A few days ago I shared a post showing how to make mint chocolate almond bark Christmas cookies (a favorite family recipe).  I like to turn  Christmas treats into neighbor gifts around Christmas to share with family, neighbors, and friends.  I have been blessed in my life with so many wonderful friends, so this time of year I enjoy giving them treats to remind them how loved they are!  It just feels good.  Since Christmas is coming soon, I thought today I would show you how to make Christmas treats into neighbor gifts that your friends will love!

When giving Christmas goodies around the holidays, the first thing you have to do is decide what treats you will share.  Maybe you have your own favorite recipes for Christmas treats.  Maybe you like to share Christmas cookies.  Or perhaps homemade candy.  Maybe you need ideas!  If you need inspiration, here’s a round-up of recipes for some of my favorite shareable treats that I like to give around the holidays:

 

 

 

 

Once you decide what treats you want to share, make a shopping list and go buy your ingredients.  While you are at Wal-Mart, pick up some Rubbermaid TakeAlongs.  They are the perfect way for you to share your holiday treats!  They seal tightly and keep your goodies fresh!

Another thing I like about using Rubbermaid TakeAlongs is around the holidays they are available in cute red, green, or holiday prints, which makes them look festive.  I just stick a label and a bow on them and they are good to go!  No wrapping needed.  They are microwavable, freezer-safe, and safe for the top shelf of the dishwasher.  That’s great if you want to share a meal or frozen dessert!

After I make Christmas treats, it’s fun to go deliver them.  Sometimes instead of knocking on the door I like to just leave the little surprise on their porch and let them find it themselves!

That’s one down and…I don’t know how many…to go!  Good thing I bought lots of Rubbermaid TakeAlongs.  I am going to need them!

 

See you next time!

Thanks for joining Family Joy Linkup again Debra! Those takealongs do look like a nice way to package edible gifts.

We use that same containers; though occasionally I will use decorated tins too.

There are lots of great options, aren't there? The thing that I really love about the Rubbermaid TakeAlongs is the fact that they are airtight. Things don't get stale quickly. Of course, at my house we eat things so fast that they don't get stale anyway! :)

Hi Deb, I like these take-along containers a lot - the size is perfect for a gift or for storing some homemade chili in the fridge. I always enjoyed delivering homemade Cheese Balls with my Dad - he made them for Christmas each year & delivered them with a package of crackers! Blessings, Janet

Oh, yum! I wish someone delivered homemade cheese balls to me! I love them! I never thought of doing that for a Christmas gift. What a great idea!
