Neighbor Gifts Galore!

Welcome to the
Categorically Crafting Show

where you can show off all of your fun projects featuring neighbor gifts!

Today's compilation of projects is brought to you by me and Amy from naptime crafters

Nap Time Crafters

Christmas is just around the corner! Whip up some of these fun handmade gifts, so you always have something on hand.

These "root deer" have always been one of my favorites. Head on over to naptime crafters for the how to

These retro dish towels from Flamingo Toes are just too much fun!

Teaginny came up with this darling ruffled wristlet key chain.

For all your friends with a sweet tooth make some decadent royal icing biscuits with Red Ted Art's Blog

And now for my gift ideas!!!
Every neighbor can use some fancied up hand soap or sanitizer. See how to make this at Creations By Kara.

I love all gifts in a jar!!!! The neighbors can use it when they want. Cookie mix, brownie mix, soup mix, soft scrubs, toppings, spices, nuts, cupcakes, pasta, etc. There are so many options. Visit My Delicious Ambiguity to see a round-up of more than 30 gifts in a jar ideas including free printable tags. (Picture from Make It Do.)

Nannygoat made these adorable stamped washer ornaments last year. These would also be fun for your own tree.

Make a CD of your favorite songs and package it in this cute CD holder.
See how to make it at The Creative Itch.

And last (but not least), we've made these deliciously tasty PEPPERMINT MARSHMALLOWS using the recipe from Little Birdie Secrets. We give a packages of hot cocoa mix and a large marshmallow for every person in the family. My neighbors love it (especially their husbands.)

Please join your crafty post if, and only if, it corresponds with the category and theme of Neighbor Gifts. (If it doesn't fit in this category, please link it up to Whatever Goes Wednesday.) Link up crafts, decor, sewing projects, food, tips, etc, that has to do with neighbor gifts.
