Neighbour gifts {FREEBIE}

Now I know that you won't have your new printer before Christmas, but I wanted to share my first free printable with you anyway.

I live in a really great neighbourhood. People are really friendly and helpful around here, and I'm so glad that this is where we ended up buying our first home. With the holidays upon us, I wanted to make some goodies and wrap them up nicely, to share with my neighbours. This year, I made four things and didn't even really have to bake at all (I think the oven was used for a whopping 5 minutes, all told)! As usual, Pinterest and the Internet proved invaluable in making me look like a goddess in the kitchen... or something like that.

Here's what I made, and what you should make too -

Salted Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bark - The Legume Loyalist

Buckeye Bark - Live Sigma Kappa

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle - allrecipes.com

Peppermint Bark - Martha Stewart
So far, these have been extremely well received, and I couldn't be happier! I like that I didn't absolutely kill myself making things, yet people are still pleased to receive them... that's the kind of holiday treats that I can get behind.

Furthermore, when one makes good treats, one is expected to share, share, share. As I said before, I put together tins for my neighbours to say; 'Thanks, for being a cool neighbour!' (Read: mowing our lawn and shoveling our driveway before we can get to it, all the time). I really should have started this a couple years ago, I missed sharing with a previous neighbour who was awesome... I don't even adapt well to change in my own community! Silly girl.

So check these out, cute right?
