
materials: 
A bottle of Sprite
Red paper
Black paper (I used black glitter paper for a fun add touch of sparkle)
Tulle or ribbon
A printed or handwritten tag that says: May your days be merry and “SPRITE”
The How to: Take your sprite bottle and cut a strip or two of red paper for the belt. Create a buckle from the black paper and glue to the red strip. Place the red strip around the bottle and tape or hot glue on. 

Take your printed or handwritten tag and attach to the top with ribbon or tulle. You are done! 

#2 – Taking a simple candy to the next level, but quick and easily! 
Materials: 
A bag of red Twizzlers
White Almond Bark – melting chocolate
wax paper
sprinkles (optional)
printed or handwritten tag – “TWIZZ” the season to be jolly
The How to: Melt 6 squares of the chocolate in a bowl (I did this in the microwave). Stir. Dip the licorice in the chocolate halfway and place on a large piece of wax paper to harden (GREAT project for the whole family to get involved in). Before they harden is the perfect time to add sprinkles or crushed candy cane, etc. if you want to make it more festive or dress it up. 

Wrap them, bag them or place them on a plate. Include your tag – “TWIZZ the season to be jolly – and you are done! (WARNING – little helpers love to try and sneak these fun treats – hence the tiny finger sneaking into my photo in the top right)

Enjoy your Holidays! xoxo Megan
